Film 59: Soul Searcher

Neil Oseman very kindly sent me a copy of this so I could take a look and write it up for the book. It's a supernatural fantasy but I think that anything in which people have to battle literal demons counts as horror. If Buffy is horror, Soul Searcher is too.

Hugely impressive and massively ambitious, the film is perhaps too ambitious but nevertheless a magnificent achievement and very entertaining. I've done a short-ish write-up which I may amend tonight after watching the feature-length Making Of.

Special plaudits to my mate Scott Benzie for his terrific orchestral/choral score.
