I was totally impressed with this movie
It was gripping from the beginning to the end. An original story that captures all the great elements of a film in this genre.

A True Gem For The Horror Genre Nov. 13 2011
By Lord Darkseid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
If I could sum up this movie in one word, it would be "wow". I just finished watching "Bereavement" and I will rate this amongst my top horror movies of all time. From a filming aspect, I have to also agree with other reviewers that the cinematography is fantastic. I was impressed with that right from the start of the film. In terms of horror movies, this is a gem to the genre. I didn't see "Malevolence" so I didn't know what to expect in this prequel. Will there be any survivors? You'll have to watch to find out. The mark of a good horror film is to make the audience care about the characters so that you feel terror if their safety is threatened. This film succeeds with that. This film isn't just about blood and guts all over the floor so if you're getting this because you want some sadistic torture copycat like the "Saw" franchise, you'll be disappointed. Another reviewer wrote that they felt there wasn't enough background story to the serial killer. I disagree with that. The actor portraying the serial killer actually made me feel a little sorry for the character. He was clearly psychotic and out of his mind. He didn't seem to take joy from killing people. It was something he felt he "had" to do. We the audience don't learn about this man's own childhood or how he ended up committing these horrible murders. Its a mystery but that adds to the allure of the film. Another complaint someone had is why did this new girl Allison all of a sudden was the only person in town who found the missing boy in the abandoned rundown shack after 5 years? Thats not so far fetched. If you think about your own town, how many times do you drive past an old house or building and never even give it a second look? Allison was brand new and had a fresh pair of eyes as she looked around her new surroundings. Thats why she was able to pay attention to what others ignored over the years. I will say that I agree that it seemed odd that the killer was killing locals and yet no one seemed to notice or maybe the sheriff's office is just that inadequate. That was really the only flaw of the story. Otherwise, this movie is definitely 4 out of 5 stars. Great job to all that created this film!

WEIRD ENDING Sept. 12 2011
By THE MOVIE GUY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
In rural Pennsylvania a psychopath (Brett Rickaby) kidnaps a young boy and cuts him. The boy has a medical condition where he does not feel pain, which the psycho mistakes for "no fear." In awe the psycho make Martin (Spencer List) his apprentice, picking up women that no one seems to know is missing.

Nearby, Allison (Alexandra Daddario) moves in with her uncle following the death of her parents. She jogs past the abandoned building where the psycho lives and she becomes curious...

The acting was about what you would expect for a "B" horror movie. There is stabbing and blood, but there lacks a certain horror aspect as we don't know most of the victims. I thought I had the movie figured out, but the ending came off as a surprise. The movie sets up for a sequel. Not the worst horror film out there, it just lacks character.

Language and brief corpse nudity.

And A Little Child Shall Lead Them.. Aug. 30 2011
By Dayna Newman/Slasher Diva - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Bereavement is the prequel to Malevolence.
I have been waiting a long time for this to come out and wasn't disappointed.
It was beautifully shot and the lighting was great.The acting was above par ,Alexandra Daddario is not only beautiful but an amazing actress and Michael Biehn has long been a favorite actor of mine since his debut in the 1981 slasher film "The Fan".

It wasn't over the top gory but it was quite bloody and there were a couple of scenes that will leave a gore hound like myself satisfied.
If you saw Malevolence you will know exactly whats going on and even if you didn't see it, it won't take long to figure it out.It has a rich look to it not that cheap or low budget feel .

There were many scenes that might have gone somewhat unnoticed or the importance overlooked that dealt with loss,loss being a huge part of the story in all area's.The last scene with John Savage was a very powerful scene and an important one as well.It's rare that a film is heart tugging yet filled with such real horror as well.The thing that's so scary about this is there really are people that are as mentally unstable as Graham Sutter but you might never know unless you could look into his mind.Bereavement leads us to no other conclusion except 'nurture over nature' when it comes to raising Children.
Splatter flick fans will enjoy it Aug. 22 2011
By Kristi Gilleland - Published on Amazon.com

The cinematography was amazingly good in this movie. I didn't expect such great close ups and wide angle shots from an Indie horror movie. The only exception was the 'in car' shots, which really could have been better and detracted a lot from the camera-work, which was otherwise just excellent.

The above poster pretty much gave a run down of the movie, so I won't repeat the plot aspects, other to say that the story was good, but the fine details got a bit thin in places - for instance - I've never known a long distance runner to wear that many clothes for a long run, and yet forget to leave her sports bra at home. We took to calling our main protagonist "Ms. Bouncy." One of her HIGH-SCHOOL classes, we are led to believe, is talking about psychoanalytic theory. It just happens to pertain to the story, but of course she isn't paying attention. OK, but what makes it a really crappy detail, is besides all that wonkiness, it just doesn't matter anyway. Just little details and cliches like that detract from the movie here and there.

And what about all the missing people that no one ever seems to be looking for? Yep, if I were the killer I'd feel pretty confident in this town too.

The violence and gore deliver very well, and the art crew gives us a creepy, dirty atmosphere that is so realistic that you can almost smell rusty blood. I think one of the weirdest emotions this movie jerked out of me was the intense desire to go wash and sharpen that man's knives. It doesn't rely on music tricks to jerk a scare out of you, but you get a few of those anyway. The score is complimentary to the atmosphere and suspense without getting in the way or being too obvious, at least 95% of the time.

The story didn't stay with any of us. It didn't make us 'think' or speculate or talk about it much after it was over. It was just a good splatter flick, sorta like Hostel meets Chainsaw Massacre meets a bit of Frailty, which is a movie that REALLY delivers on this theme, if it is story and not violence and gore you're in it for. If it is screams and blood you want, you've got the right flick.

A Horror Story with Some Heart to It. Aug. 4 2012
By Carlisle Wheeling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
You come to care for Allison and her family because so much time is spent showing their lives and the way they relate to each other, so what happens leaves you hoping for a happy ending for them. Well, I'm not going to go into all that, so I'll tell you other reasons to see this movie.

Yes, the cinemetography is very good, but what is really the compelling thing about this film is the psycholgical gameplay that goes on between the killer and his young, unwilling appretice, Martin, whom he has snatched from his home. Whoever said we don't know anything about the killer's background is wrong. He doesn't enjoy the killing, which is obvious by his frenzied ravings to the bull's head that is obviously a stand-in for his father. We can deduct that his father had conditioned him until he cracked and now he's carrying on in his place. Since he is a loner, he has snatched the boy after studying him and discovering he cannot physically feel, speak, and maybe not even feel internally. But he must, because he tries to help a few girls escape and he is fearful of his mentor/tormentor. The dynamic between the two of them is compelling.

I liked the character Allison, especially when she takes compassion on Martin a few times and tries to help him. You can't help feeling sorry for him, especially since his mentor is trying to break him down like his own father apparently did. The process with which things take a turn for the worse is compelling to see, and a must if you like movies that involve that mindset.

True, this movie is disturbing and gory, so I must agree with another reviewer here by asking what sort of parents would let their children be involved in a movie like this? I wouldn't, but it's not my call. Other than that, Bereavement is a very well-done movie, and a must-see if you like pictures that also make you feel for the good guys as well as the predators. Warning, though; much like Eden Lake, it will haunt you for quite a while.
