Fantasia 2020: “For the Sake of Vicious”


Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

The best thing about the horror genre is that it continues sticking to its core. Since it aims to keep this genre lovers’ expectations high, it must offer something relentlessly terrifying for the viewers to enjoy thoroughly. I am quite sure I am not one of them. But if you like seeing smashing heads, pieces of brain flying left and right, then keep scrolling down to learn more.

Screenplay by Reese Eveneshen and directed by Gabriel Carrer and Reese Eveneshen, “For the Sake of Vicious” is set on Halloween night. Romina (Lora Burke) is a hardworking nurse who has the right qualities to be considered as a kind being. After another shift, she is ready to have a good night with her son. But once she enters the home (luckily, her son was at his nanny’s place), she finds herself attacked by an intruder, Chris (Nick Smyth). Unhinged and angry, all that he wants is justice for what had been done years ago to his daughter, as a result of which he brings a heavily injured man into her house to help keep him alive. However, what Chris and Romina did not know is that the three of them will have to work together to make through the night, fighting against individuals that will stop at nothing to accomplish their diabolic plan.

The film contains enough scenes for some of you to keep your eyes closed throughout. Especially if you decide to watch it while you are having a meal which, let me be clear, is a very bad idea. As for the storyline, it is quite simple to follow (not to reveal much). But shortly after, you won’t care much about who is doing what, as each scene will be filled with bloodshed to be disgusted about. But if you are a horror film lover with a liking for extreme killing, you should certainly make it a point to watch this film, as you see a bunch of adults trying to kill each other using anything they can as a weapon.
