Trespass Into Terror is a fun little adventure into the backwoods, where the rednecks run rampart, and the reckless acts of carelessness can carry a hefty toll.
I'll just start off by saying, the camera work in this film is phenomenal. So very many different angles and shots that you would not expect from a low budget Indie Film. The main cast does a great job in acting, which is good, but also sort of brings to light some of the supporting casts inexperience. While it may take a little more imagination than normal to watch as a fan, it can also add to the atmosphere of the film itself.
It wasn't only the inexperienced actors that had a rough go though. From Shaun Piccinino leaning around the back seat of a car to make sure his face is always in frame or twisting off a missing beer cap with sound effects, to Jared Rice breaking up "coke" on a mirror with a once folded over dollar bill. At one point I had tears in my eyes watching Rickey Bird Jr. try to navigate through a loosely strung barbed wire fence with a rifle as if he were poking a hornets nest with a boombox playing Slayer at max volume.
Now I know what you're thinking, "Jesus is this guy just going to nit-pick every little tiny thing in a film?" Well, yes and no. See, for myself it was an added layer of fun in watching Trespass Into Terror simply because, I have met some of these actors before. So any time I can give them an elbow to the ribs in a loving fashion, I gotta take it.
The film itself is a great little Indie Flick, with some tricky camera work, a beautiful location, and good direction. The only real criticism of the film is that a couple of the supporting cast sound like they are reading off of que cards, but that just comes with the territory when as an Indie Filmmaker, you are kind of stuck with what you have to work with.
I must say, it is great to see D.T Carney in his natural element. The angry redneck, chasing people through the woods. There is no one that does it better!
