I wasn’t a huge fan of director Anthony DiBlasi’s “Dread”, due in part, I think, to my growing distaste for torture horror. It’s easy, it’s simple, it’s unimaginative — unless you have a completely original approach to the same old well-worn formula, I honestly don’t want to watch your movie. Sorry about that. However, DiBlasi’s upcoming chiller, “Cassadaga” attempts to blend supernatural elements into the aforementioned subgenre, resulting in a film that, despite my initial misgivings, actually doesn’t look half bad. Then again, I thought “Dread” looked pretty swift when the trailer first debuted, and we all know how well that turned out. I’m assuming, of course, that you hated the flick as much as I did. If you’re one of the few who actually found it to be enjoyable, then, please, ignore the second half of this poorly-written passage and proceed forward. My bad.
“Cassadaga” has a synopsis, which you can read below:
Devastated by the death of her younger sister, Lily Morel seeks solace at the spiritualist community of Cassadaga. But instead of finding closure, she contacts something else – the vengeful ghost of a murdered young woman. With her life crumbling all-around her, Lily races to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding the woman’s death – a task that will bring her face-to-face with a sadistic serial killer known only as “Geppetto”.
The trailer resides below.
