Jack Goes Home’ starring Lin Shaye of Insidious fame and Rory Culkin of Culkin family fame and genre fame as Charlie on Wes Craven’s SCRE4M, is nothing short of a cinematic masterpiece. Following the story of a 20’s-30’s man named Jack (Culkin) called home after a tragic fatal accident involving his parents, the story progressed to reveal Jack’s family secrets, one even involving a heartless murder.
Performances particularly by Culkin and Daviegh Chase were particularly enjoyed by this reviewer, as their on-screen chemistry truly struck as believable and stand-out. Lin Shaye, as well delivering a stand-out performance, stepped away from her dotting grandmother-type character, fans of the horror genre are particularly familiar with (she portrays Elise for the Insidious franchise) and embodied the cold parent that troubled and continued to terouble Jack’s psyche, in-turn delivering a performance that was shock-worthy and believable.
From the directing hand of A Nightmare On Elm Street mogul Thomas Dekker, Jack Goes Home PROVED to be, and I’ll say it again, a cinematic masterpiece [despite a rather graphic and stomach-turning past for Jack]. Written by Dekker, starring Culkin, Shaye and Chase alongside Nikki Reed, Britt Robertson and Louis Hunter, the flick hits US theaters and VOD on October 14th
