Although concepts may differ, central themes mirror in story or execution. What I will say is that a small group of friends get together for a little drinking, a hint of debauchery and some dabbling with the feared Ouija board. Roles were expressed with fluidity and naturalness. The sound quality was pretty bad. Ken Artuz will create a media empire built on the DecayMag Brand.
Isaac is hosting the party at his house. It is during this debate that actions ignites an unforgettable evening. The environment projects a life of its own. Pros: Presented is a well-choreographed chemistry between each character. It all starts with the script, written by director Stephen Shimek with Katy Baldwin and Kristi Shimek.
In conclusion: Nocturne is a fresh perspective on a familiar trend. What it is, is an amalgamation of different ideas, with psychological terror and paranormal activity leading the fearsome charge. The effects were really impressive and certainly one of the higher quality parts of the film. She has maybe the most interesting character arc without giving anything away. In the end, what makes this film so good is the attention to detail and the respect it has for the characters and story.
Artuz is a graduate of The Institute of Audio Research where he earned his degree in Audio Engineering and Record Production. Comments Have you watched Nocturne yet? No dumb decision making to advance the plot. The film begins with a cold open or is it a flash forward? It is this approach that awards a sense of realism within the scene. And I will say that a couple of those classic horror clichés were done very well. She is having a nervous breakdown in her car. Intent of making the best of the night, the group performs a séance to learn more about the futures that lie before them.
At first, that seemed somewhat bland and uninspired. The cast and crew take measured risks time and again, and those risks pay off pretty well. He also earned certification in Television Production and Field Recording at Lehman College. Melanie Stone as Vi also deserves a round of applause. Clever camera work coupled with imaginative ambiance transform the abode into an inescapable labyrinth. Presented is the classic battle between skeptic and believer of the unknown. Shimek crafts originality to a story seen many times over.
The score gets a lot of the credit for that. All of the actors looked older than high-schoolers but one in particular, Maren, looked and initially behaved more like a parent or maybe an older sister. They have hopes and dreams and people that will miss them if they die. After a while this engagement in the film becomes comical. Instead, they are disappointed to find that only a handful of their friends show up. While the production is well executed therein lies a recurring formula.
The camera then shows the outside of the hot tub and reveals to us that Isaac is boiling to death while he and the rest are inside have the séance. Shimek, who has a background in special effects, could have used this film as an opportunity to make a glorified demo reel. A more stylized approach would have killed the empathy we have for the characters, and made the supernatural elements seem silly. Time is given to each of their respected backstories. But nothing reminded me of that later. Nocturne is an indie film, and its fiscal limitations are easily detectable. The film did such a poor job of introducing the characters that I became irritated trying to figure out who everyone was and what their relationship was to each other.
The cinematography and set design are very naturalistic. From self-inflicted wounds to demonic evidence, each display is eye-catching. You can make a good movie without killing an animal that has nothing to do with the story line. She senses something is out there and even catches a glimpse of a figure disappearing behind a tree. All the characters are established through an entertaining scene where Gabe performs a card trick. They just need to put less focus on gags and more on the characters so that what happens to them will matter to us, the viewers. The dramatics are nail-biting and edge-of-your-seat inducing.
The soundtrack keeps it all together. Now, before we get into the various whats and wheres of how you can watch 'Nocturne' right now, here are some particulars about the Escapology horror flick. A cat and mouse chase between mortals and the force of evil dominate the film. Unfortunately, the seemingly innocent game goes terribly wrong and they soon find that they are not alone in the house. The setting to Nocturne dwells within one locale. Some of which were poorly executed.
