I know, it's really not that exciting, but we're happy that we at least got to start of the year off with a new movie that delivered an intense, harrowing experience, even if it wasn't a perfect one.
Also, we're pretty sure that this is the first ever Latvian Horror movie, so that's kinda cool too.
Nice job, Latvia, on all counts.
|BEWARE: THERE ARE SOME MILD SPOILERS AHEAD.|
|AHEAD LIES RETRIBUTION.|
|AWW, SHE THINKS SHE'S GOING SOMEWHERE.|
A Latvian fever dream ensues.
|LIKE HE CAN'T SEE YOU BEHIND THAT SKINNY-ASS TREE?|
I'd really like to call this one a Slasher flick, because it had plenty of stalk 'n slash aspects about it, but really it's more of a Psychological Horror flick if it's anything. At times, especially at the beginning, this one reminded us a lot of Haute Tension; what with its silent, hat-wearing madman stalking after people and killing them violently. On that level, when this movie works, it works very well as far as intensity and atmosphere goes.
|THAT ENDING THOUGH...|
|WAS IT REAL?|
That could have been a great scene.
|SWEET, SWEET LATVIAN LOVE.|
|HE SURE KILLED THE HELL OUT OF HER THOUGH.|
|DON'T JUST STARE AT IT, DAN!|
|SHE'S NOT A FISH, YOU KNOW.|
Still, this was a gripping movie that we'd recommend you check out when it hits VOD at the end of the month.
The Man in the Orange Jacket will be available on VOD outlets beginning on January 26th.
The Man in the Orange Jacket: Anta Aizupe and the smoking hot Gaile sisters, Katerina and Tatyana.
