Lukas Reyes is trapped in a seemingly endless loop between parallel existences, one being occupied by his spouse, Sera, and another being occupied by a relation from another life, Nara. As worlds seem to begin colliding and further bleeding into one another, he finds himself pursued by a group of shadow-men known as "The Knowers". The common thread between everything being a significance with the time 11:45 - fifteen minutes until midnight.Written by
A colleague of Brandon's named Matthew Doyle briefly consulted him on the Many Worlds theory. Matthew himself had written a script years before entitled "MANY WORLDS". 15 Till Midnight has a few varied references to this older work. See more »
The original, 110-minute version that screened at various venues contained extended dialogue scenes during each office conversation. It lacked the shots of Olivia Baseman's character watching Lukas and Damon in the bar and also lacked the opening text explaining the laws of the Many Worlds theory. There were also various takes and shots that are different than in the final version of the film. See more »
This was an awful movie. To some that may seem intriguing, but this movie is not even awful in a way that one should be curious about.
The acting was horrible by everyone. The actors seemed to be working with a minimal script (very poorly written) and took to ad libbing the rest. This left almost every scene feeling awkward and unbelievable. The only relief is that the musical soundtrack drowned out much of the dialogue throughout the film.
Which brings me to the overall production. Everything was amateurish at best. I've seen teenagers make more professional looking youtube videos. Weird camera angles and inappropriately executed effects, hacked editing, it all further contributed to the pain of watching this movie.
The story, on its face, is creative and may have been interesting, but was ruined by the lack of any discernible plot. Every scifi seems to have its holes, but the expansive voids in this film were too much to ignore.
Finally, what really blows my mind is the 9 or even 10 star reviews on here. I can only reason that they are paid-for confederates of the movies producers or the producers themselves. To liken this film to any recent big budget sci-fi is moronic and one review even seems to beg for a "hollywood producer" to pick up the story for a remake. It was because of these reviews that I gave the film a shot and now it's also due to those reviews that I feel so betrayed as to write my own.
Don't make the same mistake I did. Take this advice and spend the time you would've taken to watch this film on something more productive like observing the drying of paint on a wall.
