Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Save for some glaringly obvious digital blood and fire FX, The Clearing is mostly shot and edited well. Even with a single location and mainly one actor, the low budget usually stays concealed so the movie doesn’t look like a typical DIY effort shot on the cheap in a public park. That’s about the only compliment that can be mustered, however.” Culture Crypt


The Clearing is available to view on Crackle, the US-based streaming platform from June 4th 2020.
