New Zealand 2010, 98 minutes
Dir. Jason Stutter
Rating: [M]
Genres: Comedy, Suspense/Crime

Topics: Gothic.


Aroview: A macabre comic adventure of murder and blackmail in rural Taranaki in the 30's, this follows CAME A HOT FRIDAY, THE SCARECROW and PALLET ON THE FLOOR as the last film adaptation of cult author Ronald Hugh Morrieson's novels.

Dir. Jason Stutter graduates from the no-budget genre comedies TONGAN NINJA and DIAGNOSIS: DEATH, which both made virtues of their knowing cheesiness, but this more sophisticated prospect proves less forgiving of shifts in tone and performance, though it stacks up handsomely in the production design department. While perhaps too innocuous to genuinely thrill adult audiences, its boys-own, old-fashioned sensibility will certainly engage younger viewers looking for a spirited Gothic romp with a local twist.
