Mohawk Review

Fresh from his ghostly triumph We Are Still Here, writer/director Ted Geoghegan finds himself combing the woods for a different kind of horror with Mohawk. One part revenge thriller, one part historical drama, one part home invasion where the United States is the home being invaded, this ambitious indie project delivers a spark of real-world tragedy yet falls prey to its low budget limitations.

The hook of Mohawk seems simple, but old grudges add gasoline to the fire and ensure no one leaves without blood on their conscience. It opens near the end of the War of 1812 as tribe members Oak (Kaniehtiio Horn) and Calvin Two Rivers (Justin Rain), and British soldier Joshua Pinsmail (Eamon Farren) try to convince elder Wentahawi (Sheri Foster) to join in war against the Americans. She refuses, and things start racing downhill once Two Rivers murders a bunch of American militiamen as they sleep. A cadre of American soldiers is dispatched to hunt him down, but, like the old adage says, if you embark on a journey of revenge dig, like, fifteen or sixteen graves.

We Are Still Here trailer

Riding a wave of good festival showings and positive reviews, the horror film We Are Still Here begins to hit theaters and VOD this weekend. Ted Geoghegan made the film as his directorial debut, and the story follows a couple as they attempt to put a traumatic loss behind them by moving to a nice house out in the New England countryside. But the house has secrets, and it hungers. There’s clearly a vein of humor that runs through this one, alongside inspiration from Lovecraft and some other weird fiction. Check out the new We Are Still Here trailer below. Read More »

We Are Still Here trailer

We Are Still Here looks like a mean, constrained monster movie, as it follows a couple who move into a new home, only to find that they have stumbled into a situation that will claim their lives. The film is set to play in the Midnight lineup at SXSW in Austin, TX in March.

This We Are Still Here trailer is a great introduction to the film — it begins with a casual conversation featuring comments about murder and unwitting cannibalism, and then jumps right into monsters punching right through someone’s chest. Genre faves like Barbara Crampton and Larry Fesseden are in the cast, and We Are Still Here looks almost like a spin on Lovecraftian horror. Check out the footage below. Read More »
