What Are You?
10 March 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dr. Sarah Chapel (Michele Hicks) returns to the small town of Brighton Mills when her father Dr. Robert Chapel (Richard Bekins) unexpectedly dies. His clients and friends miss him, and Sarah discloses that all of them have perfect health; they hear voices when they are sleeping; and they are addicted in the stimulant Tributal. Her further investigation discloses a dark secret about the haunting voices.

"Messengers" is a weird and original movie, with an intriguing plot awfully resolved. Michele Hicks has a good performance in the role of a skeptical and logical doctor trying to disclose the mystery of the locals that never get sick or die and hear scary voices. Unfortunately the disappointing resolution is not convincing and spoils a promising sci-fi movie. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Mensageiros do Mal" ("Messengers of Evil")
