Watchable ghost/slasher flick.
17 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

A back of my DVD proudly claims:a brilliant engineering student named Megan sets out to find the blueprints for the device that Thomas Edison completed right before his death;a device for talking to the dead.She assembles a group of friends to help her build it in a dilapidated house,never sharing with them the history of the building;a family brutally murdered one another within its walls years ago and they're just itching for a trip back to the other side.The device they put together allows that trip to happen and a very disturbed evil finds its way to our world."The Brink" is a watchable indie horror flick with some idiotic moments and pretty strong acting.The budget is tiny,the plot is routine and there is a minimal amount of blood.Worth a rental but nothing more.
