‘Bornless Ones’ (review)

Produced by Devin Goodsell, Mariietta Volynska
Written and Directed by Alexander Babaev
Starring Margaret Judson, Devin Goodsell,
Michael Johnston, Mark Furze, Bobby T

 

When a group of friends including Emily and her brother Zack, who suffers from Cerebral Palsy, head to a secluded cabin for a getaway they soon realize that the cabin holds a dark secret.

As strange things turn up around the house, Zach seems to be mysteriously mobile and no longer showing the outward signs of Cerebral Palsy.

As events escalate the friends begin turning on each other while Emily figures out the house’s dark past.

Bornless Ones is an odd duck of a film and not the easiest to review, it is kind of a bad jumbled mess but I had a blast watching it.

The story is definitely a mish mash of elements from Evil Dead and numerous possession films while most of the acting and character choices are nonsensical and unbelievable.

The good aspects of Bornless Ones definitely fall within the aesthetic range. The cinematography and art direction lend a great creepy atmosphere to the film’s woodland setting.

Although the true saving grace for Bornless Ones are the film’s practical gore effects. Effects artist Jerami Cruise (Tales Of Halloween and the August Underground Trilogy) brings some truly disgusting visuals to the films killings, which is certainly the element that saves Bornless Ones.  Well worth a watch.

 

Bornless Ones arrives in theaters and VOD today
