review by
Mike Haberfelner

Holton (Chase Williamson) is a young social worker with the ambition to change the world, so when he gets to know Adam (Gavin White), a young and overly introverted boy, he wants to know more. The boy doesn't say much, but he gives Holton some comicbook style drawings that show violence well beyond Adam's age. Holton is concerned enough to discuss this with his more experienced colleague Kar (Matt Mercer), and Kar eventually pays a visit to Adam's place - to find Adam's mother (Lauren Ashley Carter) acting all erratic, but his dad Artik (Jerry G. Angelo) seems to be a reasonable enough man despite his wild looks, and he even invites Kar in for family dinner - to then stick a fork in his neck and torture him to death trying to find out who Adam has been talking to ...

Upon Kar's disappearance, Holton figures his suspicions must have been rooted in fact, and he pays a visit to Adam's place - to walk right into a trap, as it turns out Artik's a serial killer teaching his son the tricks of the trade ...

 

Artik isn't an easy film to sit through, as it's very primal in its shocks and violence, shows a certain mean spirit and doesn't try to over-analyze and that way sanitize things - which is exactly why the film ought to play very well with horror audiences, who enjoy their meals raw every once in a while. That's not to say though that Artik is a mindless blood-and-guts shocker, as the film is rather well put together, both in regards to narrative structure and atmospheric filmmaking, and a solid cast doesn't hurt too much, either. It's just a film that really goes for the jugular - in a rather fascinating way.
