Supernatural forces collide in 'Divination'. Jason (D'angelo Midili) is a young, successful artist married to the lovely Jessica (Natasha Sims). They're filled with joy at their first pregnancy and the uncanny return of their mysterious friend Dee (Lisa Coronado). But Jason is tormented by Fear (Tucker Boggio) continually whispering nightmares and horrific visions into his mind. As he descends deeper into madness an intervention is made by the powerful angel Joshua (Philipp Aurand), and his eager assistant Daniel (James Grixoni). 'Divination' is pure spiritual warfare, a thriller like no other. Do not trust every spirit.Written by
I'm giving this eight stars but a couple of those are for effort.
OK... so my husband has been bugging me to watch this for a long time. I have been resisting because I thought it would probably be terrible. However, when I watched the trailer I was impressed by the special effects. So tonight we finally watched Divination and you know what... it wasn't bad at all. I'm giving this eight stars but a couple of those are for effort. It's easy to see that the budget was relatively small for this production and that the actors didn't have a ton of experience, but despite that, the film hangs together pretty well. Let's just say I was never bored, and I was entertained throughout. I'm not going to get into a theological breakdown of the Christian aspect here... and I'm sure some would have quibbles just based on that. But for the budget and experience of the cast/crew, I have to give them a hand for the job they pulled off. I noticed a lot of little things, like the lighting, sound production, fight choreography and stunt coordination. A+ on all of those. If you are trying to compare the fight scenes to a $100 million dollar movie then you will be disappointed but this cast actually did a decent job. During a scene where the two main characters are running through a forest at night, the lighting actually works well. Lighting a scene at night is not easy. You have to know what you're doing.
Also, as mentioned, the highlight of this film really is the special effects, which help to ratchet up the tension of the drama and are pretty fun to watch. No, this film is not for everyone. If you are adamantly opposed to a Christian message in films, you won't like this. If you have a problem with low(er) budget movies and acting that's not top-notch then you also might want to skip it. If you don't mind those things, give Divination a shot. We were pleasantly surprised by how good this was and are really happy that we watched it! My husband says "I absolutely loved it! I liked watching the spiritual realm be visualized on screen."
