Storyline

A wealthy lawyer with a short time to live hides a secret--he is the continuation of a line of "reincarnates", and his memory is an accumulation of their memories. He must find a successor to whom he can pass on his memories, and he meets a struggling but ambitious artist who seems to be a likely candidate for the "reincarnation" ritual, which involves sacrificing a virgin.

Unique minor-league supernatural drama.
28 August 2008 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Mr. Julian, a wealthy "laudator temporis acti" and patron of the arts, is diagnosed terminal. He quickly puts into motion the ritual which has kept him alive for many centuries...alive, at least, in a manner of speaking. His memory, you see, is a continuum which has been passed down through generations of recipients. This metamorphosis occurs during an ages-old rite which requires two things...a suitable successor, and a virgin sacrifice.

THE REINCARNATE is a film of interest only to those with a fondness for the more cerebral elements in horror. Nearly devoid of action and bloodletting, emphasis is instead placed on the eeriness of harbingers in the storyline, and the slow buildup to an unforeseeable conclusion.

The cast does a marvelous job here, especially Jack Creley as the mysterious Mr. Julian, and Jay Reynolds as David, the headstrong young sculptor who has been selected as a worthy link in the chain of lives which have kept an ancient memory "living".

All things considered, THE REINCARNATE is a minor, yet thoughtful and oddly compelling item. If you can overlook some forgivable deficiencies, you may well find that this film has been rather unfairly dismissed. 6/10
