“Karl is a troubled young man. He has survived an attack from a masked killer, endured sleepless nights haunted by terrible apparitions, and been the target of demonic possession. In an attempt to get his life back together, Karl seeks the help of a therapist to work through his issues. But as he relives his ordeal, he realises his struggle may not be over…
“Full points then to Matt Watts for actually shooting Fatal Premonitions with a camcorder and presenting the movie in all its full frame, analogue glory. The visuals here are convincing simply because they’re authentic. The fact that he chose to do completely practical effects work in the film also helps. They’ve got that old school charm that’s so much fun to watch in movies like this…” Ian Jane, Rock! Shock! Pop!
