Film Review: PLANK FACE (2016)


PLANK FACE **** USA 2016 Dir: Scott Schirmer. 91 mins

A Bandit Motion Pictures production sharing a director and key personnel with HARVEST LAKE, this initially plays to genre type as a young couple fucking in the woods are bloodily interrupted by the masked, heavy breathing weirdo who has been peeping on them. It then pivots into something far from ordinary, as the male survivor (Nathan Barrett) avenges the actions of the eponymous, masked maniac in a particularly brutal fashion (with sadistic shades of the I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE remake) before being captured and by Plankface’s warped family unit, who groom him as a replacement for their lost patriarch.
