Always make sure of DVD-compatibility !!!

All of his life, Michael (Dallas Valdez) has been a shady businessman with criminal tendencies, but even he has been able to find true love - in lovely Sara (Carrie Keagan), who loves him just as much as he loves her, so he obviously can't wait to propose to her in his cabin in the woods - it's just, he has picked a really bad day for this, as presently Bigfoot is roaming these exact same woods, killing people left and right, or even worse, turning them into monsters of his ilk - and Sara falls into the latter category, and when Michael intends to welcome her, a glass of champagne in hand, she bites off some of his fingers and he only just manages to fight her off - but from here on has to literally hide from or even defend himself against his true love. And while he does, he reviews their relationship - which through no fault of her own was quite a bit stony from almost the first ...


Now I'll freely admit that the narrative structure of The Fiancé that pits (on different time levels) a love story descending into a gangster piece against a mutilation-heavy creature feature takes a bit to wrap one's mind around, especially as it only makes perfect sense towards the ending - but if you can accept not getting all your answers spoon-fed and can take in more than one genre formula at once (and part of the film's charm is that it plays genre formulas against one another to make something original), then you'll be rewarded. Plus, the film truly delivers in gore and gross-out scenes, but that said, doesn't go overboard, spectacle-wise and is carried by some very fine performances.

Definitely worth a look!
