Available TODAY on digital platforms, as well as On Demand services, is the horror anthology, Lilith.
I have to say, the movie’s poster is one of the scariest posters I have seen in a long time, and I’m a huge fan of the horror movie genre.
The movie stars Vernon Wells (The Road Warrior, Commando), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp, ), Devanny Pinn (House of Mansion, ), and Thomas Haley (Camp Twilight).
The film was co-written by Alex T.Hwang and Anthony Werley, and directed by Hwang, releases on digital from Terror Films.
Here is the film’s official synopsis;
Lilith is a horror anthology, which follows the Demon Lilith, who punishes men for their indiscretions against women. A figure in Jewish mythology, developed earliest in the Babylonian Talmud between the 3rd and 5th centuries, Lilith is a dangerous demon of the night seeking her revenge. As she follows 4 men who have sinned against women, a detective is trying to stop her before she executes each victim and claims their souls.
The director of the film, Alex T. Hwang, added his thoughts to this film.
“A movie should move an audience emotionally in a certain way; make them laugh, cry, and think, but in a horror movie, the audience should be scared and loath the evil characters they see on a screen. Steven Spielberg did that with Jaws, John Carpenter with The Thing and Halloween and Alfred Hitchcock with Psycho. These movies are not only horrifying but make you emotionally charged when you are done watching them. And you can’t help rewatching.
I wanted to make a film that’s scary yet also makes an audience think. Is Lilith evil or an avenging Angel? She punishes the sinners, while doing justice for their victims.
It is horrifying to see how Lilith punishes those men who have done wrong to women. From greedy teenagers, a cheater, to a serial killer – they all get what they deserved.
With Lilith I just wanted to accomplish one thing, entertain.”
I did have the opportunity to screen the film ahead of time. Sadly, it wasn’t really my “cup of tea.” If you are die-hard horror movie fan, you’ll want to pass on this film. If you are someone who is easily scared, then this film might be worth checking out for you.
I honestly only watched the first story in this anthology. I found it more laughable than scary. For that reason I didn’t continue to watch anymore of the film. The acting was horrible (more like a student film than a studio film), and the “special effects” make up to make the demon look scary just looked like she was a hungover girl who didn’t wash her face from the night before.
I found the film painful to watch, and I simply couldn’t go on watching it. Maybe it got better, I don’t know. After all, it’s an anthology, which means it contains more than one story. But if they were anything like the first one, then watching to the end of the movie would have been a waste for me.
Even the first few minutes of the film (before the first story) was very “cheesy” to say the least.
I am just one person, and these are my thoughts. My mom used to always tell me “one man’s meat is another man’s poison.” That means what is great/not so great for one person won’t be the same for another person. A review is just that, one person’s opinion.
There have been plenty of movies over the years that revered movie critics totally hated, but I thought was an awesome film. Even classic films like Elf and A Christmas Story did horrible in theaters, but went on to become classics.
