It is fittingly surreal, without tumbling into absurdity.
This seems the way to go for independent film makers these days, and I must say it works well, as pledgers get to see the finished film before any cinema release and plus get some cool collectors items into the bargain, like T-Shirts, soundtrack CD's as part of a double pack combi (my own particular purchase) and downloads of production booklets, chronicling the day to day making of the film and interviews/ photographs and storyboards. Now I'm not big on ghost films but ‘Lord of Tears’ directed by Lawrie Brewster is a slow burn character driven piece with atmosphere so thick you could suffocate a child to Moloch. Lawrie Brewster and Sarah Daly (the writer) definitely show talent and growth potential, but "Lord of Tears" is overall unmemorable and weak. It generates genuine dread and shivers without the torture porn so prevalent lately. Holy cow, what a cringefest.
Just leave us a message here and we will work on getting you verified. The Lord of Tears is a slow burn psychological horror set in Scotland. The chemistry between the 2 main characters is painfully nonexistent, there are some genuinely cringe-worthy exchanges. This 10-digit number is your confirmation number. Unravelling a childhood mystery, James Findlay (Euan Douglas) encounters the Owl man (David Schofield), an ancient, knowing, and rather decadent apparition. Well worth watching but be warned - if you're watching it alone you might feel a cold hand on your shoulder before it's over! Okay, go ahead, hit the non-useful button if you must.
An allegedly "lovecraftian", slow burning creepy, Gothic horror movie?
David Schofield's sinister voice is underused. This movie is actually painful to watch. Brewster creates some great scenes of intense atmosphere and in one such scene, I even had goose bumps and chills running up and down my spine. Regal
If you love ghost stories, this is right up your alley. The acting performance of Euan Douglas is quite pitiable and the beautiful Alexandra Hulme doesn't convince either. That sounds great! Its a real shame as I love this type of film, I hope the team involved put it behind them and learn from it.
I had heard of the plans to make this film, through Sarah Daly (singer/songwriter of Metaphorest fame) and Lawrie Brewster, her partner in all things and their need for pledgers to help fund it. The previous reviews got me thinking, 'It can't be that good' You feel for them. With minimal gore but clever twists which deliver those OMG moments so beloved of dodgy heart patients such as myself. And now it is time for this Gothic and poetic horror movie to reach its anticipating audience and reviewers. I have a large collection of DVDs etc, but this stands out from the rest and it's clear a lot of thought and love has went into this film. I couldn't in good conscience rate it as low as possible because there are three things, a star for each, that to me must be commended: 1) The location and cinematography that takes place outdoors is fantastic. 20 min later I'm twisting in pain, and not in a good way (if there's such thing). The story's execution, although interesting on paper, really doesn't do him or the lead actress any favours.

I loved this film for so many reasons...the atmosphere it created the vision of the director and the way he visualized it on film...the well written story and the choice of locations...Alexandra Hulme was brilliantly cast and gave a fantastic performance throughout...as a fan of soundtrack in films the music helped create the eerie atmosphere and intensified the suspense...I knew nothing about this film before watching it as I like and it kept me interested entertained and guessing all the way through...something new and different that I would describe as being like an episode of the 'tales of the unexpected' directed by Jan Svankmajer.
Why was he cast? Imbued with creepiness from the opening, this is a fabulous ride into psychological horror - I enjoyed it more than I thought I would! It resides in my top ten horror films.
The timid school teacher James Findlay has been plagued by visions of this creature ever since his childhood, but now he can confront his traumas because James' mother died and he inherited the parental "Baldurroc Mansion" in the Scottish Highlands. horror,
The antagonist spirit in the film is nothing short of disturbing, and the script preys off of basic human fears of the unknown. Wow. I've seen most of Hammer studio's catalog, and if they still made movies that were worth a damn today(Wake Wood was terrible and Woman in Black was nothing special), They'd be making stuff like Lord of Tears.

Atmospheric, must see chiller, shot in the Scottish Highlands, Genuine Creepiness - The Return of True Horror, For those who love story, characters and a lot of atmosphere for their scares, Well written directed and produced indie chiller, An excellent, atmospheric return to Gothic horror, Lord Of Tears: A film of originality and real dread, Breaks what to me is the biggest rule of horror movie-making, Horror / Thriller movies and TV Shows: to watch: priority. It has a similar feel to the Woman In Black (if you've ever seen the original BBC adaptation of that you'll know how utterly terrifying that was), and so I knew I wasn't going to see anything new or genre defining, but just in for a bit of an old scare. (Well almost immediately anyway.) There is no feeling to his performance here whatsoever, especially when it calls for dire emotion which it does much too often. After reading a number of really positive reviews on sites like Bloody Disgusting etc I decided to take the plunge and bought the Blu-ray collector's edition. I personally loved it , and would give it an 11 out of ten if I could. And it's not as if the cast as is poor, in fact the quality of the support, (especially Lexy Hulme who was wonderfully warm and quirky and mesmerising) makes Douglas's performance all the more painful. There are glaring continuity errors (one scene he is having a particularly bad nightmare in bed and runs screaming from the room somehow fully clothed in a suit..)and some very incongruous background music just appears.
Cinemark Such a shame, I paid to watch this movie on Vimeo after reading many glowing reports on various horror sites online, but sadly I once again wasted my money. I would recommend some film students getting their hands on this, a damn good editing may just have saved it from itself, but again, the acting is dreadful, poor direction.
The lead actors ability is to me only a few small steps above infomercial quality. Sorry folks, but its a turkey. I love the fact that the guy is told in no uncertain terms, "NEVER GO THERE", and immediately books his rail ticket. Rate This Movie : SYNOPSIS: Lord of Tears tells the story of James Findlay, a school teacher plagued by recurring nightmares of a mysterious and unsettling entity. A school teacher (Euan Douglas) returns to his childhood home in the Scottish Highlands to uncover the root of his recurring nightmare. |. I mean, I am pretty tolerant of cheese you guys, but this stinks.
I'm sure Lawrie Brewster will improve overtime and maybe become a great director, but right now it seems unfair to give this one a 10 star rating when it clearly doesn't deserves it.
Wow, either director Lawrie Brewster recruited all his friends and relatives to give high ratings and write favorable reviews for his film, OR none of the avid fanatics around here has ever seen a genuinely atmospheric Gothic horror movie.
Also the mysterious central owl figure talks s*** in a pseudo-poetic way constantly.
All I know is one or two moments really creeped me out, and I never get creeped out. That rule, which is an entirely personal one, is that if you're going to take yourself dead seriously with your horror movie, you damn well better have good acting. Well, the propaganda was strong on this one.

Unlike other blockbuster movies that explain everything in triplicate, Lord of Tears takes it for granted that the viewer is intelligent enough to understand the fast cut scenes and dream sequences. Coming Soon. (https://www.facebook.com/lordoftearsmovie) This sort of horror movie is what has been missing in movies for about thirty years. It was not, it truly truly wasn't.
