Storyline

Truth is a virtue one cannot cover up. Set behind the idyllic neighborhoods of Orange County, Ethan spends his days drawing comic books and dreaming of a happy life with his childhood love Kahlah. However, wedged fatally between them lies Kahlah's boyfriend Shane and his gang of corrupt goons. Threatened by Ethan, Shane's insidious plot to exact revenge comes at the cost of Kahlah and her innocence. Fortunately for Ethan, his archaeologist neighbor Angelica opens his eyes to a world beyond his wildest imagination. Immersed among archaeological materials, Ethan makes a discovery that leads him beyond the realm of living and into a forgotten past. Now he must walk a fine line to prevent all hell from breaking loose. To find out if Kahlah can bring her culprit to justice, if relationships beyond the grave can survive, and what will become of an exposed community, you must go Beneath the Surface. If you want to find the truth, all you have to do is dig. Written by Anonymous

A vision worth seeing.
12 November 2007 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Beneath the Surface is a brilliantly crafted film on so many different levels. I'm not one to toss out high ratings but this film gets an easy 10, and deservedly so. For an independent film, it holds together strong with a capturing story. The movie hooks you from the very beginning and doesn't let you go. The dialogue is extraordinarily well done and there is plenty of realism, as far as raising the dead goes. The quick, witty one liners and/or comedic scenes are well received and help to fill transistional points throughout. Having seen a ridiculous amount of high budget and low budget horror films, I push you to see this as it is simply one of the best movies that I have seen in quite some time. Blake Reigle is a great writer/director with an even greater vision and with time and the given opportunities, we will see even greater films to come. See this movie!
