Audience Reviews for Sella Turcica

½

The newest film from Toetag Pictures takes a more serious turn than the August Underground series, Maskhead, or even The Redsin Tower. The film's title refers to a portion of the human skull, and the movie is obviously a homage to Bob Clarke's classic Dead of Night (aka Deathdream and several other titles) in which a family receives a report that their son has been killed in action during the Vietnam War only to have him return home the next day. Sella Turcica by no means follows the same development as Clarke's zombie classics; however, the influence is readily apparent. For the most part, Sella Turcica is a badly acted drama that ultimately takes a twisted turn. The ending will not disappoint, but it does take a while to get there--the film is almost two hours long. Overall, Sella Turcica marks a welcome departure for the Toetag gang as they attempt to inject story and depth while also trying to maintain their brutality. Sella Turcica fails mainly because the acting is so terrible--the bad acting in the August Underground films, Redsin Tower, and Maskhead is forgiveable because those films are meant to be a twisted blend of humor and mutilation. However, if Toetag wants to make more serious films like this, then they are going to have to find actors and actresses who can pull off the parts.
