*A Movie Review
There are secrets, then there are demented enigmas that are harmful to anyone’s health, should they be nearby. Pitchfork, set in the lush, farm country of Michigan, is the story of a demonic being with a thirst for blood… for some reason.
Hunter has returned home, with a group of friends from NYC. Traveling in a van, decorated in rainbows and streamers, he plans to break devastating news to his hardnosed, uncompromising father. His friends, who carry no redeeming qualities, save but one, are unlikable and a poor choice to take on such a life-altering journey, but planned a barn dance to celebrate his endeavor. In the end, none of it even mattered because an outlandish creature, with a pitchfork for a hand, is on the prowl and killing with no discrimination.
This movie easily fits into the classic 80’s and 90’s slasher, horror genre. With a low-budget creature (wearing worn-out boots, jeans and a face a fennec fox could love), and characters so shallow, even I wanted to kill them, I found it to be a perfect SyFy or Chiller, made for tv movie that struggled to entertain. With its crude, new adults and weak comic relief, I walked away feeling I hadn’t lost ninety-four minutes of my life. This is a good thing.
I did some reading and discovered Pitchfork won seven awards from its September 2016 premiere, with one being for "Best First Time Filmmaker Horror". It also won six others, so props to the creators, producers and crew, but if I had to score this movie, sadly it would be low. Regardless, I still think it’s worth the watch. You have been forewarned!
Check out Pitchfork, available anywhere you can rent a video.
