| Hallows Point An Entertaining Horror Movie
Hallows Point has an original look and feel to it that I found refreshing and very entertaining. Maybe I'm just burned out of the torture/grisly movies because that's all I've seen lately, but HP had a throwback 80's feel to it that I enjoyed - not that I'm a big fan of 80's horror - much of it stunk, but this movie had the same feel but updated with an involving, intricate storyline and modern editing techniques that helped keep the story moving briskly.

One of the nicest surprises for this low budget movie is how great it looks - beautiful lighting and an abandoned schoolhouse set that looked cold and gritty. Another plus that few independent horror movies offer is an original soundtrack that sticks in your mind well after you've finished watching it. The cast is pretty good with special kudos to Tom Nowicki who gives a creepy performance as the evil Nathanial Raber without overdoing it.

The thing that impressed me the most is what maybe a turn off to some though. Hallows Point doesn't go for cheap thrills or sadistic exploitation. While it does offer some blood and guts, it avoids many of the clichés independent horror movies usually rely on and tries to be different and not follow the recent horror trends. Some will admire this trait, others won't because they want the same old stuff under a different title.

I'm not going to give away the ending here, but I will say that it rocks and is one of the best horror endings I've seen in a long time and was the perfect wrap-up to a cool movie.
