Limbus (2012) – By Jason S. Lockard

Limbus is the newest film from independent filmmaker and MFA graduate of Boston University, Padrick Ritch. Limbus clocks in at just under 15 minutes long, and is an intense human drama.

Limbus follows the lead character Presley, who feels he has found the girl of his dreams in Adelaide, but now that the moment is drawing near to take the plunge and propose to her, a terrible car accident shortens the couple’s happy moment. Now Presley is taking a journey takes him down the ‘rabbit-hole’ where reality and nightmares blend into one horrifying existence. Presley must come to grips with his past of a not so happy childhood if he is ever to have a chance at a happy future!

Will Presley and Adelaide live happily ever after or will Presley end up wallowing in his past! You’ll have to watch the film to find out!

Limbus has special effects are stunning to say the least and the actors’ work was well done, but for me the amount of profanity was detrimental to the overall message of the film. If profanity doesn’t bother you, then by all means check out this film for the effects if nothing else! They were spectacularly well done and really accentuated the film nicely.
