coulda been a contender.... but no
7 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the summer of 1933, little Ricky sees his mom kill his father before turning the gun on herself. In the present day, a clearly disturbed Ricky is talking to a psychiatrist about whom he deems truly responsible for his parents' deaths (an incubus), he then proceeds to tell of the events that he witnessed in 1973 (where most of the film takes place). Rick, a happily married insurance agent finds his life unraveling after remembering his past, feeling alienated from his family & deciding to take a peculiar young woman by the name of Ariel on a trip to his childhood home.

I've seen worse low-budget horror films, and the plot itself is fairly good. But the film just feels fairly repetitive and I found my interests waning before too long. I kept expecting a 'shocking twist' ending that was going to tie the incoherence of the rest of the film together. But when it did finally come I found it to be trite, silly & easily enough to see coming a mile away. Perhaps if the film spent a tad more time incubating it would've been (somewhat) worthwhile, but as it is the film is half-baked.

Eye Candy: Lindsley Allen, Axelle Cummings, Lauren Mary Kim, Nyra & Sukunya Wangsomnuk all get topless

My Grade: D+

DVD Extras: A 25 and a half minute Making-of; and trailers for "Hide", "Pandemic" & "Ghost Image"

1 Easter Egg: Highlight 'Killing Ariel' in the extras menu for the film's trailer
