Storyline

After a near fatal collision with an unknown vessel, five friends seek refuge on an island with an abandoned lighthouse. As they settle into the dilapidated old home at night, they are perplexed by peculiar noises, strange artifacts and mysterious shadows that seem to watch them. Conflicts and secrets between the friends come to the surface, straining their relationships. A frantic young Latin woman storms in warning them that pirates are coming. There is soon question as to what is real and what is surreal on this island. Before long they prepare to defend themselves when it becomes clear that these "shadows" mean to take them away.

Yeah, alright. Zzzz...
27 December 2015 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"The Shadows" is listed as a movie under horror, mystery and thriller. But wow, this was a snoozefest of untold magnitude. I started drifted away from the movie early on, and the movie never managed to fully captivate me or lure me back in.

Five friends are stuck at an old lighthouse, trapped by circumstance and trapped by a storm. They soon start having to face their own dark secrets and fears.

Right... Well, the storyline seemed to have potential and might have worked on paper. But director Sabrina Mansfield failed to bring about a properly entertaining movie.

The characters in the movie were one-dimensional and you never even once connected to anyone of them. And the cast, while trying their very best, just didn't have anything tangible to work with.

"The Shadows" is an excruciating movie to get through given its slow pace, inadequate storyline and lack of enthralling characters. "The Shadows" should stay in the shadows, shrouded and hidden away.

If you enjoy a proper mystery then "The Shadows" should not be your first of movie choices.
