    Spectrophilia has consequences…

    …when Ruth (played by Lindsay Burdge, The Midnight Swim, The
    Invitation), and her twenty something aged friends spend a weekend in
    the Hamptons. The guest house becomes more of a ghost house, when an
    insecure specter makes his presence known. Awkward, yet charming
    conversation leads to a passionate one-night stand. A suspected
    hangover spirals into supernatural STD body horror. Burdge’s
    performance is enthralling from start to finish. Each scene patiently
    plays out, amplified by beautifully framed closeups and rolling focus.
    Writer/Director Harrison Atkins has given us a unique, intimate, and
    subtly humorous take on mumble horror.

    ”Lace Crater”: You’ve NEVER seen STD done like this, baby.

    When the overarching premise of the indie horror drama ”Lace Crater” is
    introduced you will likely wonder if this is some kind of a goofy send
    up or an absurdist farce. I sure as hell did. But as events unfold it
    soon becomes apparent that this is far from what we gradually get in
    this fresh and wonderfully weird take on one of the most classic of all
    movie milieu’s, the ghost story.

    Let it be said that Lindsay Burdge (”The Invitation”) is outstanding as
    Ruth, a young woman who makes it with an apparent apparition and
    suffers a frightening fallout as dire consequences ensue in the wake of
    this supernatural and super STRANGE tryst. Burdge absolutely HAD to
    sell her unusually demanding role here, and she does so with fabulously
    flying colors, many of them through bursts of stunningly psychedelic
    sensationalism.

    Considerable kudos go to first-time feature film Director Harrison
    Atkins (who also wrote and edited this creepily compelling story) as
    well as Cinematographer Gideon de Villiers and primary Digital Visual
    Effects wizard Alejandro Ovalle. These three guys in particular team up
    to make ”Lace Crater” a total trip for the senses, keeping you both
    entertained and consistently knocked off balance as scene after spooky
    scene burn themselves into your barraged brain.

    For the life of me I could not determine why in the hell this flick is
    called ”Lace Crater”, having heretofore, and not surprisingly, never
    heard the two terms used together in tandem. However, recently I had
    the distinct pleasure of speaking with Harrison Atkins by phone and he
    hipped me up. Seems that ”lace” signifies the genteel nature of women,
    while ”crater” connotes what Atkins evidently believes is the
    ”cratering”, or demolition, of such feminine refinement. Straight up,
    folks, I’m not going to proclaim to entirely grasp how this notion
    applies in the context of what we are presented with in ”Lace Crater”.
    But then again, as I’ve also never really SEEN a film like what Atkins
    gives us here, either, I’m more than willing to go with it.

    This is without question one of THE most patently bizarro endings this
    reviewer has ever seen. Just about the best way I can even TRY to
    describe what happens is by way of this weighty quote by the great
    German writer Thomas Mann…

    ”It is love, not reason, that is stronger than death.”

    Or something relatively approximating that at any rate.

    I concluded our conversation by asking Atkins what he has percolating
    in terms of his next production. And while his answer was decidedly yet
    purposefully vague, the indication is that fans can expect more of the
    same surreal style of offbeat and unorthodox entertainment as we are
    treated to in ”Lace Crater”.

    Can not wait.
