Dark August

Dark August

Directed by Martin Goldman

Sal, an out-of-towner relocated to a small rural community, finds himself at the mercy of dark forces after inadvertently killing a young girl in a car accident. Pursued at every turn by the girl's grandfather and a menacing, shrouded figure, Sal soon becomes convinced that the old man has placed a hex on him and seeks out the assistance of a local psychic medium. Filmed entirely on location in Vermont, which cinematographer Richard E. Brooks captures in all its rustic, autumnal beauty, Dark August - originally entitled The Hant - is a quiet, insidious horror picture perfect for those who like their chills to creep up on them.

Sal is such a needy, annoying cartoon, that even even wears the same clothes throughout this entire mess.

Paranoia and witchcraft abound in this folky hidden gem from 1976. Its sophisticated camera work transcends what was surely a shoestring budget and offers a beautiful glimpse of the Vermont countryside. Surprisingly well-acted. The film’s pace may annoy some viewers, but not this one.

It was interesting and erneast. The cinematography was excellent. Acting good. It just didn't come together. It's worth a watch.
