A refresher for indie horror films… The Remaining is a shocker in all the right ways.
They always say “don’t judge a book by its cover” and it is completely true when it comes to The Remaining. Almost all of the reviews that I have read were negative and that stopped me from watching The Remaining when it came out last year. Thankfully, it was on Rogers On Demand and I decided to watch it since I wasn’t doing anything for Thanksgiving and what I have to say about The Remaining is…
Your eyes will be glued to screen; whether you find The Remaining scary or not. The storyline and biblical influence fascinated me and getting to see how Casey La Scala portrayed his vision through his film was beyond amazing. La Scala’s choice of actors was perfect for this style of film. Since it has a touch of found footage, the choice of actors needs to be underrated for that realness factor. With mainstream actors, they unfortunately aren’t as versatile. With the main actors of The Remaining, though I’ve watched them in various other films their previous characters never popped in my head because they still have that realness in their talent. I was so attached to each character and I was rooting for them make through to the end.
Every disaster that took place seemed as real as it could; I even forgot at one point that it was an indie film. The characters dialogue and storyline was not cliché opposed to what other reviews might say. The special FX was jaw dropping from beginning to end and I am honestly annoyed at anyone who wouldn’t give The Remaining a chance.
The Remaining is not a mainstream movie with no mainstream actors and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Watch The Remaining On Demand or even purchase it on Amazon or YouTube. You will not regret it.
DON’T LET THE DEMONS BITE, OR DO; YOU FREAKS!!!
