Nix (Movie Review)

REVIEW OVERVIEW

The Film

SUMMARY

A family on a camping trip find themselves tormented by a strange entity.

What started as a simple camping trip for the Coyle family, suddenly turns terrible when their young daughter Tessa goes missing. Flash forward 25 years, and the disappearance still haunts the family. Donna (Dee Wallace) still believes in her heart that Tessa is alive, continuing to celebrate her birthday in the hopes she’ll one day return. Donna’s oldest son, Jack (James Zimbardi) attempts to keep the family as one cohesive unit, while middle son Lucas (Skyler Caleb) struggles to recover from addiction all while raising his one child.

Soon, odd events start occurring, culminating with the appearance of an entity known as the “Nix.” Is this entity here to confront the family over what happened in the woods all those years ago? Or is there more to the entity?

Known for the film Sharknado (a film that is terribly fun), Director Anthony C. Ferrante has created another movie that will be talked about for all the wrong reasons. First the 1 good part of the film, which happens to be the cinematography and stylistic tones used to be quite effective. The sudden camera movements, while typically cliché and way over used nowadays, were done in a manner that seemed genuine.

Besides that, NIX just felt way too ‘been there, done that.’ The use of the trauma over the disappearing daughter never felt real and almost too tacked on, while the monster had no real scare to it.

While I didn’t expect much from NIX, I was truly disappointed as I’d hoped it would be at least campy fun. I wouldn’t recommend giving this one a watch unless you’re a diehard horror fan who has to watch every film in the genre.

Brendan Surpless
Brendan is a home theater enthusiast of nearly 10 years now, having stepped into the interest when his brother purchased a (then state of the art) Sony WEGA HDTV in 2001. He's always been at the forefront of technology having purchased his first Blu-ray and HD DVD players from Samsung and Toshiba immediately upon availability. Since then, his interest has increased ten fold as has his collection (roughly 600 titles). He graduated from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in 2007 with a degree in Literature and Criticism and has written for a few different sites, each which have helped him hone his writing skills and interests. His favorite film of all time would be Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List simply for the raw power and emotion that film brings out in the viewer.
