Bereavement Movie Review

16 December, 2010

moviePoster

‘Bereavement’ is actually a prelude to the movie, ‘Malevolence’, which got released in the year 2004. The story of ‘Malevolence’ was about a psychic murderer, called Graham Sutter. It also had the part where there was an abduction and regular torment, which was inflicted on Martin Bristol by Graham.

The film ‘Bereavement’ is slated to release on the February 18, 2011 and is directed by Stevan Mena, who was also the director of the prelude. Stevan Mena is also the screenwriter. The cast of the movie includes Alexandra Daddario, Michael Biehn, Nolan Gerard Funk, John Savage and Brett Rickaby. The movie is a scary thriller and is not meant to be watched by small kids.

The movie, ‘Bereavement’ takes its viewers way back to 1989, when Martin Bristoll, a six year old kid was abducted, from his garden swing, in Minersville, Pennsylvania. Graham Sutter, who was a psychotic loner, imprisoned Martin on his dilapidated pig farm. He forced Martin to an eyewitness and take part in appalling horrors. Graham used to choose his victims, randomly and used to gruesomely torture them to death. The terrifying and painful screams of his victims were obscured by the loud sounds of the rural countryside. Martin remained captive for almost five years and his whereabouts continued to be a mystery. Even though Martin’s family members extensively searched for him, but they failed to trace him. However, then slowly the mystery tends to unfold when Allison Miller, a 17-year-old teenager came to Minersville to stay with her Uncle, Jonathan. While she was investigating her new setting, Allison started to discover strange things in and around the ramshackle farmhouse situated down the highway. Her inquisitiveness stirs up a hornet’s nest of gloom and evil, which when ripped open, cannot be closed by any means.

‘Bereavement’ tends to be one of the best horror movies, made till date. It has almost set a new standard for the psycho genre movies.  The key feature that makes this movie different from others of the same genre is its strong character development. This is a must watch movie for all, except for the little ones.

On the other hand, a dubious hero, known as Arthur, who has an urgent task to accomplish, prior to the onset of Christmas morning.

He is actually the successor to the Santa throne and an incredibly cool and proficient man. Steve has provided the North Pole with military-style accuracy and ultra-modern expertise. The character of Santa has been beautifully enacted by Broadbent, who is actually in command over the North Pole. However, now, he is just a symbolic head without any real powers, since the entire operation has gone beyond his control.

‘Arthur Christmas’ is a perfect Christmas movie, which can be thoroughly enjoyed by the entire family. It is extremely comical in nature, and unfolds a longstanding hidden secret.
