Poster - Title Card rating: notes: A true testament to that fact that you don't need a huge budget to make compelling cinema. A family of three (one daughter was away at school) craft a compelling tale of ghostly grief and revenge that's far better other movies with 10 times the budget. Recommended. And if you think the family affair angle is hype, stick around for the mind-blowingly brief credits.

In addition to crafting a story that, while not entirely unfamiliar, has enough perverse twists to feel fresh, the Adamses, while working with a low budget, practically revel in the mechanics of moviemaking. Individual shots play with focus and lighting in ways that yield substantial horror-movie bang, and their concoction of settings that create a surreal contrast to the rural locations is always satisfyingly crafty. One sometimes thinks of the gonzo stylings of another horror indie, 1979's Phantasm. In its own way, The Deeper You Dig dares to get almost as unhinged as that picture. It's a trip.
