Storyline

"Slip" is the story of Sarah, a young woman who witnessed her mother's murder as a child. Now grown, Sarah is haunted by her mother's memory, her restless soul, opening a gateway for the spirits of the recently departed. Sarah is compelled to do their bidding so their souls may rest in peace. One of these souls leads her to Cal, a young car thief who is one car away from going legit. Unfortunately, Cal is wrongfully accused of stealing from his partners and now they want him dead. Sarah, drawn by the spirit of Cal's murdered nephew, becomes an avenging angel, awakening a dark spirit of her past while risking all to save a total stranger. Now in a race for their lives as well as their souls, Cal and Sarah soon discover that there are far more fearsome things than men with guns. Written by Brian Maris

Pleasantly Surprised
15 December 2006 | by (Culver City, CA) – See all my reviews

Considering this is a low budget direct-to-DVD feature by first time filmmakers, I am very impressed. "Slip" is well shot and acted. The only exception being that Jill Small underplays her lead role too much. Don Turner in the lead is a standout and Hosea Simmons as the main villain steals every scene he's in. I wouldn't be surprised if these two show up and hold their own in bigger productions in the future.

The story is very interesting if not original. There are some clever moments and even a few that are quite touching. The film has a little of everything, some snappy dialog, some gore, gang violence, a little sentimentality, and supernatural themes. It's a mix of genres that is its strength and sometimes its weakness. You almost never can predict what's going to happen next and yet it feels overlong in its final reels when all the elements come together. There are also a few impressive special effects. And the music, appropriate. A fine first film for all involved.
