‘The Horror’ was written by Sarah Carman and Raymond Creamer, with Jerry J. White III serving as director. The movie stars  Schell M. Peterson (The Road To Hell), Lexi Moeller (Underneath), Callie Ott (An American in Venice),  Raymond Creamer (Cats Dancing on Jupiter), Chris Oliver and Gary Crites. Ellie Cecala and Cory Coleman make their acting debuts in this Indie film.

Brother and sister Malcolm and Isabell (Raymond Creamer and Callie Ott) have recently lost their parents to a car accident. Malcolm was there during the accident and had to watch his parents die, but he seems to be holding up better than Isabell. Malcolm hasn’t been the same since the wreck. As if things couldn’t get worse the two are attacked at the family’s cabin by masked men, but luckily neither are seriously hurt.Malcolm has formed an obsession with finding the mask that one of the attackers lost in the lake. Isabell is growing very concerned with her brother, and rightly so, Malcolm is scaring people and is making a descent into madness.


‘The Horror’ has an uncommon method of cinematography, but it fits the film nicely. Much of the movie is told by Isabell during her therapy sessions with glimpses into Malcolm’s strange behavior. Both Raymond Creamers and Callie Ott play their parts well. Creamer really captures that subtle psychotic impressions well. The focal point of the movie is not necessarily the events that Malcolm and Isabell experience, but the relationship and bond between the siblings, which makes and interesting story. I do wish we would have seen the full story of what takes place in the end, but I was satisfied.It’s all about the story and build up in this movie, which made for an interesting film and an enjoyable viewing experience.  If you are looking for a horror movie full of gore, blood and nonstop action, ‘The Horror’ isn’t the one for you, but if you’re looking for something different that will leave you wondering, I would recommend ‘The Horror’.

‘The Horror’ is currently showing at festivals and is seeking distribution.  Follow ‘The Horror’ on FaceBook and Twitter .
