"Found." is a stunning, must-see addition to the horror genre.

I waited two years to watch this film, having avidly followed its production and debut on Facebook. I finally received my copy in the mail and it was with some trepidation that I put the DVD into the player. I already had a good idea of what I was in for, so I curled under a blanket and kept my finger on the pause button so that I could stop if I got too overwhelmed. Like Marty riveted by "Headless," however, I found I couldn't look away until the last credits had rolled.

Blood, horror, and decapitation? Oh yes. This film is dripping with truly realistic, grisly effects imagined by a creatively twisted mind. Framing the gory details is a story fueled by socially-charged issues which commonly drive violence in our everyday lives. Racism, bullying, gender identity, sexuality, and family dynamics all play a role in the unfolding events. Through Marty's eyes, we get glimpses into a deeply troubled family whose facade of "normalcy" is swiftly unraveling. Along with Marty we try to understand how such a perfect family has something so rotten at its heart--but the answers don't come easily.

Although a story driven by such serious social themes could run the risk of becoming preachy, Marty's perspective keeps the tone human and grounded. The film doesn't evaluate the issues on behalf of the viewer--the viewer is left to draw his or her own conclusions about what constitutes "horror" and what creates a killer. This aspect of the storytelling may be uncomfortable for those who want the line between good and evil defined with more clarity; but, for me, it's the unsettled questions that have kept this movie in my mind for days after viewing (and will bring me back to watch it again and again).

Technical issues: You may find that some of the character dialogue is a bit muffled. It varies from scene to scene; but didn't interfere with my overall enjoyment of the movie.

Acting: For the most part the actors seemed well suited to their roles, with Shane Beasley (the "Headless" killer) and Gavin Brown (Marty) standing out as the most convincing in my mind. Ethan Philbeck (Steve) and Phyllis Munro (Mom) also put in very strong performances.

Filming: Locations were clearly chosen with great care and attention to detail. Many of the outdoor scenes are beautifully captured, especially the scenes of Marty walking through an overgrown field to the local junkyard. Juxtaposed with scenes of unflinching cruelty and violence, the beauty becomes all the more eerie.

Music: The score, which ranges from heavy metal to instrumental, sets the tone flawlessly.

Overall: On so many levels, this movie is a stunning addition to the horror genre. To everyone involved with making this film: well done. You created a story that I'm not going to get out of my head any time soon.

My Review Of "Found" 2012

"found." is Scott Schirmer's dark caveat to what could arguably be the true meaning of horror starring Gavin Brown, Ethan Philbeck, Phyllis Munro, Louie Lawless and Alex Kogin. The film follows a young boy who's life is abruptly altered when he discovers his older brother is a budding serial killer. The story delves deep into the nuances of family dynamic like nothing I have ever seen before. Marty is a boy transitioning into his own only to have to deal with bullying, loss of familiarity and the complete and utterly disturbing degradation of family stability. "found." is so much more than a horror story, it is a visual ode to a very deep and personal problem lying unmentioned, ignored or unnoticed within our world of paved pathways that guide us along our daily destinations dotted by manicured lawns and cookie-cutter homes. That problem which Schirmer brutally forces us to notice is the complete and utter break down of family cohesion. That one aspect of life that for many of us is an assumed respite, a place of safety and comfort-home, viciously ripped away to expose a darkness that in this film is unequivocally the birth of evil.

The story plays with you completely from the very beginning. It grabs at your emotional center and squeezes slowly but firmly all the while pushing you to the very edge of tense anguish as felt through the eyes and mind of a child. "found" has done something that so few movies are capable of, it made me reevaluate how I define horror. The characters are so modest and honest that you relate to them in a truly gripping way. It exposes the twisted nature of misguided youth forced to face life with very few answers and nearly absent representation. Then simultaneously placing you head first into racism and bullying. But wait, as if that wasn't enough to make this well defined nightmare affective there is an added element that forces you as a viewer to test your limit of what is acceptable horror. It is a question that people have argued for quite some time- are horror films warping young people? This is truly the first time that I have seen that subject matter carefully and poignantly dealt with in the horror industry in such an honest manner while taking you into some of the most sickest and twisted areas of shock/horror cinema.

In my opinion this is truly a masterful tale of terror that carries a deeper message that needs to be addressed, and manages to do so in a fresh and exciting way. It carries all the emotion of surrealistic art film, complete brutality and gore of a horror film in the most systematically harmonious ways imaginable. There is an element of truth that this story pulsates from that creates an atmosphere so haunting and tragic. The film is held together by a chilling soundtrack that allows the story with all it's components to flow seamlessly. Quite frankly I hope more people than just the horror community experiences this film because although the visuals are graphic the heart of the drama is one that needs to be exposed because the true nightmare of this film is the fact that it could very well be happening in your neighborhood or more disturbingly in your very home. I recommend that everyone who comes across this film-watch it! It is just that powerful. A truly terrifying look into the mouth of madness is what you get with "found."

Half Coming of Age Film/ Half Horror Movie

Found is a refreshing intelligently written horror movie with a prominent coming of age theme.

There is no delay in finding out that Marty's older brother is a serial killer. I quickly identified with the 12 year old's obsession with finding his family members' hidden secrets, like his mom's love notes from an ex-boyfriend, his dad's typical porn stash, and of course, his brother's non-typical rotating selection of heads in the closet.

The acting was incredible, and I often felt like I was intruding on private affairs as opposed to just watching a movie. Gavin Brown does an excellent job as Marty. He often provides narration through the movie, which felt more genuine than most voice-overs, with real emotion and no over-acting.

Most of the movie really is about the relationship between the two brothers, and the horror elements are provided by the movies within the movie. Of note is the one called "Headless," which provides the older brother, Steve, with gruesome inspiration. Until the climax of Found, "Headless" is the part that will have you squirming in your seat.

And with the level of detail put into the special effects, you will squirm. The attention put into making everything realistic is evident. Right after seeing the premier, everyone was talking about particular scenes where the special effects really transmitted the feeling to the audience.

This is a story about the dynamic between older and younger brother, and how it changes as they get older, all wrapped up in a horror movie shell. The balance of drama, suspense, horror, and comedy, is perfect. It's the type of movie you'll find yourself still thinking about the next day.
