New This Weekend: I Used to Be Funny and In A Violent Nature

🇨🇦 Grisly reinvention of the slasher genre!

When a locket is removed from a collapsed fire tower in the woods that entombs the rotting corpse of Johnny, a vengeful spirit spurred on by a horrific 60-year old crime, his body is resurrected and becomes hellbent on retrieving it. The undead golem hones in on the group of vacationing teens responsible for the theft and proceeds to methodically slaughter them one by one in his mission to get it back — along with anyone in his way.

It’s the pervasive feeling Nash imparts, hinted at in the title, that the real menace in the woods isn’t a homicidal killer — it’s the very woods themselves. Don’t let the cheery birdsong and sun-dappled trees fool you: nature is out to get you.

Toronto Star

“In a Violent Nature” is soaked in as much atmosphere as it is blood and viscera, an inventively cozy approach from an exciting new filmmaker.
