Movie Review: UNHALLOWED BOND

Unhallowed Bond Poster

UNHALLOWED BOND is an  indie paranormal thriller that follows three friends; Andie, Candace and Julie who were looking for a night of fun when they decided to stay in a supposed haunted house. Several days later Candace finds herself in the midst of strange happenings. When she calls on Andie for help, it’s up to her to seek the answers.

What happens is, Candace goes through some weird changes almost like she’s possessed after that night in the house. She calls on Andie to come over to visit where she shares what has begun to happen to her which also leads to a shocking discovery for Andie. Really strange and unexplainable things are happening after the friend’s little over night stay in that haunted house.

As the movie plays out, Andie begins to do a little investigating where she learns some deep dark secrets about a certain former neighbor of Candace’s. She talks to a few people and begins to put two and two together and gets so deep in this uncomfortable situation that she is now changed forever as she takes one step too far into this dark haunting mystery.

Unhallowed Bond is directed by Shane Cole who delivered one of my favorite indie slashers  a little over a year ago with Mutilation Man. Unhallowed Bond heads in a completely different direction from Cole’s previous slasher outing. This slow burn paranormal thriller relies more on its story and main character Andie, played perfectly by Megan Lynn than anything else. Don’t expect a lot of blood and gore going in to this one because there isn’t much. Instead, the movie relies more on old school tricks for its scares, like doors slamming, lights flickering, creepy, menacing footsteps and more. All of these help make this indie thriller a really enjoyable watch.

The acting in the movie was really great. Kathy Sue Holtorf, Sabrina Carmichael, Robert Dough, Dan Sutter, Kk Ryder, Krista Reese and Elisa Downing round out this impressive cast.

One of the biggest flaws in indie film is still the picture quality and  problems with the sound but this movie comes through crisp and clear on both ends. Cole not only knows how to capture and deliver the right elements with his camera but he has proven that he’s a great story teller. Hollyweird take note!

Bottom line is, Unhallowed Bond is Cole’s best work to date. This movie plays as well as Paranormal Activity, The Possession or any other recent big studio release. This haunting indie thriller is a must see!
