This Tuesday the supernatural horror film Aberration comes to DVD. The film stars Gwendolyn Garver as Christy Dawson a Zamboni driving spirit seeing high school student. She is being haunted by a boy that warns her someone in her hometown is not who they seem to be.
Aberration has two of my favorite things. Hockey and horror. The creep factor is on high in Aberration as Christy is taunted by evil visions and a bad seed among her friends. The cast does a good job of creating the small town feel as everything revolves around the local hockey team. Christy keeps having encounters with the dead boy and soon after she sees the dead bodies lining up before they happen. Aberration is a mixture of The Sixth Sense and Premonition in a setting that will remind you of films like Youngblood.
I would encourage fans of supernatural films to rent Aberration when it’s available because the cast and story are engaging enough to keep you interested. I would have enjoyed a few more scares in the film but the overall tone of Aberration was dark and brooding so gore hounds may not enjoy this too much. If you are more into the found footage or CGI filled supernatural films you may want to pass on Aberration but I think some will enjoy the story behind the horror.
Aberration is available on DVD and limited theaters on Tuesday September 17th. Directed by Douglas Elford-Argent, the film stars Gwendolyn Garver, Kristian Capalik, Cal Thomas, Bobbi Jean Basche and James Symington. Aberration will be available on DVD at an SRP of $27.97.It has a running time of 85 minutes.
