Great Movie
9 October 2013 | by jdesalaySee all my reviews

Horror films are all the rage this year (World War Z, Insidious: Chapter 2, Carrie...) and After Effect is finally one worth watching. I hate horror movies, they give me awful headaches and I don't see the point of them. As soon as After Effect started, I changed my mind.

If you are looking for a movie that will leave you on the edge of your seat the whole time, this is that movie!!! Direction and acting are great, story line is very creative and still believable, hate those movies with ideas from left field. Definitely do not take your kids to see it, it was a little intense for a grown man like me but at the same time I wanted to see more. Hope they make a sequel the writing was creative and would love to see more from this writer.

The film is a visual masterpiece. Kirk Anderson gives an absolutely stunning performance, acting to absolutely nothing, yet always being right on the spot.

If you get a chance to see After Effect, go for it. David McElroy has outdone himself with this film, it's definitely a must see for horror film lovers.
