The Tattooist is an impressive supernatural thriller that stars the
talented Jason Behr as Jake, an American tattooist who traverses the
world in order to procure new designs from a variety of different
cultures. Jake however believes that some of the designs can cure
people of a plethora of illnesses. Captivated by the ancient Samoan tradition of
that of tatue, the world of both the natural and supernatural soon
fall apart as he unwittingly releases an ancient evil.
crafted by director Peter Burger that includes some stunning
performances by Nathaniel Lees and Robbie Magasiva, this film
explores the cultural boundaries of both modern and ancient society
that draws the viewer into this chaotic world that challenges
everything our "hero" believes.
Composer Peter Scholes does a
brilliant task of linking the score of the movie to the world of the
"alleged" supernatural as the viewer is taken on an almost roller coaster
ride that will keep you glued to seat from start to finish. 16:9
widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1, it's as close as we can get to a
true movie experience.
