Movie Review: THE SONG OF SOLOMON (2017)
THE SONG OF SOLOMON
Written & Directed by Stephen Biro
Distributed by Unearthed Films
If you have seen any of the films from Unearthed Films, you know you are in for a treat with each new release. Unearthed Films releases some of the most extreme horror films out there, and founder Stephen Biro will soon be releasing one of their most extreme films yet, one that he just so happened to write and direct!
The film is called THE SONG OF SOLOMON, and it is a crazy ride from the beginning that never lets up. Here is the plot synopsis from Amazon.com:
Mary witnesses the brutal suicide of her Father. His death unleashes the savage forces of demonic possession in his daughter. The End of Days is upon the world, famine, drought, looting and chaos is ripping the world apart and the Catholic Church is trying to save an innocent soul from the ravages of satanic possession. Wave after wave of holy men are sent to confront the possessed but what is the Holy Church actually doing? The City on Seven Hills is working on the Second Coming of Christ but before He comes back - the Antichrist must rule for seven years. The Song of Solomon's true nature is to unleash an evil the world has been waiting for since the beginning of time.
Now I know what you might be thinking....haven't possession movies kind of run their course? It seems like there was a new possession film all the time the past few years. Well, that might be the case, but I guarantee you there are no possession films of late quite like this one.
I will always consider THE EXORCIST as the greatest possession/exorcism movie of all time, but I will never look at it quite the same after seeing THE SONG OF SOLOMON. I used to think THE EXORCIST was one of the most extreme possession movies, but after seeing Mr. Biro's latest film, it makes THE EXORCIST looks very tame in comparison. That is a bold statement, I know, but I stand behind it. For one thing, the film is much bloodier and gorier than most possession films you have seen. The practical effects are amazing, which is no surprise seeing as how they were done by special effects guru, Marcus Koch and Jerami Cruise. Koch and Cruise produced some gut wrenching effects that had my jaw hitting the floor on several occasions. Secondly, the film's ending is like nothing you have seen before in a possession film. I will not say much about it so not to spoil it, but I was in disbelief.
One last thing, I couldn't do a complete review without mentioning the amazing job actress Jessica Cameron did portraying the possessed girl, Mary. Her performance was outstanding. I can't imagine what she went through filming some of the scenes she did. Well done Jessica!
THE SONG OF SOLOMON is available to pre-order now on both DVD and Blu-Ray. The release date is set for August 14th.
