It Scared The Hell Out Of Me!!! Don't watch it alone at night. You have been warned.
My god! The Horror! Don't have the guts to see this twice.
Where to begin....
Now it begins with a man (Paul Sharpe played by Vincent Rekert) having an astral projection (a.k.a. an out of body experience like a disembodied soul). He is hovering over the farm of his father in law.
He is woken up by his young son just as he was being observed and recognized by his father in law.
Paul is a director, directing commercials. Previously he directed a documentary film about Australian Aboriginal long distance communication by astral projection. He interviews an elderly couple who have been using this process to find younger bodies for themselves as they grow old and wear out their existing bodies. The explain this process to the man in detail. They say that they have lived for thousands of years hence the alternate title of the film Eternal Evil.
What Paul doesn't realize is the elderly couple's secret agenda.
Very good plot. Very well acted and directed. This film wisely avoids over the top special effects.
In short: an eye-opening film. You will never look at people the same way again.
10 out of 10. You're lucky if you own it on DVD.
Other recommendations: 1. Out of the Body (1989). 2. The Astral Factor (1976). 3. Fallen (1998) starring Denzel Washington.
Thank you for reading!
