Would-be thriller about snuff films is a snooze.
A psychological thriller requires some psychology as well as thrills, two things almost entirely absent from Gut.
Unfolding in awkward diner conversations and uncomfortable bedroom scenes, "Gut" has a cold, flat look that gives even a child's stuffed toy a sinister sheen.
In a world awash with backyard horror films with little more to offer than a couple of screaming broads and some ropey CG, Gut offers emotion, dark and potent.
Perhaps the greatest achievement is Elias' masterful use of faraway glances to build Tom's growing dilemma.
This is a smart horror film that employs a carefully calibrated and low key style to turn the screws on both the characters and the audience.
We're looking at an early David Cronenberg in the making here. Gut is Troma-fan Elias' love letter for his fellow horror buffs...
A cerebral and shocking bit of horror for fans who love brain candy with their grue...
Gut is slow burn horror equal to setting a crock pot on low and letting it stew all day, taking entirely too long to achieve what payoff awaits.
'Gut' starts off interestingly as a bored husband becomes obsessed with a series of DVDs featuring killings which may or may not be real. Unfortunately the film is incredibly amateurish, featuring some of the worst acting I've seen all year. The cheap digital aesthetic makes it hard to watch, particularly when combined with such poor lighting and framing.
Director Elias seems intent on copying the glacial style of Cronenberg and Haneke but needs to learn a lot about the basics of film-making first.
