Insight of Evil is a ghost story about identical twin sisters. Eight months after one twin is brutaly raped and murdered, Tanya and comforting friends go to a cottage to celebrate their highschool graduation. It quickly turns into a blood bath of survival for Tanya as she unearths the truth into the long buried secret of her missing twin sister. Written by
Insight of Evil is not without its redeeming qualities, the idea was great, for low-budget it doesn't look that bad- I've seen far worse- and the soundtrack was serviceable. Unfortunately, the rest of the movie just didn't deliver. I've seen worse effects, but the monster was not menacing at all and looked cheap and awkward above all else. The dialogue is trite and stilted, never once coming across as believable. And it certainly doesn't help when the acting lacks any kind of personality or any heart for what they're participating in and when the characters are so bland and annoying in alternative to reasonably developed and likable. The story is also executed poorly, sluggishly paced and predictable, hindered further by overlong and lazy exposition in flashback, a forced opening and a ridiculously contrived ending. On the whole, a real waste of a good idea. 3/10 Bethany Cox
