Storyline

Times are tough for talented, twenty-one year old filmmaker, Donny Rocconi. He grew up in New York City, a place where either you learn fast, or lose everything. Estranged from his mother, and never knowing his dead father, Donny sets out to collect on debts owed, and is dragged deep into a seductive ambush that turns his world upside down. Donny reaches out for help from a "connected" Mulberry Street café owner, Gigetto, who has more problems than just the Russian mob. Insidious is a compelling and riveting story of desperation and betrayal, as Donny faces a fight for truth, love, and life itself. Insidious has a strong ensemble of New York City acting talent, and their multiple adult story lines are centered in their emotional and financial relationships. Written by Jerry Schram

Character and Story Driven
19 March 2010 | by bebibandSee all my reviews

It is always a roll of the dice when watching a new movie. Will I (and the movie) roll a winner or crap out? I never expect much, considering the quality and state of re-makes and rehashed story lines in this new millennium.

I was pleasantly surprised by this independent drama, as it sucked me in to its multiple story lines, and kept me engaged until the final frame. What a great, refreshing, and creative way to communicate many slices of life as an experiential journey.

I was inspired by the conviction (and the performance) of the young character, Donny. A young man whose world comes crumbling down around him, and how he navigates the obstacles, as he continues driving toward his goal.

Loved the New York City locations, and the natural approach the director brought to the screen. I walked away a winner on this roll of the dice.
