Movie Reviews

Fantastic Indy Film
Scott A Frank | USA | 07/01/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you enjoy the raw sometimes random noir of Indy films, then plop down your milk money for Ligeia. Lawler takes from Edgar Allen Poe and presents it in a warped yet focused way. Where Lawler's budget lacked his choice of Actors easily makes up for it.
As stated above where all Indy fall short is the budget, yet Lawler gets his priorities straight with smart camera shots, and exceptional sound recording.
Buy Ligeia, you'll thank me a couple years from now, because Lawler and his crew are going to go big."
Disappointing DVD
Kenneth M. Sarocky | san francisco, ca USA | 12/31/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This looks like one of those horrible student films I remember from the 70's. Mediocre acting and writing, a lot of boring interior scenes in L.A. apartments, an implausible trans-sexual, silly sadomasochistic sex, etc. This movie couldn't hold my interest for 20 minutes."
