A review in Boston

we got some nice words for our film by Mike Everleth from Badlit.

The Scavengers, dir. Cory Bowles. A trio of young boys find a dead body in a remote wooded area. Sounds like Stand By Me, right? Wrong, especially since the body here is that of a mermaid and the boys spend an afternoon poking, prodding and desecrating the body the way only young, curious lads can. Still it’s an oddly touching story about peer pressure and growing up. The trio is split among the typical dividing lines: The aggressive kid who tricks the weakest into the most difficult situations while the passive middle kid just casually observes without getting involved. Plus, the corpse/mermaid make-up effect is disturbingly convincing.
