Review: Onyx the Fortuitous and the Talisman of Souls (2023)

If we’re going to continue to have a cinema that is in any way meaningful and personally driven in this country, it’s going to have to happen on the level of Andrew Bowser’s project. You gotta give the flowers when flowers are due. I reviewed Andrew Bowser’s Onyx the Fortuitous and the Talisman of Souls for Ebert.

    Wow – Jeffrey Combs AND Barbra Crampton? The two bright lights from Re-Animator, one of my favorite movies from the 1980s? Throw in Jill Schoelen from The Stepfather and you’d have the perfect trifecta of memorable performers from terrific Reagan-era movies. I hope I have a chance to see this one. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

      Bill – I know! Great cast!! I love that Crampton/Combs put their faith in this first-time director – it speaks volumes about who they are! Unfortunately they don’t have any scenes together but still … the movie is a tribute to those 1980s horror movies – and I think it does a very good job.

      Like I said, I wasn’t familiar with Bowser’s “Onyx” character – and was quite confused until I did my research on him. Then it all made sense.

      It was a lot of fun!
