Faces tells an eerie tale of a loner, Frank, on the fringe of society struggling to make ends meet and keep his life from falling apart. As we follow Frank’s story, the tension builds to an unrelenting and thundering crescendo that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat for the duration.
Frank isn’t exactly a model citizen. Way behind on rent, unable to hold down a job or get a girlfriend, and wrestling with some demon’s of a checkered past, his outlook isn’t very positive. Solution? Get drunk as fuck!
Finally, something we at HH can get behind!
A regular at the local bar, the other patrons begin to paint a story about Frank that isn’t exactly…favorable, something confirmed pretty quickly by Charlie, another regular drunk, who follows Frank home one night. Its this encounter with Charlie that sparks a series of events that RAPIDLY spiral out of control
Faces is a breath of fresh air. After so long, its nice to see some serious, thought our truly independent horror. With a budget of around $1000, director Tom Ryan was able to put together a quality film with an incredibly original concept and some wonderful performances.
Keeping in mind that this is seriously indie horror, its absolutely worth a watch, and I’m very excited to see what Tom Ryan gets up to in the future.
