Originality is a rare commodity found in films. When it comes to horror, it can take decades before a film emerges that has a fresh approach on how to terrify. Most of the time new releases follow the successes of the past like the slasher, found footage, and possession crazes. However, creating a movie that incorporates existing themes and ideas can still be effective if done in a creative and stylistic way. Take one part John Carpenter’s “Halloween”, the anthology theme of “VHS”, the heart of the slasher genre, and out comes the indie “All Hallows’ Eve”.
