Synopsis

Kyle Cole returns home to the town of Kaler Mills. He hasn't been back in 10 years since the people of the town turned on him believing that he was responsible for his brothers death. His brother, Ryan Cole, was the beloved "fair haired boy" of Kaler Mills. Loved by all, hated by none. After his death in a tragic farm accident a video was released that made it seem that Kyle could have prevented his brothers death. Now, armed with a documentary crew, Kyle has returned to face his demons. But he forgot about one of them... This is an 80's style creature feature with a modern twist. Made with practical effects and classic stop motion monster techniques, The Dooms Chapel Horror will keep you on the edge of your seat to the very end.

Abysmal, poorly paced, horribly acted and pointless.

94 minutes that feel like 3 hours.After an interesting opening premise is presented the move dwindles into a blithering mess of bad acting, pointless and unbelievable story and absence of any tension or true horror. Even as a lover of the most low budget of 'cam' movies, this movie is the worst of the worst. By the end of the movie everyone seems to have a camera somewhere in the right place. People in their most awkward moments are not worried about the cameras.Seems like in the middle of this small town out in the country there are cameras everywhere to capture everything! The acting is painfully bad. What makes matters worse is the actors appear to be trying their hardest to be convincing, but man do they fail. There is a huge plot hole regarding the reaction of the female leads character to a "branding" on the main characters chest that is just obvious to anyone with a brain.

It feels as long as TITANIC and AVATAR combined. Has no tension, no scares, mediocre gore effects and is a confusing long winded attempt at something that has been done many times.

"We have such wonderful things to show you".

I was suckered in by the premise... although sadly for most part it fails to meet those expectations. How to classify the film? A homegrown micro-budget, indie found-footage crossed faux-documentary with cult group influences, and creature-feature elements. I know, it's a mouth full. It does draw you in, yet, doesn't go anywhere out of the ordinary to compensate for its meandering nature. Not a complete misfire, and nothing to do with its tiny budget (although it shows in how they present the story), but the familiar plot is a slapdash of well-worn ideas scrappily pieced together, which goes nowhere fast.

Our protagonist Kyle Cole, along with his girlfriend return back to his family home a decade later to face to the scorn of his home town in the wake of his beloved older brother's death, which still plagues him to this day. He wants closure from these demons, so he agrees to film it with a cameraman to help document the process. However we learn there's something much more to his return, as there seems to be a worrying connection between Kyle, and a local cult leader (where there are stories that this man can raise the dead) that sets something unstoppable in motion.

Don't go in expecting much in the way of monster-action, unless you fancy off-screen growling and stomping. We don't see the beast come to play until the last slaughter packed 20 minutes, where we catch glimpses amongst shaky camera movement. Chaotic is best to describe it. There are minor touches of gore, nothing special, and practical monster FX, that's if you can make out what you're seeing.

What you'll find is that the main attraction really does lie on building character, or at least a script trying to. It's overly talkative, statically drawn out and wants to psychologically breaks down the situation. Mystery stays thick, surrounding Kyle's personal baggage, and his involvement with this cult group. What starts off shady eventually begins making sense (well not in a spell-it-out-for-you manner) leading to a bleak resolution. Then there's the inserted interviews covering what happened to Kyle before, and after the horrific accidental death of his brother. We hear from different people in the town. Quite a stop and go experience. Making it more palatable were couple of the performances. Austin Madding is stably fine as Kyle, but namely Bill Obsert Jr's creepily understated cult leader and Joshua Mark Robinson's unhinged hick disciple keep you interested. At times I had trouble with the audio, specially understanding dialogues, and there are some questionable scenes of how can they still be video filming/or who's now filming.

Caught him with the giant Jell-o mold

Kyle Cole (Easton Lee McCuiston/Austin Madding) likes to film everything instead of helping his All-American brother Ryan (William Ryan Watson) who gets caught in some farm equipment and is ripped to shreds. The townsfolk blame Kyle who goes and lives with his aunt. Tanner (Shaun Gerardo) is filming a documentary and they decide to do a Kyle homecoming along with his girlfriend Mandy who also got kicked out of drama school. Kyle is not welcomed by everyone and we discover a cult run by Jordan (Bill Oberst Jr.) that was not well defined, but it did have a book and a seal.

Austin Madding and Shaun Gerardo were laughably bad in their performance. We don't get to see the thing from the quarry except for large green hands. This seemed more like a "how not to make a found footage film." Was Tanner filming all those people getting attacked? Was he filming Kyle in the woods the same time as he was filming the town of Kaler Mills (Paducah, Kentucky) ? Guide: F-word, brief sex, brief nudity (Julie Howard)
