After suffering an explosion at the hands of a terrorist bomber, detective Ben Walls awakens in a hospital and is forced to remain inside the building at the behest of his Captain. As Ben navigates the hospital's alarmingly empty hallways, he soon finds himself hunted by a self-proclaimed avenging angel and haunted by apparitions whose deadly motives remain a mystery. Now Ben must find a way to both stop the supernatural forces that want him dead and catch the bomber before he strikes again.Written by
The gray shirt worn by detective Ben Walls (Clayne Crawford) throughout the film bears the word "Veritas" in large letters between "Klatoo" and "Niktoo." Veritas is the Latin word for Truth. In Roman mythology it was the name given to the goddess of truth. The other two words were derived from "Klaatu barada nikto," the words Helen Benson (Patricia Neal) must say to Gort the robot in the classic 1951 film "The Day the Earth Stood Still." See more »
After been has been chased through the stairwell by the entities, he meets up with Ester, Isaac, and Captain Miller. After a discussion, he loads a magazine into a pistol and hands it to Isaac who then chambers a round. The next scene is a long shot of Isaac again chambering a round in his pistol. If he had, in fact, inadvertently chambered a round twice, there should have been a distinct sound of a full cartridge hitting the floor. See more »
A solid 8, with a well written story
After glancing over the reviews, and seeing people's confusion/dissatisfaction, I almost didn't bother to watch. If one can only think linearly, or if they are uncomfortable with an unconventional movie, then this movie will probably not be enjoyable. Off the top of my head I'd call it Paranormal, but there are almost equally strong elements of Crime, and Slice of Life.
I tried doing thing whole "figure-out-the-plot-twist", don't bother.....trust me. This may also be an element of what turns people off. This is purely a story being told. Just empty your mind of any preconceived notions and watch. Everything ties in smoothly at a good pace, and the ending is satisfying. Remember, I also labeled this as a Slice of Life. This means no dramatic moments of extraordinary epiphany followed by action. In the end the MC knows exactly what's going on, and just like every human who exercises free will, makes a choice. Also, just like many of us emotion will overcome sense. His heroic deed was accomplished in an anti-heroic style, but just like in life his obsession will.......well I've gone on long enough I think.
