Movie Reviews

Daring choice
B. Endo | Honolulu, HI USA | 02/12/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Growing Out" is one of those films that audiences will watch with expectations. It's premise, musician discovering a human being growing out of his basement has many possibilities, a comedy, horror, drama. The filmmakers chose romantic comedy, told through music with the homunculus as the innocent. It's a bold and daring choice and allows lead actors Michael Hampton and Chase Hemphill to play against type, and Hemphill excels as a borderline psycho, but as the film rolls on, the question is raised. Who is the real monster? There is more of a love story here than in most of the sappy, flaccid tripe produced by major studios, and it's this unique take on an oft told tale that makes this film stand out."
Definitely makes you think!

"This is definitely a movie that makes you think. Some gruesome parts, but not necessarily scary - a little more suspenseful than anything else. Would for sure recommend this movie!"
It keeps growing on me!

"After much anticipation, I sat down for a private screening of Growing Out: I loved it!

Brilliant writing and acting. You'll feel a little nauseated, a little disappointed in the characters, and a little happy - all at the same time! It's not a feel good, leave numb movie. It's a movie you'll want to talk about after it ends, even if you are sitting around and everyone else is doing the talking.

Favorites: I grew attached to the gnome for some comic relief. A hand growing out of the basement - just as creepy as it sounds. I loved Archie's innocent energy and was captivated by Veronica's song in the tree.

A little comedy, romance, horror, fantasy, musical all in one! An absolute must see!"

"this girl is gorgeous. who wouldn't want a guitar playing sweetheart that you could nurture and get out of a bad relationship with Philip. damn him to hell for eating her finger and causing her to only have 9 fingers instead of 10."
