A truly gripping plot
13 August 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I started watching Shadow Hours one evening on Foxtel (Australia). Pretty soon I realized that I had to watch it all the way through as the suspense regarding the mysterious rich man (Stuart) kept on building. The movie is about a journey of a young man (Holloway) in to the very dark side of city's night life with that mysterious rich man. Holloway was a former drug addict and is supporting his wife pregnant with their first child by working through grave yard shift on a petrol station (yes we call it petrol in Australia :). He gets acquainted with a rich guy who takes him to very strange clubs and places. That sparks a battle of conscious within Holloway and he finally manages to get out of way by following a rather hard way.

The movie reminded me of 8mm in which Nicholas Cage goes deep in to the dark and ugly of porn, gambling and some very psycho stuff in pursuit of a missing girl. Shadow Hours also takes us to all these sick places where at first you will not understand that what kind of people would want to go through that sickening lifestyle. But, If you think a bit more that probably you will realize that most of the people who hang around these places and gets abused by people like Stuart are mentally ill and are probably not accepted by the society. By hanging around such places people like Holloway who often are at borderline of sanity can be influenced in a terrible way. Anyway the movie was entertaining and thought provoking and I will recommend it to all people who liked 8mm.
