Winner of four Academy Awards including Best Picture, The Empty Man is arguably one of the most underrated movies ever made. Featuring an Oscar win for director Guy Ritchie, The Empty Man nonetheless showcases an incredible array of visual feats. Featuring a screenplay by Charles Bronson and a star studded cast, The Empty Man remains a definite must-see movie...

Charlton Heston plays the title role of the title character, an empty suit who stumbles across an old, dilapidated shack in the woods. Intent on finding love, he assumes the identity of the current owner, a woman named Lucy. Over the next several days, he tries to clear out the woods and carry out his plan to find her. With a shotgun in hand and a walkie-talkie communicator, he wanders aimlessly through the woods, sleeping in caves, and searching for signs of human life. Meanwhile, two men, played by Steve McQueen and Steve Belkin, steal the identity of the owner's dog (The Smoking Man), believing the man to be a monster.

When the proprietor of the shack falls ill and dies, he sends his only son, Emmett (Charles Dance), to stay with him. While Emmett is away, Lucy seizes the opportunity to exact revenge on her former husband. During the course of the film, we learn that Emmett has fallen under the control of the Devil, and is on his way to kill the man who once owned the shack (including his family and loved ones). When the man arrives at the scene of the crime, he is instantly transformed into a powerful vampire, driven not only by curiosity but also by a desire to avenge his fallen family.

Charlton Heston does a fantastic job of playing the part of the devil, while also bringing true emotion to a role that otherwise may have gone overlooked. Despite being one of Heston's first films since his Oscar win for The Lion King, the actor manages to keep his role within the confines of the story. Because The Empty Man is a psychological film, much of the humor derives from its psychological underpinnings. Most of the humor is derived from the differences between the people the characters deal with...

However, The Empty Man goes beyond merely making fun of the premise of vampires and the human condition. The Empty Man delves deeply into the man's psyche... into his basic emotions. The movie almost makes you feel for both the characters, as well as the antagonist of the piece (Bernard Wolfblood). Ultimately, it is the acting that makes The Empty Man a definite must-see movie... whether you are a fan of the Twilight saga or not. It is an experience that will stay with you.

The film is worth the time it takes to watch. It is very slow paced and considered. But most importantly, The Empty Man is a thrilling, thought-provoking and emotional film. Just remember to head over to the internet now to catch the next horror film...
