Love is Hell
this movie may not be for everyone but I can't help but enjoy it
What did I just watch..?
The characters were interesting, the story line compelling and frankly the fact that it takes place in one place and just shows visions of other scenes just adds to the twisted humor of the situation, and lo as a character was just immaculate, full of a mixture of taunts, dark humor and a strange- yet still twisted- compassion, always warning the main character to turn back and warns him of what could happen
All in all-
Beautiful movie that deserves more recognition than what it gets
This film is about demons, magic spell books, and the supernatural -- pretty common place, horror movie fare, but the twist here is mostly in the cinematography and the dialogue.
"Lo" is full of witty banter and self-awareness: the fact that this film was influenced by cult franchises "Buffy, The Vampire Slayer" and "The Return Of The Living Dead" couldn't be more obvious.
The acting is a little choppy at times, and the picture has the grainy look of a movie from the '90s (which I'm almost certain was intentional by the director), but the high points of the film are definitely it's make-up design (with the one exception of a talking hand -- you'll see); it's great script; compellingly original storyline; and the simple fact that the entire freakin' movie was shot in one room with VERY limited set pieces!
"Lo" is amazingly funny, brilliant, zany, and at times kinda creepy... it won numerous accolades from indie film awards, and is well worth a watch if not just for the giant dancing rats and musical numbers performed by a triceratops-head demon in a nazi uniform. I give "Lo" a 9 out of 10 ("great"). XD
