The Furies (2019)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

8 / 10
I saw this at my local cinema last night and I must say it's enjoyable to see a gory slasher movie for once, they just don't come around all that often. As for the movie itself, what seems like a very simple plot becomes anything but. The Furies surprisingly has a lot more meat to it than just the gory death scenes, of which there are quite a few good ones. The thought of a bunch of women being dumped in a secluded, forest type area and being hunted by a bunch of masked slasher freaks may seem like a run-of-the-mill type of horror movie, but throughout the movie there are a couple of plot developments which really amped up my interest.

If you're purely just looking for some gory kills, there's plenty to behold. Faces get chopped and split, heads explode, limbs are ripped off... I can't see any slasher fan not being satisfied with the kills in the movie. The "Beasts" as referred to in the movie are a bunch of mask-wearing, weapon-wielding, silent but deadly type characters. They don't speak and they use the typical type of weapons that we enjoy associating with slasher movies, like axes, knives, machetes and more. They're all suited up in lifeless type colours, and look like they came out of Mushroomhead's music video for "12 hundred" or something similar, which isn't a bad thing.

With all of that being said, of course there are some flaws. Because there are six maniacs, some don't get as much screen time as you would have liked. And while there are some interesting plot developments throughout, resulting in what feels like a unique movie experience, the ending feels like something we've seen many times before. The women actresses put in capable, yet fairly standard type performances that serve as a constant reminder that you are indeed watching a low budget horror movie. Though to some people, that won't be an issue.

I would consider The Furies to be a heavy dose of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and adding little splashes of movies like Saw and Hostel into the mix. For slasher fans, this is definitely something you should be interested in.
