The makers of The Mind’s Eye love their ’80s genre cinema and they wear that affection as a badge of honor. Like he did with his debut feature, Almost Human, writer/director Joe Begos has made a horror movie that looks like it time-warped straight out of 1982. The synth soundtrack is appropriately icy, the practical make-up effects nasty, and the performances pitched just to the right of hammy. This film killed amongst a certain subsection of horror fans at last year’s Fantastic Fest, where it also took home the award for Best Horror Director.
The trailer for the film has arrived online and you will probably know whether or not this is your kind of movie after watching it. The Mind’s Eye caters to a very specific audience of horror nerds. You know who you are.
