What's it about
Clay weaves the tale of a young man named Clay. Clay is a disturbed individual who was brought up by his father who has a serious God complex. Clay believes his father is a god, and that he 'breathed life' into him, while he was just a lump of clay. Now Clay is playing God with his own clay people, and wiping them out one by one after getting caught up in their 'average' lives.
Is it good movie?

Whoa. This was some different and most importantly good, stuff. What I liked the most about this film is that it is about relationships, and it was quite unique. Clay doesn't just go out and kill at random, he has an interesting process where he holds his hands out and the first person who touches him is chosen, through 'fate'. This character is a truly disturbed and well acted one. Wes Reid, Tom Minion and especially 11-year-old Emma Koziara really deserve props here. They carry the film, and do it well.

The interesting twist here is when Clay meets Jessica, the young girl next door. The various turns of relations between Jessica, Clay and her father truly make up this whole film. She is a needy and lonely child who desperately wants her own family, while Clay is an unwanted child who has worked for anything he's gotten. All of this leads up to the film's climax, which is a true potboiler after many things seemingly go terribly, terribly wrong.

This film was shocking, funny, depressing, appalling, you name it. It's not necessarily gratuitous or really gory; I can tell you that in this case, less is more. There are many moments in the film where your heart will simply sink, knowing the horror that is to befall many seemingly innocent victims. You won't know where you're going on this ride, but you won't be able to look away either.

Although Clay isn't the sharpest, biggest-budget film, it is true proof that Hollywood isn't always something that translates to success. Clay was a great film that really deserves your attention.

Last Call
It isn't very often that I review something without thinking of something negative to say. This is a rare occasion, and I must give Clay my full endorsement. It is an intelligent, disturbing and thought provoking film that kicked my ass. I didn't see this stuff coming, and I'm thrilled I had the opportunity to watch it. I hope this one finds its way to your DVD player soon.
