in the dessert, things always go South. Two men running from
something, a girl's band with a flat tire, a man who didn't pay
attention to the road, a man searching for his long lost sister and a
family who's father got something to hide. Secrets, demons, karma,
it all eventually either follows or chases you down, you can run, you
can hide, but you can't out run it in Southbound (2015).
on Earth, it's here and we just don't know it. Sinners beware down
South is where hell is. Two men are chased by bone angels of death.
A group of girls get taken in by Satanists. A man runs over a girl
and tries to save her, but only tortures her to death. A man tries
to save his sister he lost 13 years ago only to discovers the truth,
she wants to live with demons (really). And things come full circle
when a family gets brutally assaulted and murdered by the 2 men and
they turn into the bone angels of death.
This was a series of
horror short stories, while none of them are directly related to each
other, they are indirectly related in the writer's idea of an
anthology of some kind. Everything seemed filmed in the same town,
all the same places just different times. It is a story of a single
town that is full of immortal demon humans with a bit of supernatural
powers. The film was like watching/listening to camp fire horror
stories that people tell, with mixed results from multiple directors.
anamorphically enhanced 2.35 X 1 image is poor and weak, while the
lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mix is somehow worse, so brace yourself
for poor playback. Extras include commentary, deleted scenes,
outtakes and photo gallery.
