Compound Fracture Reviews
The film has a great antagonist in Derek Mears character of William; a character far scarier than any he ever played wearing a mask. William is a violent man with serious control issues who finds himself cursed in a way he never expected. The film uses this character for the brunt of the violence, but the character is equal parts creepy.
The mood of the film is set early with its isolated location and strange, cryptic symbols painted everywhere.
If I was forced to pick a "flaw" in Compound Fracture; it would be that the film ends in a stereotypical/franchisable way, but that is a minor thing when held against the overall quality of this film. If; in fact there ever is a sequel, I would be interested in seeing it.
I give this film the rating of: Keeper. (that means that it is worth owning when it becomes available to the home viewing market.) Thanks for reading this review.
