A peaceful sky, wind in the trees, a ladybug sitting on a blade of wheat. Nothing happens in New Caney, Texas. On Halloween night, the picture-perfect Americana of this farming town is quiet, and remains undisturbed. Time moves painfully slowly. Rose sits by herself, smoking a cigarette, scaring the kids away. She wears a mask, like so many others that night. With her husband, freshly back from the war, Rose is off to the village’s annual horror show. Everything is fake – the scar, the red paper blood and the harness on the hanged woman. Only death is real. But the only way to tell you about death is to let you see it for yourself.
With his third feature, after ANGUISH and FAMILY BLOOD, Sonny Malhi is back at Fantasia. His signature is very recognizable: the subtle tones of a real-life drama, a true story, cleverly intertwined with the flavours of a hardcore slasher flick that has nothing to envy on the master Carpenter and co. Lost in an atmosphere that is as disturbing and brutal as it is real, Mallhi’s characters evolve in a maze of confusion, anxiety and violence. The collective psychosis of American culture is an inescapable horror film, a waking nightmare. Its story transcends those of fear’s mascots Jason, Freddy and Michael. Their masks are icons, familiar and reassuring faces. But what about those who helplessly wear the mask of normalcy while desperately fighting the monster of trauma within? – Celia Pouzet
