Press Release and Articles


Overall I was pleased with the film. I was very surprised by the ending. I thought it might be a bit predictable, but it wasn’t.

Starting out as a typical teen slasher, if a very atmospheric one with great sets/locations, The Impaler gains in depth the longer it runs, playing a very original variation on the Dracula-theme by highlighting the Satanist rather than the vampiric aspects of the story. Now add to that plenty of suspense, shocks and violence and a general sense of creepiness, and you’ve got yourself a pretty good genre movie.

Recommended. Read ful review here http://www.searchmytrash.com/movies/impaler(2013).shtml

Talliesin meets the Vampires

The film itself is a variant of Ten Little Indians but it uses the seven deadly sins as a template. I actually thought it had a definite style about it, especially around the use of the veiled Elisabeta. The acting was at a level needed and the fact that most of the friends came across as self-absorbed fit into the storyline well. The castle setting was nicely atmospheric.
