REBORN

Cert 15 Stars 2

Mortuaries, murder and moviemaking feature heavily in this modern day US revenge horror throwback to the age of video nasties, which sees a young woman with electric psychic powers escapes captivity and tries to find her failing actress mother.

Welshman Julian Richards directs with this homage with love and clear understanding of the genre, crafting an effective homage to the films of his youth with a very knowing style, and as well as employing 1980’s style graphics, physical effects and a cheesy synth title song, he gives casts¬†Barbara Crampton, star of 1980’s gory cult classic, Re-Animator.
