THE CRESCENT (2017) Reviews and overview



The Crescent is a 2017 Canadian supernatural horror feature film directed by Seth Smith (Lowlife) from a screenplay by Darcy Spidle. The movie stars Andrew Gillis, Chik White, Amy Trefry, Terrance Murray, Danika Vandersteen, Woodrow Graves and Britt Loder. 


A woman and her young son have to cope with an unexpected death in the family. While the mother and toddler struggle to find spiritual healing, a mysterious force from the sea threatens to tear their souls apart…


“Smith’s nano-budget, crawl through the maritime mud, moss and starfish-extract, first feature, Lowlife, hinted towards this kind of distinct, creative wellspring, and his environment-headspace sensibilities come into full bloom in The Crescent. The craft here, put to effective use, creates a kind of a fugue state in the audience, punctuated with moments teasing out the horror.” Kurt Halfyard, Screen Anarchy
