Reviews

When was the last time a movie got under your skin? Really unnerved you to the point that afterwards, you had to walk around the block or hug your dog? That’s the feeling that Lawrie Brewster’s Lord of Tears left me with. The Scottish film blends the classic Hammer sensibilities with strong storytelling and an atmosphere of thick dread not easily shaken off after it’s over.
Lord of Tears is a truly haunting work and one that marks Brewster and co as filmmakers to keep an eye out for. With its striking imagery, spooky Gaelic- gothic atmosphere, intriguing folklore and creepy-as-hell antagonist, it’s a rich and full-blooded ghost story perfect for the dark winter nights ahead.
