THE PLOT THUS FAR

Michael left home when he was a teenager and never looked back. Now, after the death of his sister, Chloe, he’s returning home with his fiancee Juliette and his angst ridden nephew Brandon. On arrival, they realize that home isn’t exactly what it used to be. With high walls surrounding the house and security cameras in every nook and cranny it’s more of a military compound than anything else. Enter Gary, Michael’s estranged father who, while happy to be reunited with his son and grandson, seems more distracted by other things. As the strange family reunion commences, an uninvited guest shows up and we learn bits and pieces about the real reason behind Chloe’s death and why Brandon is so closed off from Michael. This fractured family will have to come together to fight the ghosts of their pasts and make it out alive!

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.

RELEASE DATE: OUT NOW!
