Storyline

A woman is tortured by the sudden disappearance of her only child years before. Obsessed with having another baby, she is devastated and driven to emotional crisis when discovering her new husband is infertile. Gripped by despair, the woman begins to resign herself to the bitter likelihood of never having another child. Striking up a friendship with two discarded young laborers hired to re-paint her son's now silent room, the three lost souls form a disturbing bond as the boys are led deeper into the woman's tormented world. Her family's suspicions of this unsettling new friendship sets off an irreversible series of events, leading to madness and murder as the horrors of the past collide with the sins of the present, ending in tragedy and terror.

An eerie story about how far people will go to end their loneliness.
2 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

Double Born is filled with plot twists and suspenseful story-telling that is rarely achieved by any director/writer/editor - regardless the budget.

It never takes its audience for granted which is very refreshing. Randel keeps the audience guessing up until the last frame! Rare. Reminds me a little of how I felt about the Cohen brothers' first film

  • Blood Simple.


The mood Randel elicits stays with you long after the film is over. The cinematography and sound help set the tone that the actors run with with no hesitation.

I felt a little like I was watching an accident. I couldn't look away and I was pulled, almost against my will, into a world of wounded people trying to find some way out. Kudos to Randel and the Cast. This film deserves to be seen!
