Best Review:

There are simply win-win options for making a successful horror film, which at any rate will be able to capture the attention of a wide audience. And in today’s world, not limited to cinemas, there are many ways to get acquainted with a particular genre work. And sometimes the release of horror in the home video segment can bring its authors a lot more profit than the traditional distribution. But it’s much better when authors are able to combine options for showing their films, which makes it much easier to cover all production costs and still make a profit. Among the most popular choices for what can tell a horror movie are the traditional stories about haunted houses, encounters with zombies, adventures on a ghost ship and many other semantic branches, which invariably attract the attention of the public and provide even the most questionable project its share of attention. When the world screens came out now the cult horror Victor Salva’s Jeepers-Creepers, it made a significant rethinking of traditional monster movies, after which many fans of the director tried to repeat the success of the story about the grim old truck driver, who was fond of creating bas-reliefs of living people and could just fly up to the sky in the middle of the night. Of course, any movie that is called the heir to ‘Jeepers Creepers’ instantly draws attention even when it is not released in cinemas, but you should agree that there are not many worthy movies on the same theme. Nevertheless, the Italian director Alessio Liguori decided to try his forces in this direction with the film ‘A Shortcut’. And you have to admit. that despite a certain triviality, he has turned out a very interesting genre spectacle, which was not difficult to recoup all the production costs thanks to the story, which can not go by fans of horror about monsters.

Directly the plot of the film introduces us to the five British schoolchildren who went to study in Italy and as they could, so they entertained themselves away from their homeland, where there are somewhat different cultural customs. When the boys get the chance to go on an excursion, they decide not to miss their chance and drive through the densely wooded countryside in a school bus to their destination. But their gaze at the local beauty soon turns into something really scary and dreadful for the schoolchildren, as the road back turns out not to be as short as they had hoped. Impassable terrain leaves no chance for a speedy return home because of its sudden impassability, and then it turns out that in the nearby woods some monster hunts for accidental traveling companions, who only gives fresh meat, and no matter whose it is. The monster will not make you wait long, his exact and swift blows quickly lead to the blood, which means that it is absolutely unsafe to stay on the bus. In this regard, the guys have to go on a quest for survival, during which they will learn a lot of creepy things about the region in which they find themselves and it may turn out that not just one monster will be a threat to them on a short path, which turned out to be extremely long, dark and really cruel.

This is not the first time Alessio Liguori, the director of the film, has come into contact with the horror genre and tries to hone his staging craft with each of his subsequent works. Of course you can not say that his films are unique and unpredictable, but you have to admit that he is trying, trying to learn new facets of the genre to which he dedicated the early stages of his career and to grow as much as possible on himself, taking into account the best examples of horror. In the past, Liguori tried to explore the mysteries of exorcism in ‘Devil’s Trap’, and although the film was not the most impressive, it still had some good moments. Now the director has decided to go into the territory of Victor Salva and it turned out to be quite entertaining. According to official data, the budget of ‘A Short Way’ is no more than 1.2 million euros, and to tell the truth, the idea, invented by Liguori in pair with Daniele Cauchy, did not need to spend much money at all. The scenery here is mostly forest locations and dungeons, no special investments in the natural surroundings were required. The only thing that the authors used to the full, and what they obviously spent a lot of money on, was a school bus, but with the available budget Liguori and company could afford such excesses, and most likely they managed to get an old car for the shooting, which did not have to spend much money. Also, the film avoided a lot of speculation on computer graphics, which is definitely a good thing, because the modest budget wouldn’t have provided the visuals anyway.
