THE BUZZ
"A gleefully creepy piece of grand guignol, evoking the style of David Fincher’s SE7EN with the dread of a Clive Barker tale. Recommended" -BattleRoyaleWithCheese.com 
"A potent cocktail of horror and black comedy that cuts a bloody dash. Beck Mather is superb" -Starburst Magazine 
"AMAZING! Charismata excels" -Decay Mag
"Hugely entertaining" -Scream Magazine 
"Could well be one of the best independent films this year" -London Horror Society
"A stylish and creepy crime chiller" -ThatMomentIn.com
"Charismata is unmissable indie horror" -Audiences Everywhere

FULL DESCRIPTION

Charismata is without a doubt one of the best indie horror-thrillers our festival has been honored to screen. Combining the nail-biting tension of films like Se7en, Zodiac, and Silence of the Lambs with the psychological horror of films like Repulsion, Rosemary's Baby, and Jacob's Ladder and just a touch of The Exorcist's spiritual dread, Charismata is a brutal and gripping descent into madness commanded by strong performances and fleshed-out, flawed characters that subvert stereotypes at the same time they execute classic horror tropes. (Aaron Allen)
