We all want to be loved and needed.... even if it’s by a ritualistic cult...
So here’s the setup:
Coping with the loss of her sister, Evelyn takes up baking. Her pound cake is a hit thanks to a special ingredient. She experiments by tweaking her recipe to craft the perfect dish only to become frustrated and defeated.
If slow burn ritualistic horror is your thing look no further. The Scarlet Vultures is a beautifully shot dream like short packed with neon lighting, a pulsating score, and visceral violence. This would actually fit perfectly in a screening alongside ‘Starry Eyes’ & ‘The Neon Demon’.
The Scarlet Vultures is a tale of a young woman's journey of self-discovery.
The young woman and her husband are having a gathering for her sister's death. Unfortunately, their relationship has little to no chemistry and feels very fake, but luckily it doesn’t center around their relationship. It picks up as Evelyn (Anne-Carolyne Binette) continues to tell her story to a friendly older woman (Astrida Auza) and we follow Evelyn down her own personal rabbit hole. The music by Mathew J. Rees keeps us spellbound throughout the film while simultaneously amazing us with its beautiful lighting and well-made effects.
It’s an existential ride that does not disappoint and is definitely a tale worth watching.
