It has been a long time since I have seen any kind of Occult horror film, never mind one as good as The Good Sisters. In fact, the last movie of this kind I do remember is The Craft. And I really didn't like that at all. Oh how I miss the days of Witchboard and Warlock.
Director Jimmyo Burril has crafted a sleek and utterly amazing Occult movie, and I really couldn't believe how different, and how amazing it was.
April Monique Burril and Debbie Rochon play Kindra and Breanne good. A pair of sisters who are tenth generation descendants of a great witch who was condemned during the Salem witch trials. They live in an apartment complex with several other people, but when a new neighbor moves in and doesn't unpack his belongings,the sisters become suspicious, thinking he is a witch hunter. This paranoia is spread further when the sisters find messages written in chalk outside their apartment. The suspicion gets too much for the sisters, and they turn to black magic for help.
The first thing you will notice about this movie, apart from the beautiful cinematography, is how well April and Debbie act with each other. You really do believe that they are sisters, and this gave the movie an even more believable feel. Their relationship is so close, if I didn't know any better, I would assume they were sisters! The story movies along nicely, building paranoia incredibly well as the sisters become suspicious of everyone in their apartment block.
The movie comes across as very realistic. It is an incredibly well thought out and well written piece of cinema, and should be viewed by anyone with even a fleeting interest in the occult or Wicca, and everyone who is a fan of slow building, intense horror.
I refuse to give anything else away about this movie, as it really does have to be seen. Gore fans may not be happy with the amount of blood in this movie (even though it does contain rather a lot of blood, just not as much as chainsaw sally, but then again, this is a completely different genre of movie).
This movie managed to keep me on the edge of my seat the whole way through, and throw surprises at me left right and center. I loved every minute!
