just too much of everything

I did like the cinematography, overall fitting choice of music, acting was ok, but for my tastes the whole movie uses too much of everything. The story would alone be enough to keep you entertained, but then there is a lot of action, and there are a lot of classic horror type of elements included, like occultists, flashbacks, sudden scares. One problem is that these genres require different type of treatments. If you want to focus on the drama, you shouldn't saturate the movie with classic horror type of scares. For a drama, all the characters are too simple and too "sketched". If you want to take the characters and their development seriously, you can't include a classic horror type of character like the reception lady. If you make the viewer mentally active with following the little bits of information from the past, you have to provide an explanation, on how Katie managed to stay unnoticed with the occultists for all those years. How were they able to paint those signs everywhere, how were they able to follow Sam unnoticed, etc. Of course, that way the ending would loose it's edge, but this way it leaves you with a lot of questions and dissatisfaction. We would need to know more about Katie. Also it seems that the only person who has emotions is Sam, she is being painted the only human being in this very desolate world, yet in the end you realize that the whole movie is about her punishment. Really? Does she really deserve that? Do we really deserve that? To see our heroine getting completely destroyed? We only get about 3 seconds of flashback in the very end that should be explaining her guilt - but then we are also told previously, that she had thought Katie did it intentionally . So in the end, i think you have to make a choice if you are focusing on the emotional, or the mental side. You can't mix the two like this movie. I did like the way the movie was able to paint how Sam was feeling with the music and the unusual pictures, but i think you need to give something to the viewer in the end.

Because now it kinda sounds like: "Don't kick the girl you think has intentionally cheated with your boyfriend, so that she gets an abortion, because you will loose your child and eventually suffer for many years just to get back to your town, get almost killed a couple of times to get finally killed much more epicly. "

My Review Of "HELLmington"

The story distorts perspective by forcing elements of near psychotica inducing moments that cause you to question the protagonist's mental state. "HELLmington's" main plot is a suspensful mystery involving a cold case that once revealed is disturbing, and relevant. It plays out like a dark web nightmare version of a ID channel episode.

At the start, the film is both confusing, distorted and emotionless. A stylistic trick that is as visually creative as it is questioning. Much like the actually story line- what happened in 1999?, Who is messing with Samantha Woodhouse?, and how much of the story is even real? I can't tell if this warping of the film's beginning is intentional artistry or accidental. I did find it intriguing.

The cast create some stoic, gothic characters reminiscent of Fargo' or 'Twin Peaks'. There are moments when the story trips on it's own weightiness. It is a dark, slumbering plot. Still, "HELLmington" begins to show it's true depth of darkness around 50 minutes in and the suspense and chilling nature becomes elevated.

The horror never really gets there fully, but atmospherically it is creepy- in a sleepwalking down an alleyway after midnight- kinda way. There is visual elements that play on occult horror thems, much in the way 'Riverdale' did it with the Gargoyle King. The cinematography moves from unimaginative stationary shots to some truly stunning horror fueled thriller moments. Overall "HELLmington" is a nice, chilling nightmare with a twist ending.

Great build up. . .

Great build up. Some interesting storylines and then suddenly, it's as though the viewer says "Oh, the villian must be blah!" Writer "OK, you got me! Guess we're done here. The end."

A couple of the major plots seem completely disparate and then, suddenly.. the end credits roll?
