    Just another piece of trash that someone spent a maximum of $10,000.00 total budget to make. Even worse, the story is as bad as the acting and everything else about this "film".

  • Surprisingly well-done 7/13/2019 12:00:00 AM by queeroid 7

    A surprisingly well-done horror. It's half mockumentary, featuring interviews with the characters about their haunted experiences, which make up the rest of the film. It does admittedly have a bit of a languid ending, but the proper creepy moments and even a few good laughs throughout make up for it, in my humble opinion. It seems to me to be a commentary on matriarchy, which other might have picked up on if they gave it more than 10-15 minutes. But, hey, I guess female-led horror films aren't for ever fanboy with a keyboard. Anyhow, it definitely doesn't deserve 1 star, by a long shot.

    What a waste of time, some money and resources. I couldn't even watch past the first 15minutes.

  • Great mix of horror and comedy! 7/19/2019 12:00:00 AM by viclord12 10

    It's tough to get the horror/comedy angle right in a film. Too far one direction and there aren't really scary parts. Too far the other, and the funny parts seem like an afterthought. Ashes has a great vibe.

    First of all the, the lead actress was GREAT and I loved the mother character. They did a really good job on the flow of terror and periods of needed rest in between those truly creepy scenes. I became riveted as the movie progressed and couldn't turn away. It wasn't cookie-cutter, it had unexpected turns and at times grueling suspense. I thought they handled the subject of ashes in a way I've never encountered in horror flicks--it actually made me think more about the topic. Anyway, I don't think I'll sleep alone tonight with those images in my head!
