Angels Crest is no doubt a rarity among indie films. This sweet little tale of revenge has a few problems, but it’s just absolutely riveting due to the fact that it stars only two actors and doesn’t fall flat on its face.

And by two actors, I don’t mean it centers on two characters with supporting players coming in periodically. Angels Crest relies fully on the acting talents of Chris Bauer and Currie Graham as Teddy and Richard, respectively. To say that both actors do a great job is an understatement.

Starting off as a typical “buddies reminisce about old times” type flick that sees the out of shape Teddy bring office partner Richard out to the beautiful, secluded woods after stopping to pick him up for work, Angels Crest soon creates its own spin on the story. With the cosmos telling him that Richard raped his ex-girlfriend Claire in the woods when she was a young teenager, Teddy feels that today is the day for retribution to be unleashed against Richard. Through a series of intricate flashbacks, we learn more and more about what happened throughout the couple hour period that this film takes place through.

While some of the flashback scenes seem kind of irrelevant at times (when in fact, they’re not), Angels Crest is simply an unbelievable thriller. Director Michael Couto, who took three years to find the perfect locations for the film, is a great director. Chris Bauer and Currie Graham are tremendous actors. The script, for the most part, is just great.

The Asylum releases quite a few craptastic features to pay the bills (Vampires vs. Zombies for example), but when they release a great film, it is truly great.
