Without spoiling, we review the Hellraiser fan film by NMJ Films called “Chatterer” and below there’s the link to the full film as well! The film is directed and created by Nicholas Michael Jacobs, who has also composed the music for it. He is popularly known for his work on Night (2018) short horror film, and Urban Fears (2019) Horror Slasher Anthology set in urban atmosphere. The film is released on YouTube to be viewed by the public on Feb 8th, 2020.
Hellraiser has been one of the classic horror franchises in the horror cinema genre, with that in mind, there was a lot to live up to for Chatterer, a Hellraiser fan film by NMJ Films. This is not a remake or trying to duplicate the original film (That is, not a rip off), but it is more of a “What if” situation in the present time. What if you receive a parcel and it has a connection to Hellraiser’s horror universe?
The story goes like this- our protagonist is alone at home and sees a parcel left at the door. What’s inside and what will our protagonist do? That’s the main story of it, and the protagonist is played by the creator- Nicholas Michael Jacobs. His reactions and observation scenes feel natural, and it’s nice to see him in a positive role. The editing, and direction is good. The music composed by Nicholas Michael Jacobs is hauntingly beautiful and reminds us of “Dead Silence” and “Silent Hill”.
It has proved to be a good short horror fan film that captures the essential element of suspense & thrill required for a Hellraiser fan film, even if it is not high on violence or gore. Instead of violence, it seems to be focusing on the psychological aspect of mystery and otherworld aspect of horror. It is a 5 minutes thrill ride that seems like a great homage to Hellraiser. While we wish it was a bit longer, maybe NMJ Films’ motive was to make a genuine fan film instead of a long horror film full of filler content, the film wants to give you the best type of suspenseful horror experience they can without wasting your time.
Overall, the fan film is already released on YouTube to watch for free and there’s no harm in giving it a chance. It is a definite must watch for the beautiful music, suspense and a creepy ending that leaves you wanting for more!
