For those interested in filmmaking, Gruesome is a fine example of what can be done on a very low budget with an excellent idea. The film labours at times under a barrage of horror film clichés and painful dialogue, but these oddly add to the dreamlike feel. The scenery and characters are bland but again work because at no point do they dominate the suspense and dread which saturates the film. While it lacks the special effects, jokes and the beautifully plastic people of mainstream horror, Gruesome makes up for with originality and a realism that give the feeling that this could actually be happening. Nothing is over-explained but events jar, creating a sense of unease that is exploited throughout, until the film is tied together by a satisfyingly neat ending.
