THE PLOT THUS FAR
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Compound Fracture” is packed with a lot of my favorite unsung heroes of the active horror field. That being said, the plot never really kicks in for me. The quick jump set up from creepy paranormal junk in the woods to flashback felt forced. Creepy family stories never really kick it up for me. Usually, you need a director that is able to evoke mood to do that.
Most modern horror movies leave me cold. While I give this film credit, since it appears to be a first time effort. That being said, I do see room for improvement. It’s not like we’re going to see the talent involved get worse. If anything, it reminds me of the kind of stuff that I used to rent all the time as a teenager. Good enough for base entertainment.
The DVD comes with no substantial special features. The A/V Quality is on par with most standard definition releases. The Dolby track does the trick. However, I expected more out of the transfer. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
