** 1/2 out of ****
I always enjoy a good splatter flick and while I wouldn't necessarily call
The Guardian a "good" film, it sure as hell is an entertaining one. The
plot's pretty silly, with Jenny Seagrove as Camilla, a newly hired caretaker
of a young couple's (Dwier Brown and Cary Lowell) infant son. Camilla
appears to be the perfect nanny, sweet and loving, but actually, she's a
Druid who needs the baby to prolong her immortal life, or something to that
effect (the movie really didn't explain too much, and if you think I gave
anything away by mentioning her as a Druid, the opening subtitles already
state that info). She's also got a weird relationship with a big tree in the
The film's got a lot of stupidity here and there, especially the young
couple, who don't bother checking Camilla's references before hiring her, or
the fact that this caretaker happens to be able to move around so many
residences freely without too much suspicion (okay, for a while, at least).
And considering the fact Camilla's a Druid, where'd she get this tree? This
is set in L.A., not Europe. As I said before, not much is answered, and I
guess I should be grateful because I can't imagine any answers that wouldn't
delve the material into further silliness.
But I credit director William Friedkin for handling all this with a straight
face. Some of this stuff (particularly the scenes with the tree) could have
been played as camp, but I'm rather glad Friedkin plays this seriously and,
as he did with The Exorcist, he manages to craft some truly suspenseful and
frightening moments. Still, the film does slide into scenes that are too
silly to be taken very seriously; you'll know what I mean when you see the
chainsaw scene near the end of the movie.
Unlike The Exorcist, he shows no restraint with violence, preferring to give
us several enjoyably gory death scenes and a LOT of blood spattering
everywhere. There's also a decent amount of nudity present, courtesy of the
rather lovely Jenny Seagrove. She's not quite as effective a horror
villainess as, say, Mathilda May in Lifeforce, but gets the job done. Dwier
Brown and Cary Lowell are okay, a little flat during some scenes and
certainly not aided by a script that makes them act like idiots, but are
convincing enough as caring and concerned parents.
Surprisingly very little music is used, with Friedkin trying to use the
sounds of the wind and other such natural elements to create goosebumps.
It's a good attempt, and while it works during two very lengthy, suspenseful
sequences, he's still no M. Night Shyamalan. Considering the rather negative
critical response The Guardian received, it's easy to see why Friedkin
hasn't made a genre film since. But I enjoyed almost every minute of it
would recommend it to horror fans seeking a quick-paced, gory thriller.
