review by
Mike Haberfelner

Her stint with the army has left Eliza (Camila Rodríguez) traumatized, for reasons she won't even disclose to her husband Roe (Roe Dunkley), so much so that she tends to go sleepwalking every time she's stressed - something that might mean endangering herself before too long. So Roe decides to take her onto an absolutely stress-free weekend to a farm in the middle of nowhere, where there's horses, a pool, miles upon miles of beautiful scenery, and no cellphone reception, and thus nothing to stress them in the slightest. Sure, once there, their host William (Vincent De Paul) is a bit weird and at times overbearing, his farmhand Don (Cristian Howard) is on the creepy side and utters ominous warnings every now and again, and no cellphone service or wifi needs to get used to, but other than that everything's fine. And hey, even if William seems a bit off, his views on ending racism resonate well with mixed couple Eliza and Roe - that is, until they find more about William's racist cop brother Duke (Anthony Vazquez) who has gone missing, find a guy wil a torch and a welder's mask is roaming the premises, find themselves on the run from pretty much everybody, and find out William's efforts to stamp out racism have taken a pretty bodily turn ...


A welcomely unusual genre blend for sure: While initially, The Welder has a backwoods slasher theme to it and some folk horror overtones, it soon adds body horror and Frankenstein motives to the mix, all peppered with a healthy dose of social commentary. And that that even works is thanks to a thoughtful script that stays true enough to its genre roots throughout to never turn into a brain-heavy message movie. And solid performances, impressive scenery, and a genre savvy yet subtle enough directorial effort all see to it that the result is pretty cool horror entertainment.
