‘God’s Acre’ is the directorial debut of editor J.P. Davidson, set in the bleakest realms of London’s suburbs. Matthew Jure gives an incredibly powerful performance as Malcolm, a failed property developer dealing with his inner demons. Driven to bankruptcy due to the recession, Malcolm loses everything and falls into deep debt. With his only possession being a house that’s rotting around him, Malcolm must renovate and sell in order to repay his creditors and escape the spiraling danger which their lack of patience precipitates. It won’t be that easy though; the home haunts Malcolm’s mind and drives him further into an alcohol-driven loneliness. There’s something sinister in the very foundations, and Malcolm must see this through to the bitter end. J.P. Davidson’s culmination of quick cuts and hard hitting, poetic voiceover keep the film's narrative progressing at a fast, exciting pace that fits the genre perfectly. Suspense and fear are built up highly effectively through the film’s haunting soundtrack and Jure’s performance, which endears the audience to the character of Malcolm so well that it will be hard to leave the screening without some lingering sense of claustrophobia.
