Lord of Tears (2013)

James Findlay returns to his childhood home deep within the Scottish Highlands to seek out an answer to his waking dreams and nightmares, but what he will discover is far more horrific than he could have ever imagined! The legend of the Owlman comes screeching back to life in Lawrie Brewster's chilling supernatural thriller, LORD OF TEARS. From its earliest moments, LORD OF TEARS immerses us in a rich and haunting atmosphere that is teeming with suspense. The gloomy aesthetic and oppressive mood each present an uncanny resemblance to the traditional Horror films of the region, recalling similar works by the Hammer greats Terence Fisher and John Gilling. Writer Sarah Daly lends a unique mythology to the picture as she lets loose the Owlman against our unsuspecting protagonist, although he may find more to fear within his own shrouded memories than in the beast's mighty talons. While Brewster's visual palette continues to impress from start to finish, his timely approach to storytelling may leave many viewers bored to tears. The film's development comes at a slow and deliberate pace, a fact that will be appreciated by Horror classicists, but which may not appeal to many modern filmgoers. Once the Owlman cometh, however, all will fall prey to his terrifying gaze. LORD OF TEARS will certainly find its audience in fans of THE WICKER MAN, WAKE WOOD, THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES, and THE PLAGUE OF THE ZOMBIES.

Rating: 7/10.
