Dust Devil

Film, 1992

I think I understand what the filmmaker was going for here- a spiritual horror film that uses artfully paced storytelling to ramp up the terror- but it never came together for me. There are some very effective sequences and actors, but more often than not the opposite was true and a lot of the result seems silly. And I don’t know why, but I just get turned off by horror movies that incorporate any kind of real-world, “ethnic” spiritualism in their proceedings. I didn’t work for me in The Serpent And the Rainbow, and it didn’t work for me here. 2.5
