We all want to believe in life after death and imagine loved ones looking over us, feel their presence in a draft of air, or the faint essence of a familiar smell. It's what we crave, knowing they wait for us. But Jack isn't waiting - they won't leave him alone. Some might call Jack a troubled soul, at odds with the world, unable to conform. If you saw him in the pub - disheveled and drunk, talking to himself - you'd stay well away, think he was disturbed somehow, crazy. But Jack has a sharp mind and a razor wit. It's not that he doesn't want to live a normal life, he can't. They won't let him. Written by Anonymous

Disappointing supernatural drama
19 August 2020 | by scotsmitchSee all my reviews

Usually when I'm browsing for a movie to watch the names of Robert Sheehan and David O'Hara , two character actors that ( usually) don't disappoint, are good enough for me. Unfortunately this movie manages to suck the life from them . They both give a lacklustre performance that belies the talent they both have. This supernatural thriller manages to be neither.
