Macabre...ish Horror Review: Compound Fracture
Compound Fracture, 2013/ 1 hr 30 min
Family tragedies, secrets and an unforgivable past set the stage for a family haunting.
An estranged son, Michael, reconnects with his father to discover his Dad (Muse Watson) losing his mind. But that’s not all, he’s also quirkier than he used to be and more paranoid. Michael (Tyler Mane), his fiance, Juliette (Renae Geerlings) and nephew, Brandon (Alex Saxon) find out too late what’s going on.
Dad isn’t just crazy though, he’s been preparing a very long time to protect his family, in life and death. They realize what was meant to protect them also became a curse and now they have to figure out how to reverse it.
Meanwhile, people will get hurt and some will die.
I mistakenly thought this movie moved slowly to the point then saved the best for last. It did not, it was building to the point and when it got there, it was good. It gets really violent and the physical effects are gory and dramatic. The story is somewhat convoluted but good. If you can stick with it, you’ll see what I mean. Also Renae Geerlings also is a producer and writer in this film.
