Sutures - Five Dolla Holla
The general idea behind Sutures has been done a million times, but what makes this entry stand out is the film's solid production values. Sutton, having shot this film on the RED camera, brings a sleek, stylish look to the film. She also brings some hideously grotesque set pieces that have an odd feeling of being grounded in reality which is exactly what makes them all the more potent. The cast isn't going to win any Oscars, but everyone is solid right down the line. Allison Lange makes for a compelling final girl. Jason London is better then usual. Carlos Laucho does the tormented thing well. And veteran actor Andrew Prine is one of those villains that you love to hate. In the end, Sutures isn't one of those films that is going to win a ton of awards, but it does provide heart stopping suspense and some stomach churning gore. Horror films are supposed to keep you on edge and Sutures passes with flying colors in that department.
