Storyline

Miles Kody, is a documentary filmmaker. Living off a long ago success he's now searching for his "second" break. He finds that in the seedy world of snuff films. He interviews Vic, a seasoned pro with a menacing, mysterious dark side. Miles becomes obsessed with the subject matter and his subject. Miles' primary investor, Carl, is also very interested, more in the hypnotic allure of the movies and potential for profit. As Miles tapes his interviews with Vic he becomes aware of the appearance of "ghosts" captured on his video monitor. He realizes that the faint energy fields of these ghosts, past victims of the snuff films, are picked up more readily on video. As a ghost becomes more powerful they become more visible to the naked eye. He soon realizes that Vic is in league with the Devil and delivers the souls of his victims to attain more power. Written by Douglas Alan Raine

Cheap creeps
17 March 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I just watched this movie and it wasn't worth the time. Admittedly the idea behind it is somehow creepy, but the actors (and most of all the actresses) did an unconvincing job. The dialogs were stiff and sometimes the story wasn't really conclusive. Besides that one gotta have a sick mind to get a kick out of snuff you gotta be truly patient to watch this movie straight from the beginning to the end. The cuts were a la mode - sometimes they reminded me of some of those FBI TV series, but they didn't help building up tension. Considering the fact this was the first appearance of Douglas A. Raine as director, there's still a chance of improvement. If you're looking for a movie that deals with the snuff topic, you better watch "8mm" but don't waste your time with "From a place of darkness".
