Welcome witches and warlocks,
Today I will be reviewing the horror themed short The Mill at Calder’s End (2015). Since it reveals very little, I will turn to IMDB for a plot description:
Nicholas Grimshaw has returned home to unearth the dark secret of the Mill at Calder’s End.
As can easily be inferred from the above description, the story here is fairly simple. In fact, many of the twists and turns of the plot feel as if they stepped out of the pulp magazines of yesteryear. We have our brooding protagonist, our family secrets, our quest, and our antagonists (both ethereal and corporeal) all present and accounted for. Add to that a first person narrative, a common narrative device in the pulps, and one feels as if they are watching the browned pages of a flimsy magazine come to life right in front of their eyes. Amazingly, the well-worn plot never comes across as dull, but maintains a charm throughout.
