Horror and underground films have been slumped into predictable categories and stereotypes have been meagrely applied. We have slashers, gore movies, splatter, thrillers, exploitation, cannibal films, zombie films, women in prison, exploitation, Ozploitation, pinky violence, rape/revenge, post-apocalyptic and the list goes on and on. Originality seems to be the number one downfall of most films today; that one factor that makes a movie stick out amongst the hordes of other films being produced. A lot of prolific Italian horror directors never seemed to have that battle with being original and aimed for the cash, such as the late Lucio Fulci, with the George A. Romero lifted Zombie, or Luigi Cozzi with his Alien rip off Contamination. These directors, especially Fulci, made success for themselves by creating gory knock-offs and strangely enough developed their own originality in doing just this. Fulci's Zombie is a cult renowned classic and worshiped by many horror buffs around the world.

Flowers director, Phil Stevens, has chosen to take his own path -- the road less traveled with
Flowers. A total surreal fist-fuck to the genre, changing the game in which we believe how underground cinema should be made. In doing this, you’re rolling the dice and taking a huge gamble, and for Flowers, this has paid off.Flowers has gained an instant cult status which will only continue with age. It has set the underground ablaze with a buzz, making genre fans wanting to see it and people are talking about it. With most movies that try to break the mold, there will always be people who love it and people who hate it. Die-hards will always want their traditional film formulas, whilst others are exhausted with them and are seeking fresh new blood to feed on.


The one big stand out for
Flowers is the fact it is completely devoid of any dialogue, but very big on crisp sounds and a brooding, dark but elegant musical score. The score by Mark Kueffner and additional music by Immundus and David Jackson, really give it a deep rich undertone and takes it to that next level of atmospheric terror. The set for the movie by Anastasia Blue, Colette Kenny McKenna, Makaria Tsapatoris and director Stevens, which, I understand was basically a house built inside of a house, is brilliant and serves as possibly an entire main character/entity within itself. I've read that the set was built in director/writer Phil Stevens own house, which should have made for some interesting daily life routines! The actresses (Colette Kenny McKenna,Krystie Fitch, Anastasia Blue, Tanya Erin Paoli, Kara A. Christiansen and Makaria Tsapatoris) I understand, devoted a lot of their own free time to the project and I believe they conveyed everything that was expected of them in the mood department; the emotion was strong, something that's not easy to do when you’re not working with dialogue. I can see it being a whole different beast entirely. Special mention must also be given to the sound man Ronnie Sortor, as there is no dialogue in this and it solely relies on different sounds and noises to carry it through.

Back to the set of the film, the bowels of that dark and twisted house. All the rooms, crevices and crawlspaces that are explored, interrupted and jarred by the static and snow of a TV splicing the scenes together. There is some sick imagery in
Flowers. The killer is every bit of a grotesque monstrosity, which has devastated and laid down a path of human destruction on these less than innocent girl’s souls, but does one deserve such cruelty for following the left hand path? I personally have a couple of favorite scenes, the best one for me being the dining room set where one of the girls begins binging on food before making a horrible discovery of what she believes is there to what is actually reality. The bathroom scenario is effective as well, which made me cringe a bit and another scene involving a reverse evisceration was highly engaging. 

Phil Stevens’ work seems to revolve highly around storyboard art conceptualizations and in Flowers you can see that with its nightmarish imagery. The dead black blood and worm rot just oozes with glee here, through the many cracks in this house of horrors and it’s a beautiful thing to witness! Pick up Flowers today from Phil Stevens himself, by contacting him on Facebook, or from Unearthed Films and look out for Stevens’ new opus Lung II available now. I'd like to thank Mr. Stevens for this opportunity to be a witness to his great work!
