Lucas and Clementine live peacefully in their isolated country house, but one night they wake up to strange noise... they're not alone... and a group of hooded assailants begin to terrorize them throughout the night.
In a small Maryland town, the suicide of an outcast teenager triggers a string of violent suicides. These suicides seem to stem from a curse which spreads when any person, who witnesses the suicide, is possessed by an evil force that appears as the person's doppelganger that only they can see. A young teenager, named Lindsey, thinks there is a connection of the events to Aidan, the outcast brother of the first suicide case. But Lindsay must race against the clock when she witnesses her mother fall victim, and must try to find a way to stop the curse before it kills her too. Meanwhile the God-fearing townspeople, led by a fanatic preacher with a connection to the events also, form a vigilante group to take the law in their own hands. Written by
Well, After Dark have finally done it. This is the first film they've picked up that is truly outstanding all around. It is well shot, acted and scripted.
This was the first American horror film to genuinely scare, thrill and shock me in ages. There is some dialogue that falls flat here and there, but it is overall an excellent flick.
People are criticizing this film by accusing it of portraying ALL Christians as evil morons. Hello? The lead character is a bright, sweet and totally charming Christian girl (as is her best friend). I think more than anything, the film shows how life can get ugly in a secluded environment.
This is not only the best and most chilling After Dark film I have ever seen, it is one of the best American horror films I have seen in a looooong time.
