“No Good Deed Goes Unpunished” was a phrase my father often used, much to my dismay. He wasn’t so much encouraging me not to be helpful as reminding me that once I was helpful, fate/karma/the universe would punish me for it. Well, that sucks!
So, I was enticed by this tag line for the indie horror The Samaritans.
Swift take: This has a resemblance to another indie horror I reviewed last year, Truth or Dare which ratcheted up the gore and dismay to an uncomfortable level. The Samaritans looks like it will do the same – terrify and torment the audience, seemingly calling them wimps if they even look away for a second. With an interesting plot and what appears to be a compelling story, I think this one will impress indie audiences.
