Writer-director Sam Walker has made a thrilling horror-comedy on The Seed. Sadly, some of his self-indulgent attempts to hang the characters dry. The cinematography also invites the action beyond the movie itself as the beautiful natural light descends upon the first two acts. The horrors of The Seed are strange and disgusting in the best way, leaving viewers waiting in awe for what this beast really is. Although the movie looks good with an attractive look, The Seed is always caught up in its unwritten script.
The Seed Movie Review
Heather (Sophie Vavasseur) has an open house because of her unfamiliar father and decides to take her two best friends Diedre (Lucy Martin) and Charlotte (Chelsea Edge) out for the weekend. When the comet passes through the night, Charlotte and Heather are stunned, while the self-centered Diedre misses the once-in-a-lifetime experience of complaining that her phone is out of service.
The comet made a sharp curve and crashed into space. At first, it looked like a huge piece of feces before it turned into a tortoise. The next day the creature is able to move and now it looks like an armadillo, according to the characters. Needless to say, they were shocked and asked for help with the condition of the 15-year-old field, with foremen offering to finish it when Charlotte kissed him.
As soon as their lips are closed, the Seed turns upside down. She tries to reach her conclusion in the transaction but instead runs away very quickly, leaving the women wondering what happened and where the little monster is. Suddenly, Diedre’s complaint about the lack of cell phone service became increasingly legal as the girls now clung to a house with an hour-old stranger growing up.
When Charlotte begins to feel bad about the creature, she carries him inside and begins to care for a stranger they know nothing about, treating him like a child. Diedre is subjected to all of this and tries to kill the alien with rat poison. But someone looks into his glassy eyes and drops the poison. From then on, you feel like you are infected with the spirit of an outsider.
Lucy Martin (The Vikings) plays a country girl who focuses on Instagram well and is part of a movie comedy. However, the text strikes the audience in the head, reminding them that they are not deep in lines like “I finally got the word. D-good. I’m D and I’m alive.
“No doubt Vavasseur is coming to the film with the longest career, but Martin’s chance at the Vikings may make him the most talented of the three, making it even harder to see him move the lines of corny ad nauseam. Happily, the film it grows very fast and, in the end, only a short time for hair and makeup and life.
Similarly, the movie can’t help but remind viewers that Charlotte is not Lucy. Make no mistake Chelsea Edge has funny line-liners, “But kiss me… you know, CHILD.” The film, however, shortens her best moments by teasing her about having a retro phone, but with a touch screen.
Her role as a low-level hipster sounds like the best and most unnecessary reduction. It would be easy to say that you are an audience player because Vavasseur is a character who appears to be a real person. Never too preppy or too hipster, in fact, his speech and mind as an actor make the three feel very credible.
Lighting and cinematography help to make the Seed more attractive and its flashes of celestial spheres and green planets make certain scenes feel truly special. Seeds are a lot of fun in the end but getting there may sound like a daunting task. Not because of the games or the structure, but the conversation is not so good.
That being said, Sam Walker’s vision is clear and the movie is well documented, enlarging the environment and keeping the monster at arm’s length until the right time. With crazy neighbors mapping and a glass full of rat poison, Seeds has all the obstacles of a horror tour film. Sadly, the most interesting character is the ugly little tortoise.
