BLACK LIZARD TALES: REVIEW
Written by VHS
Black Lizard Tales by James Edward Newton is a dark twisted ride. This is a beautifully shot flick that is bizarre and unsettling. I was a bit stand offish with this film because it’s in black and white, which if I’m being honest, I don’t really like in modern films as I feel it is too hard to pull off. Black Lizard Tales has done an amazing job at showing how a black and white film should be made. The contrast is heavy adding a level of drama to each scene, the camera work is good, and the photographic choices are well made. The sound design adds a great level of stress to each scene that I really appreciated.
Sister Juliana, played by Leona Clarke is a haunting character with a striking gaze. It’s no wonder she was used in all the promo material. Why are Nuns so unsettling? There is no demon faced Nuns in this one and for that I am grateful. Nuns, all be it any traditional religious figures are creepy enough without throwing a bunch of makeup on them. Overall I really enjoyed this one and if you are into dramatic horror this one is for you.
