The Poughkeepsie Tapes

Post by KrimsonKing on Mon Oct 08, 2012 7:04 am

I was given a copy of something called The Poughkeepsie Tapes over the weekend. Never having heard anything about it, I had a look on the internet, saw the trailer and knew that this was strong meat indeed.

I've just finished watching it and it must be one of the most unsettling viewing experiences I've ever had. I don't want to talk too much about it as, if you've not seen it, I want you to be as surprised as I was. I'll only say that I can't recommend it highly enough. Releasedtheatrically in 2005 it has yet to be released on DVD, so don't go looking for it at your local store; you'll have to search elsewhere (I was given it after walking offstage after a gig - most singers get lingerie, I get scary movies!).

Yeah, this one was pretty unnerving.

Give me a rating as regards to gore. I'm not super into gore.

I don't "do" ratings but I will say that it's largely left to your imagination. This is a film for adults, it's not Saw nor is it Hostel (although I quite like Hostel to be honest) so the intensity of the subject matter is what matters here, not the gore content.

You might not thank me once you've watched it! I'm still trying to shake off the after-effects (which I suppose is no bad thing; a horror film that doesn't leave an impression is a poor film indeed, I think).
