A supernatural thriller starring Mischa Barton (The O.C.) and Ryan Eggold (The Blacklist, 90210).
This is the third movie from young director Mark Edin Robinson. His previous film, “The Levander Tape” was distributed by Lionsgate. Mark basically made this film with his friends and family (his father, David C. Robinson, produced the movie with him) so it’s an example of truly indie filmmaking.
The films feel and overall production value appearance seems much higher when watching this movie. The cinematography is superb and could easily match that of a TV show or multi-million dollar movie. The scenery and time lapse sequences are superbly captured and reveal the change of the landscape in addition to creating an atmospheric feel and almost embodies the characters lonely emotion in one particular street scene. Its superbly done.
The film supplies a fantastic display of visuals, tension build ups combined with a beautiful composition of music that adapts and intertwines with the various atmospheres that are projected to the audience.
As the film hits the 60 minute mark it starts to get interesting, a film usually builds suspense with creepy music and jump scares such as Insidious 2 but with this film, A very slow build up in an uncomfortable setting just makes me on edge, i’m expecting jump scares, I’m expecting something to break the tension but nothing so far. Its working, I’m feeling edgy and the creation of tension and unease is working incredibly.
As the film progresses towards its end, the story develops into a strange twist of possession and demons, it’s an interesting angle as the film approaches its closure but it just starts going off track in terms of what is going on. When everything is finally answered its a little vague in terms of quite a few aspects. It ends on a strange note but never the less its a good film for the first half of the movie, the second half seems to trail off and it spoils the movie. Still for an independent film a very impressive visual display none the less.
