There was quite a few Canadian films at Ramaskrik this year, and Z
was one of those I had quite some expectations to. The film is written and directed by Brandon Christensen, who also did Still/Born
, with extra writing credits to Colin Minihan who also wrote What Keeps You Alive
, both favourites from Ramaskrik a couple of years backand last year respectively. Z
is a fairly traditional, but technically well executed horror. It's at times quite creepy, and both the kid and the adult cast does good performances. Still it never manages to reach the level of either of the above mentioned films, and thus comes down as a bit of a disappointment.
