Legacy of Thorn (2014).

Legacy of Thorn is one hell of a movie, soaked in a suffocating and relentless feeling that permeates every second of the movie. Bathed in cold blues and warm oranges, the colour pallete used in Legacy of Thorn again, as in Mycho Pictures previous movie Slasher House, adds to the mood the film successfully creates.
Four years ago on February 29th, Jessica Lawrence and her friends lived a nightmare that has left her pursued from that moment by an unstoppable killer known as 'Thorn'. Four years on, and Jessica and a group of survivors from that night  make an attempt to stop Thorn once and for all. But how can you stop what cannot be stopped?
Who'd have thought it? A British slasher movie with what possibly could be the next icon of horror. Thorn, from his look, right down to his methods of killing, is possibly one of the coolest and scariest slashers out there right now. He is relentless, unstoppable and has some great kills in this movie.

It isn't all blood and gore though, as there is a massive amount of suspense built up throughout the movie, punctuated by scenes of deep emotion, teenage struggle and cat and mouse games with the killer and his victims. Thorn is truly unstoppable, and the movie showcases this in many ways, which of course I won't spoil for you.
The story is told in a different way, flashing back and forth in the characters lives, uncovering more back story and allowing the viewer to piece things together without having it all laid out in front of them. This again works really well, as the non-linear plot keeps the viewer intrigued and trying to guess what will happen next.
Legacy of Thorn is a slasher fans bloody dream, but it also encompasses so much more than a man in a mask walking around killing people. The colours, the cast and everyone involved obviously gave their all, and it shows with satisfying and surprising clarity.
Thorn cannot be stopped, and when you have a slasher villain who is as impressive as he is, we wouldn't want it any other way.
