DVD review: Edward's Julia (2012)

The crazy comes out in Edward Yames, (Jody Dean) after finding out Julia, (Kelly Novinski) the woman he loves is having an affair, when the relationship becomes fatal he finds himself falling apart and the voice of Julia threatningly haunting him. After a strange visit from a young physic Sara Middlestone, (Stephanie Walk) things start to get crazy, as Julia sends messages through her messagener, the only question is will the love of a new woman bring Edward back to normal or will the voice of Julia drive him off the edge before he has a chance to live a regular life once again. Edward's Julia is written, produced, shot and directed by Jody Dean who also plays the main character. The acting is bad, the camerawork and editing is pretty bad but the soundtrack is good. The pacing is pretty good, the running time is approx 60 minutes. There is no gore (although Jody Dean does get credit for make-up fx) and no T & A in this. This is very disappointing as there actually is a warning card before the film starts stating that "The following film contains violence, profanity and brief sexual content." 
Support independent filmmaking by heading over to Sickafyed Films official website here and grab a copy of the Don’t go on The Trail/Edward´s Julia DVD.
This review is based upon the region all (Region 0) DVD release from Sickafyed Films.
Rating: 1 out of 7. I do like the concept but it´s badly implemented with pretty bad camerawork and bad acting. The warning before the movie certainly raises the expectations but the violence is very lame and sexual content is so brief and lame that if you´d blink you´ll miss it. The only really positive things I have to say is that the plot and the soundtrack is good. It´s quite possible that Edward's Julia would have been a better flick if Jody Dean had not been involved in so many different parts of the filmmaking and instead might have focused on, for instance, writing and directing.
