review by
Mike Haberfelner

Patricia (Peggy Schott) was an artist who has been fighting with drug problems all her life - until she's found dead in her studio, and even though she was believed to be clean of late, everybody's assuming an overdose. Patricia's daughter Moon (Elle LaMont) has left mother years ago since she couldn't handle her drug issues anymore, but she comes back for her wake - to reunite with her teenaged brother River (Dalton E. Gray) who has never forgiven her for leaving him behind, as he was to young to move out on his own back when. He has since turned into a bit of a trouble child, also egged on by his girlfriend, bad girl Bethany (Violett Beane). Plus, Moon's former boyfriend Tyler (Johnny Walter), who's now a police officer, hasn't completely given up on her, which at first doesn't agree to her too well.

Thing is, Patricia didn't die from drugs at all. Actually, her death has to do with a centuries old chain once used to chain up a Native American medicine man who has cursed it since. And when Patricia stole the chain, her fate was sealed. Problem is, the chain's still around, and it seems to draw everybody around to it, so soon, links of it land in Moon's handbag, while Bethany makes friendship trinkets out of them for herself, River, and their friends Chrissie (Kaylee King) and Hector (Noé de la Garza) - which calls a couple of white-masked killers, one male, one female, onto the scene nas well as opening a gateway to a nightmare dimension ...

 

Basically, Flay is of course a slasher movie, with all the elements in place, from the high school setting to the insubordinate teens, the maked killers to the gruesome and inventive murders. But what's nice (and unusual) about Flay is it also spends time with its characters, treats them like more than mere cannon fodder (to the point where it's impossible to guess who dies, who survives), gives them character arcs and conflict that would also work outside a slasher framework. And that said, the film's still tense and suspenseful and violent in all the right places, to make this one cool genre entertainment.
