Jerry Smith of Icons of Fright ranks BENEATH as one of Top 13 Horror of 2013!

From Jerry Smith at IconsOfFright.com:

“Larry Fessenden’s BENEATH might have not been a hit with a lot of critics, but I absolutely adored this film. A group of recently graduated students take a canoe across a lake, and are hunted by a giant monster fish. Full of metaphors for how quickly people will turn on each other when they feel like they’re in danger, BENEATH is a fun time, full of some scares, and some really unexpected moments. Easily Fessenden’s best film in my opinion.”

GEP pals’ YOU’RE NEXT and THE SACRAMENT are also mentioned in the list.

BENEATH One of Icons of Fright’s Top 10 Horror of 2013

From Rob G. at IconsOfFright.com:

“It goes without saying that Larry Fessenden is one of my all time favorite filmmakers in the genre. His 2nd film HABIT being in my top 5 vampire movies of ever, so I’m always curious to see what Larry will do next, both as a producer and a director. So I was curious just how his giant killer fish flick for Chiller BENEATH would play out. Larry’s favorite movie is JAWS, so I got the sense that this is the sort of thing he’s always wanted to make. And I think it may be his best, most commercially accessible movie to date. If you’re expecting some kind of gory horror comedy romp like the PIRHANA remake, look elsewhere. This is actually a more straight forward approach, despite the ridiculous nature of a movie with a giant killer fish. The reason it works so well is not the threat outside the boat once these kids get stranded in the middle of the lake, it’s the horror that comes from their actions to each other in order to survive. The tagline says it all, “they’re only friends on the surface.” I was rather surprised by how just about every death sequence played out as they’re all not what you’d expect. In fact, my Killer POV co-host Elric Kane and I both agree that there’s one Hitchcock-ian death that could be the best death sequence in horror of the year. While it already aired on Chiller a few months back, the fine folks at Scream Factory will be giving this a proper Blu-Ray/DVD release in the Spring of 2014!”

The list also gives shout outs to Glass Eye pals’ YOU’RE NEXT, THE BATTERY and THE SACRAMENT.

The Thing(s) In The Lake: Discussing Larry Fessenden’s Latest Off-Beat Horror Opus

PunkeInFilm discusses Larry Fessenden’s BENEATH:
Scout Tafoya: Larry Fessenden’s first film was a Super 8 remake of Spielberg’s Jaws which included a pretty accurate miniature representation of the vessel The Orca. It’s half parody, half-tribute, all proof that Fessenden was someone who got the details right and has his own way of doing things. When he started making horror films they felt real, every inch of them. They were horrific long before the monster showed up because he got the details   Continue Reading »
