7. Grace (2009)

GraceWriter and director Paul Solet’s debut film made a big splash at the film festivals it played in early 2009 and was talked up as being the years breakout hit, and then nothing.

The film barely got a release and sneaked on to DVD late in 09, in the UK the film hasn’t even been released yet and languishes in obscurity. It’s far from a perfect film but Solet’s tale of a baby that craves blood instead of milk has a sense of creeping dread and atmosphere that recalls Lynch’s best work.

Most horror films are content to give you a mildly disconcerting feeling but this film sets out to challenge and provoke and make you feel uncomfortable. Ultimately it boils down to a tale of bereavement and what we do when in this state to make ourselves feel something positive again. The film has a sub-plot about a bereaved mother/grandmother that is perhaps too much and too difficult for most audiences to let into their brains.
