"The Oregonian" teases us with horror and amnesia-mystery conventions without sealing the deal either way.

Advocates of bad-trip cinema, you may commence cult-worshipping this warped nightmare now.

Writer-director Calvin Lee Reeder, making his feature debut, isn't interested in satisfying the conventional expectations of an audience.

Tedious horror experiment steals gimmicks from actual avant-garde works and makes them look dull.

Reeder shows a knack for unsettling audiovisual textures, but once it's clear The Oregonian will offer no real storyline or explanations, viewer patience wears thin.

It's the kind of movie you'd find in someone's VHS collection, decide to watch based on the box art and title, and end up switching out for The House of the Devil instead.

Reeder has a feel for the indelibly creepy; some of the visions he conjures felt like the kinds of nightmares I might have in my nightmares.

In Calvin Lee Reeder's unsentimental feature, nature is a place where you get lost, and where there's a threat around every corner.

Audience Reviews for The Oregonian

A woman has an accident driving in the deserted woods and finds herself trapped in a world where nothing makes sense. The director, Calvin Reeder, accurately describes it as a "surrealist/experimental movie with splashes of horror"; about a fourth of the audience walked out of the screening I saw, more likely from boredom than shock. If you're going to make a film with essentially no plot, every individual scene needs to be a knockout, and that's just not the case with THE OREGONIAN. But it gets points for remaining defiantly weird, and for a couple of very nice funny/creepy touches: a man whose pee turns all the colors of the rainbow, and a man-sized green muppet character.
