Film Review: FLOAT (Shutterlight Films) by Damien Lee Thorr

Starring Farzam Mir, Kyle Tassone, Sean Maloney, Mason Coburn, and Guillermo Ribeiro-Vecino.
Directed by Aidan Bova, Sean Maloney, and Mason Coburn.
Edited by Mason Coburn.
Filmed on the Blackmagic URSA Mini 4K and edited in Final Cut Pro and Motion.
Float appears to be a low budget fan film based on Stephen King's It, even featuring the hideous and deadly clown, Pennywise. This was poorly photographed even though it reflects a lot of attention to detail. The film lasts less than a half hour and once it gets into horror overdrive mode, it feels like a constant living nightmare that will frighten those who scare easily but I doubt it will scare those of us who know reality from fiction. I have seen many fan films based on well-established characters that are written and produced well but this one falls short in many ways. The teens' acting skills in this film need a little work but it may be the start of a good future for them if they pursue it and improve. One thing I must point out is that the arts are always at the mercy of emotion and what appeals to an individual may not appeal to another. I must strongly state that people should experience a film (or music or other art forms) on their own rather than be swayed by a review such as this one. -Damien Lee Thorr
