Rafe returns to review another indie horror film haunting your VOD and DVD outlets. Arriving from Uncork’d Entertainment and director Justin Price is the supernatural offering The 13th Friday (2017). Struggling to decipher the true intention of the film’s narrative, Rafe points out some technical issues with the film while appreciating the effort and intentions of the filmmakers, especially pointing out a call out with the final credits. Yet, the film fails to impress Rafe with its ghosts and scares which never match the promise of the trailer. Check out his review below. The film is out on VOD October 10, 2017.

And now a group of thrill seeking friends unknowingly unleash its wrath and damn their souls.
