MONSTERZERO NJ’S 10 REASONS NOAH SEGAN IS AN UNSUNG HERO OF HORROR!

Noah Segan may not be the first name that comes that comes to mind when thinking of Halloween, much like Vincent Price, Bela Lugosi, George Romeo, John Carpenter and Barbara Crampton, to name a few, but you’ll probably watch at least one, if not more, of his movie roles during the spooky season. A fixture in recent horrors like Tales of Halloween, Some Kind of Hate, Deadgirl and Starry Eyes, he’s definitely a familiar face in contemporary fright flicks. The versatile actor is also a regular performer for director Rian Johnson with a cameo in The Last Jedi and roles in BrickLooper and the upcoming Knives Out. So, hit the couch, open a brew and check out 10 reasons Noah Segan is an unsung hero of horror!

MOHAWK (2017)

Flick takes place in 1814 with America once again at war with the British and both sides trying to win the allegiance of the local Native American tribes. A British soldier (Eamon Farren) becomes personally involved with Mohawk woman Okwaho (Kaniehtiio Horn) and her lover Calvin (Justin Rain) while on just such a mission. When Calvin murders a group of American soldiers in their sleep, this brings the surviving platoon members out for revenge and they ruthlessly pursue the trio through the wilderness.

Film is directed by Ted Geoghegan (We Are Still Here) from a script by he and Grady Hendrix and not only does he cast Native American actors in Native American roles, but audaciously paints the American soldiers clearly as the bad guys. Low budget film has a very raw feel to it, shot in Upstate New York and with minimal sets. The acting is a bit uneven at times, but the casting, costumes and settings give atmosphere to this very violent and brutal period flick. It has a deliberately methodical pace and there is a slight supernatural edge to it, especially in the last act. Add to that a very effective electronic score by Wojciech Golczewski and you have an interesting and effective little movie from Ted Geoghegan. Also stars horror film familiar face Noah Segan (Some Kind of Hate, Starry Eyes) and WWE Superstar Luke Harper under his real name of Jonathan Huber. Recommended for something a little different.
