The Vision was a thrill ride full of local character.
6 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Robert Alaniz did an incredible job of not only telling his story, but also paying homage to memorable scenes from some of the greatest thrillers ever made.

I am not sure which movie 'deltar8' went to see, but it wasn't Robert Alaniz's The Vision - I stumped as to what she is describing.. maybe her home movies from that trip to the Dells back in the 90's?

The Vision is a well written, well acted independent film done by a group of dedicated cast and crew of varying levels of experience that have one key ingredient in common: The love of film making.

The story is original and has more than enough twists and turns to keep you guessing and entertained - let's not forget the comedic relief that is thrown in for good measure at just the right moments. This movie has everything you need including an original soundtrack.

For better or worse, Ellen Barrymore can see visions of the future. Sometimes she can change what she sees and with the help of her dedicated brother, she is in a race against time with a woman in red, wielding a bloody butcher knife. If she is successful the life she saves just might be her own. The trouble is that people are dropping like flies and she has no idea who this woman in red really is... or does she?

I am giving this movie 10/10 because I enjoyed the ride and after all is said and done, that's what matters most.

Incidentally, unlike 'deltar8', I was at the premiere at the Rialto. I sat in the very back of the theater and I had a view of the entire audience. I can honestly say that nobody left early... Maybe deltar8 didn't get a callback and her feelings were hurt? I can only guess at her motive.

If you missed the premiere of The Vision, the word around Frankfort, IL (where much of it was filmed) is that it did so well in Joliet that it is going to be shown at the Music Box in Chicago on May 8th.

Check it out for yourself...sit back and enjoy the ride like I did; you won't be disappointed!
