Re: “Nightmare on Market Street

Suspension of disbelief is pretty much the norm for movie goers. Most people anticipating being entertained by a slasher horror flick aren’t pondering the whole plot while watching the big screen. They are anxiously awaiting the promise of being made scared enough to jump in their seat and perhaps want to cover their eyes and peek at the screen through slits between their fingers. I’m not saying that the audience is dense…they catch flaws. But at the same time if you give them what they are there for, they are usually content to just enjoy the show.


Eric England’s movie was a nod to the retro movie films of the 70’s. If he incorporated some things in his plot you found familiar then he did his job…you were SUPPOSED to! I’m not sure if I’ve ever watched a 70’s slasher film and thought, “Man, what great ART that was!” LOL And I’m not really sure what “grand statement” you were hoping to find in “Madison County”. Perhaps the statement is; If you’re in college, don’t go with a group of friends to a creepy little town/ backwoods area looking for a tormented, deranged serial killer...you might just find him!


“Madison County” is a B film. But it’s a very enjoyable B indie. Eric’s cinematography was worthy of appreciation, the movie had believable characters and decent dialogue, his actors were good, he added a bit of humor, and he ended the movie with a nice surprise we weren’t expecting. Okay, “Madison County” isn’t going to win an Oscar… but it did win Audience Choice Award at the Film Festival. Apparently the positive overshadowed any negative in the movie. This was Eric England’s first film~ I’m sure that he will only get better as he perseveres with his chosen career.
