Uncle John

Uncle John

Directed by Steven Piet

John is a kindly, well-liked old man in a small rural town. John has just killed a man named Dutch. Dutch had done a lot of bad things to a lot of nice people. Nobody in town would think to implicate John – nobody but Danny, Dutch’s violent drunk of a brother. John's nephew Ben arrives from Chicago on an impromptu trip to his hometown as his uncle struggles to evade Danny's growing suspicions and looming threats. In this masterfully acted tale of small-town intrigue, one man's need for revenge may cost many more their lives.

An old curmudgeon becomes both cat and mouse as a missing man's relatives search for answers.

Cast: John Ashton, Alex Moffat, Jenna Lyng, Ronnie Gene Blevins

Not so much horror as a good old fashioned southern gothic crime thriller. This reminds me a lot of the Coen brothers, so if you like Blood Simple or No Country for Old Men, you will enjoy this.

Good little gem, nice character study, and an interesting film about small time crime.

Subtle and gripping slow burn. An excellent watch.
