Storyline

"Bilocation" is a supernatural phenomenon in which an individual appears in two different places at the same time, which has been reported historically worldwide. What if your alter ego exceeds your experience and ability? And what if he/she tries to prevent you from standing in the way of him/her? Can you accept it, or will you kill the other "you"? Bilocation depicts the nightmare of an alter ego that endangers not only your identity but also your very existence. It is an imaginative psychological thriller unlike anything you've ever seen.

Far more than your typical J-horror
28 July 2014 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Now this was a pleasant surprise. A psycho-thriller about an artist whose life begins to deteriorate after discovering she has a double with questionable intentions. Soon she realizes she is not the only one with such a problem.

Although initially the film might give an impression of an unoriginal J-horror, after watching it I can safely say that it is something much deeper and better. Recently, quite a few films with a similar idea were released, but each approaches it in a separate, distinct way. Bilocation is very ambitious, almost as Jake Gyllenhaal's Enemy. But most of the twists here are introduced in the last third, and each of them will employ your brain and offer a new perspective on the events you just witnessed. Until then, the film relies mainly on (an effective) atmosphere and classic Japanese horror style shared by virtually all local directors (long pauses during speech and looks over one's shoulder are unavoidable). Just because of that, and occasional pacing problems, the score isn't even higher, although I suspect a re-watch might increase it.

If you think of this as a pure horror movie, then it is certainly one of the most intelligent in the last couple of years. Don't miss it.
