The story might sound familiar; A dysfunctional family trying to cure the dysfunction with a bonding trip back to their roots in Ireland. Then they miss the bus back to civilization and are stuck in alien country. And to make matters worse, this ain't just a quaint little Irish town.
It has secrets to hide. Deadly, vicious secrets.
PLAGUE TOWN gives me hope for the future of good old fashioned horror movies. This is what the 80's were like before everything got caught up in remake Hell. We got Jason first. And Freddy. And Cropsy. And weird things like John Carpenter's The Thing. It has that frisson of pure evil that inundates films like Messiah Of Evil.
In other words, this might be the creepiest thing I have seen in a very, very long time.
That's all you get from me. Any more would ruin it for you. Find the film, watch the film and thank me later.
