Movies.com : ‘SIX SHORT FILMS THAT WOULD MAKE GREAT FEATURES’

DEUS IRAE IN SOUND ON SIGHT’S LIST OF 15 GREAT HORROR SHORT FILMS

/slashfilm : this week in trailers

“I had no idea how scary and batshit-crazy this short film would be. I was also floored by the writing, the effects… and how it made me want to turn all the lights on and worry about just what might be under my bed —even though it was still light out. Perfect.” – HORRORBOOM´S Scariest Horror Film of The Week

“Deus Irae delivers more in its 13 Minutes than I’ve seen in several 90 minute features. Let’s hope this idea finds a bigger home in the full feature arena.” – HorrorNews.net

” The dialog provides an excellent twist and fresh perspective to what we’re all familiar and tired with in the endless stream of exorcism movies.  Whether you’re a religious person or not you can appreciate the terror that comes with the battle between good and evil and what both sides are willing to do to win.” – DismemberedMedia.com

“I want to talk about how so many big budget, feature-length movies try and fail to achieve what this film does on a shoestring budget. More importantly I want to talk about when someone can please give the studio behind the amazing work, a decent budget.” – HorrorTalk [Ilan Sheady]

“… It’s like Lucio Fulci and William Friedkin got together and decided to make a cinematic baby. […] Deus Irae is a rare short film that deserves to be turned into something bigger. No massive budget is needed. These filmmakers have the raw talent to deliver. Now someone – please go fund them. ” – Brutal As Hell [Marc Patterson]

“The best way to describe this 13 minute short about a team of 3 priests who battle the underworld would just be that it’s Kick Ass. This short has hands down the best makeup and effects of the whole evening, with gore so vivid and gruesome that it rivals most Hollywood productions. ” – hearwaxmedia.com [Josh Schonblum] on The Toronto After Dark Film Festival

“… Rest assured though Deus Irae does deliver, and deliver in spades it does. On this form I can only see good things ahead, Director Pedro Cristiani, and his crew, have delivered a bombastic short movie that I cannot recommend highly enough. […] this is balls-to-the-wall action that takes no prisoners. God only knows we needed one.” – Filthy Review [Jude Felton]
