Beneath the Surface

Crawling ‘Beneath the Surface’

Well Go USA’s recently released DVD of indie effort Beneath the Surface ($19.98) offers a subversive tale of teen angst that puts a new spin on the zombie genre. Only in the movies is the line between life and death as blurred as the line between fantasy and reality.

The creepiness kicks off when awkward teen Ethan uses a neighbor’s voodoo potion to resurrect his childhood love after she inadvertently overdoses on pills provided by her abusive boyfriend. Ethan vows to use her undead body to both uncover the truth of and avenge her death. Things don’t go well, obviously, but credit the filmmakers for keeping it somewhat unpredictable.

The DVD includes commentary from director Blake Reigle, a behind-the-scenes featurette, deleted scenes and on-set photos.
