Watch The Undying - Alternative Versions.
Every year, around this time, a film festival called Horrorthon, run by
and synonymous with Ed King, a filmmaker himself (check him out here on
IMDb), takes place in the Irish Film Institute in Dublin, showing the
best old and new films in the
horror/fantasy/whatever-tickles-Ed's-fancy genre. This year's lineup
included the world premiere of 'The Undying', a film which, while not
wildly revolutionary, manages to provide an interesting and highly
watchable take on the traditions of the haunted house/possession film.
The film is essentially a very classical take on the ghost story.
Director Steven Peros, a talented writer whose work I'm somewhat
familiar with, though this was the first directorial effort of his I'd
seen, and with whom I had the pleasure of chatting over the course of
the festival, freely acknowledged the influence of films such as 'The
Changeling' and Robert Wise's 'The Haunting' on his film, and 'The
Undying' has a visual and narrative aesthetic comparable to those and
other, more slow-burning films. What makes this film that much more
interesting is the incorporation of a romantic element, something that
may turn people off with the publicity around films such as 'Twilight'
and the success on television of 'True Blood', but in a way is possibly
more of an updated reversal of Joseph L. Mankiewicz's 'The Ghost And
Robin Weigert (unrecognisable from her appearances in 'Deadwood' and
'Synecdoche, New York' - turns out she's really cute!) gives a brave
and hugely committed performance as the bereft doctor, mourning the
death of her fiancée, who falls for a ghost she is told also lost the
love of his life, and who will go to extreme lengths to reincorporate
him. Unfortunately, her choice of a body for him turns out to be
ill-advised, as elements of the personality of the body's former owner
rise to the fore, resulting in violence and tragedy.
The director wisely stays away from the potential gore element so
prevalent in horror today and instead focuses on building character,
drawing the viewer into the well-constructed story, and actually
building a sense of dread, or at least wariness that our heroine may
not have made the best choices as the film progresses. At the very
least, you actually care enough for her to worry about her. Some may
say that this is actually a pacing problem, but I felt it was
fascinating and refreshing to see a film of this genre done in a more
refined style after years of the blood'n'guts torture porn approach, to
see a filmmaker actually use the tools of cinema to tell a story rather
than rely on 'EWW!' or 'BOO!'.
If I had to make a criticism, I would say that the score is overly
intrusive, I do think that silence can be just as, if not more,
effective in a film such as this (surely everyone knows this about
horror films), and unfortunately, the almost constant musical cues did
take me out of the film for various reasons, perhaps because they were
too soap-operatic at times, perhaps because there was just no need for
them at others, but this is probably just me being picky.
In the Q&A afterwords, the director stated that he had an idea for a
film set for a large part in Ireland (yes, we gave him hell about not
making a shamrocks 'n' shillelaghs film), if he could find a producer.
Having seen this film, and noticed him talking to the producer of
'Once' in the bar afterwards, I look forward to what Mr. Peros does
