Storyline

In 1982 a Russian physicist discovered something extraordinary was behind the strange radar anomalies he was recording. Something dark, which will eventually alter the path of mankind. Before he could tell anyone, he mysteriously vanished. Many years later budding physics student Dean Hollister and his discredited physics teacher have become obsessed with the same mystery. What had been a rare phenomenon is suddenly happening all over the world. The day it happens is a regular night shift for Dean at his mother's diner. Black rifts appear in the sky. Behind those rifts, something is moving. It's watching us. Written by Vantis Pictures

Trivia

More than half of the film takes place inside a diner. Director, Robert Kouba, found the exterior looked too boring and was therefore replaced by a giant green screen. See more »

Feels like something written to get funds
20 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Do you remember District 9? Really killer flick. The director, Neill Blomkamp, did a short three years earlier titled Alive in Joburg to get backing for the full length feature.

No, The Rift isn't that good. But it kind of has that feel.

So, how was it? Plot novelty - eh. I wouldn't rate it that well.

Acting - the lead kid, Dean, not so hot. Actually I'd rate him as the worst of the bunch. He seemed pretty darn inexperienced and wasn't believable. His mother and the fat guy with the white tie were decent. The other kid in the diner wasn't as bad as Dean. I'd have had him do the lead.

Special effects - hey that's how stories are rated these days. Not that bad. Nothing outrageously fancy but not too bad.
