Audience Reviews for Deadwood Park
While it's a good looking low budget horror feature, it's too damned long and I was only about halfway invested in after a certain point, because it does feel overlong and meandering at times. Rental?
The story is fairly original and quite engaging. It develops slowly, at times too slowly, but its slow development and lingering scenic shots serve to build a sense of eerieness that reminds me of an M.R. James story. The cinematography and editing are both very well done and the musical score is good. The acting isn't great but it is good. The multiple flashbacks are very simply and effectively handled and do not create the confusion that flashbacks often can. The special effects work is not all that good (with the major exception of an excellent creature in the WWII flashback) but this film is not so reliant on special effects for that to matter much. All in all, this unusual twist on the idea of a vampire movie is an exceptional low budget horror movie and well worthy of three-and-one-half or maybe four stars.
Great horror/mystery and oh what a payoff! Stanze does it again while constantly maturing as a filmmaker. It could be described as slow but it leads up to such a surprising conclusion that totally breathes new life into a certain horror convention that a lot of it's flaws are completely forgotten in the final moments. Still, I was intrigued throughout and never found it that slow going. Deadwood Park is melting in the dark, all the sweet green icing flowing down...
