The Shadow People (2011)
Horrible Story vs. Horrifying Time
I saw this on YouTube and actually sat through all of the painstaking long story that drags for 2 hours and 20 minutes. What easily could've been an intriguing, yet forgettable twenty minute short was pulled like taffy.
Now, let me make it clear, I know how hard it is to make a movie with a small budget, and I truly admire the hard work that is put into such projects. However, laziness or pride can often be seen in independent film's shots, and unfortunately, this films suffers from both those flaws.
Most of the characters were poorly written and often unnecessary to the overall story. Every single person in the film wasn't able to string along a sentence at all. Which of course lies with the lines that were written... but I have a feeling that even if Conrad Faraj could create good dialog, the actors would've failed miserably at delivering them anyway.
Conrad, the director, who also wrote the film, took too much pride in his "action" sequences that didn't interest or scare or delight or dazzle or do anything really besides annoy the heck out of you.
Just don't waste your time. Or do. Who knows? Maybe you take interest in seeing horrible ideas come to life.
