Director: Chad Ferrin. Review: Adam Wing.
When a director informs you that – in order to make a movie – he sold his house and didn’t make a dime, you realise just how personal the art of filmmaking can be. That will probably be the last time I use the word ‘art’ in the same sentence as ‘a Chad Ferrin movie’. In a humorous introduction to his breakout movie, Unspeakable, Chad is incredibly honest about his hopes for the DVD release of his “warts and all” debut. In an emotional plea to the camera, he informs the audience that – with the aid of a recognised distributor – he hopes to afford some filtered cigarettes. We all have dreams I guess.
Chad Ferrin is a low-budget horror filmmaker from Minnesota. Shot for just $20,000, Unspeakable was his writing and feature-directing debut. Unspeakable is available for the first time this month courtesy of Cine du Monde, no strangers to the work of Chad Ferrin. The good folk at Cine du Monde were also responsible for the release of his 2006 oddity, Easter Bunny, Kill! Kill! Great title I know. Despite a slower start than a teasing tortoise, EBKK is a movie that bounces away with your common sense and taste. It sure takes its time to get there, but Ferrin’s gut-punching gore fest is a low budget horror movie worth its weight in gold-en foil. Unspeakable – warts and all – attempts the same trick, but can Ferrin pull the rabbit out of the hat for the second time, or are some things better left unsaid...Continue review here.
