The Personification of Evil
8 December 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Montreal, on the same day that a policeman shot twenty-one children, killing eleven, without any reason, the successful writer Thomas Roy (Patrick Huard) amputates his fingers and tries to commit suicide. Completely catatonic, he is treated by Dr. Paul Lacasse (Míche Côté) and his big fan, the pregnant Dr. Jeanne Marcoux (Catherine Florent) in a psychiatric hospital. When the journalist Charles Monette (Jean L' Italien), who is writing a book about Thomas, schedules a meeting with Dr. Paul, he shows pieces of newspaper showing that Thomas was present to the last thirty-seven tragedies in Canada. Dr. Paul reads the notes and decides to investigate further the life of Thomas Roy, disclosing dark secrets about his past.

The unknown "Sur le Seuil" was a great surprise and one of the scariest movies I have recently seen. The simple, impressive and credible story practically does not use special effects and is supported by a solid screenplay, associated with a sharp direction and excellent performances. I would not recommend this movie to sensitive persons since it may shock. I do not agree that this movie is a rip-off of famous movies, like "The Omen", "In the Mouth of Madness" or "Rosemary's Baby", on the contrary, the story is quite original. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Além da Fé" ("Beyond Faith")
