"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
Spirits of the dead possess a young woman to right the wrongs done to them, leaving her with the knowledge and skills they had in life.
This film has been "haunting" me, no pun intended. It makes you think about what things you will regret and wish you could change after you are gone. It left me with the feeling of my favorite Star Trek NG episode, "Inner Light" which explores what you would want to be remembered for, what's important in life - yet it is done with ass-kicking action and a sexy star! Budget shouldn't be a consideration when reviewing someone's art, so I am giving this an excellent rating for story, character, performance and direction. I would love to see what this director could do with a seven figure financing deal! It's refreshing to see a truly original concept make it to the screen. Support Indie cinema and tell Hollywood you are sick of sequels, remakes and rehashes. Rent this film made by a true storyteller!
