Review: The Vault (2017)

It’s more than likely this is the first time you’ve heard of such an unusual genre blend, between heist and supernatural thriller; and that’s exactly the idea. From the offset, The Vault seems to create its own style in theming. We see all the same cues from heist and crime movies we’re used to, yet things get interesting when our bank robbers go downstairs.

Though not overly impressive in cinematography, clear thought has gone into the film’s theming and style. We can view all the themes from each respective genre, thus their parallels, and finally their merges – the builds in suspense, and the horror of hostages & supernatural drama all combine together to create a unique feel around the movie that comes across impressive. Further, production narrative is clear – the past of each character left ambiguous which only adds to the interest in each character which

‘The Vault’ Review

Stars: Francesca Eastwood, Taryn Manning, Scott Haze, James Franco, Clifton Collins Jr. | Written by Dan Bush, Conal Byrne | Directed by Dan Bush

“The Town meets Sixth Sense,” they claim in the press blurb. Even if that were a good idea on paper, the result is a useless genre train crash with very little to satisfy fans of the heist thriller or the supernatural character study. In the end it manages to conjure a twist so dumb it makes the whole movie seem retrospectively worse – and that’s saying something.

Opening with the tried and trusted cliché of a desperate 911 call, The Vault is a rollercoaster ride of tired tropes. For a false dawn we get a reasonably tense, wordless opening sequence in which the pieces fall into play on the game board: a gang of robbers, led by Leah (Francesca Eastwood), gathering in a bank to make a right royal scene,

The Vault movie review: where the money is haunted

MaryAnn’s quick take… Psychologically risible and paranormally inconsistent heist horror gives us not a single character to like or root for, or even to cheer dying. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The worst criminal gang ever — unprofessional, unprepared, and rife with in-fighting — is robbing a bank. A bank that turns out to be haunted. Which they might have learned if they’d bothered to do the slightest bit of research, because it’s pretty much all anyone at the bank will talk about given the tiniest provocation. Whatever entertaining possibilities that heisting a ghoul-infested bank vault might offer are entirely overlooked by writer (with Conal Byrne) and director Dan Bush (The Reconstruction of William Zero), who employs the minimal level of imagination required to shuffle his unappealing characters through 90 minutes of shouting at one another and then dying,

Second Opinion – The Vault (2017)

The Vault, 2017.

Directed by Dan Bush

Starring James Franco, Taryn Manning, Francesca Eastwood, Scott Haze, and Q’orianka Kilcher.

Synopsis:

Two estranged sisters are forced to rob a bank to save their brother from loan sharks. But when the heist threatens to yield less money than they need, they’re guided towards an old vault in the basement.

Reasons for seeing The Vault? From the poster, there’s only one and it’s the name James Franco. Although the “…… and James Franco” billing at the end of the main list of characters sets you up for a one hit wonder cameo. Not the strongest of reasons.

To be fair on the film, that’s not quite what happens – and it’s perhaps the only surprise it has to offer. But a one scene appearance would probably have had more impact. Instead the majority of his scenes are just shots of

Movie Review – The Vault (2017)

The Vault, 2017.

Directed by Dan Bush.

Starring James Franco, Taryn Manning, Francesca Eastwood, Scott Haze, Q’orianka Kilcher, and Clifton Collins Jr.

Synopsis:

Two sisters must rob a bank in order to save their brother but the bank has its own dark secrets.

The line that separates horror from comedy is a thin one, with the best horror films steering themselves firmly away from this line and landing squarely in pure terror. Some horror films toe the line on occasion and sometimes even step over it but can still be enjoyable. Then you have films like The Vault.

The Vault is a heist/horror film which does neither of those aspects well. It centres on a bank robbery perpetrated by two sisters (Taryn Manning and Francesca Eastwood) trying to get enough money to save their brother who’s “in debt to some bad people”. After grabbing hostages and realising there

Interview: Dan Bush

Earlier this month I had the gracious opportunity to interview director Dan Bush – best known for 2007’s The Signal and 2014’s The Reconstruction of William Zero. Bush’s most recent work – The Vault – is a unique blend between the heist and supernatural thriller genres; set for a September 8th release. Starring James Franco & Francesca Eastwood, The Vault’s theatrical release is a space to watch.

Dan, going from a largely independent film maker, ‘The Vault’ seems to be moving you towards larger ‘blockbuster’ style features. Is this kind of filmmaking & releases a goal of yours to reach? Or would you prefer to stay at an independent level.

I just love making movies, I’ll make a blockbuster if someone wants to give me a budget anywhere in the world. However, I do believe that limitations make us better filmmakers. With all the things you have to consider when making a bigger movie: the unions,
