Movie Info

Eighteen years after disappearing without a trace, Cornelius Rawlings (The Athlete) returns to his family's farm. While his parents are long deceased, Cornelius's brothers Ezra (The Matriarch) and Amos (The Artist) continue to live in isolation on this old, forgotten land. Wilbur, their farmhand, sleeps in a tractor tire out back. One day, the toilet breaks. A plumber is called. That man, Red 'Rooster' Rippington, shares his bed with a pretty young girl named Savannah. He also happens to be a figure from Cornelius and Amos's past. It will take the efforts of a mysterious drifter to smother the Rawlings Brothers' demons once and for all. -- (C) Sundance Selects

Critic Reviews for Septien

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (8)

  • It's all a labored sort of strange, like someone forcing himself to have a bad dream.

    Jul 14, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • There's an unkillable something at the heart of "Septien," an artistic ambition that's not calculated or cynical, that feels homegrown American but is thoroughly resistant to totalitarian spectacle and the manufactured tides of mass opinion.

    Jul 7, 2011
  • The setup and storyline are absurd, but the angst underneath is as earnest as a campfire confession.

    Jul 7, 2011 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • As intriguing as the movie is, there's the sense that its free-associative story line has been dredged up from its maker's unconscious and recounted without filter or shape.

  • This low-budget paean to indoor plumbing and rampant facial hair doesn't unfold so much as unravel.

    Jul 5, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/5
  • Never the same movie for five minutes straight, Septien can't sit still.

    I was flipping through the movie channels looking for a movie to watch.The description said *After 18 years a man returns home looking to seek revenge on the town that wronged him with the help of his 2 deranged brothers-Horror* I thought now that sounds AWESOME!!! After watching Septien I thought WTF!? This was NOT a horror flick.It wasn't scary.It wasn't gory.It was a rip off! It was way different then what I expected.It was weird & a waste of time & I was majorly disappointed
