Friends since childhood, Eric, Dana and Frank have insatiable curiosity about the unknown driving them to experimentation in paranormal. This ultimately leads to an incident that so frightens and overwhelms them it causes a twelve-year rift in their relationship. Now after finding new evidence, the three reunite. It's time to finish their work and put an end to unanswered questions.
My "3" score is due to the fact that I do know Statesville and I am a current resident in NC. These two facts are the only reason I scored this a three. The acting is uniformly bad. The SFX are cheesy or absent. The directing seems aimless, e.g. what is the point of this film? And the sound is not aligned with the action (or I should say, non-action, on screen.
I did not bother to research the actors here because I can't imagine they have a huge filmography. One guy, Jeremy Carr (he plays Eric), looks familiar but I can't place him in any movie I've seen. Vanessa Orr (Dana) I seem to recall from "Vampire Diaries," but one more her acting is imminently forgettable. Thus the acting does not recommend this film.
The SFX simply consists of bright lights, electronic sounds, a blue tinted severed arm (which would be nice with my Halloween decor), and an exploding head which looks like a rubber mask afterwards. Once more, the effects do not recommend this film.
The direction and writing seem to remind more of Pirandello than a movie worth your time. There is a plot--but why? What is the take away? What does the director/screenwriter want me to see as the theme here? Or is this entire film designed as parody (think "Return of the Killer Tomatoes" )? It does not use the product reference as "Tomatoes" did, but this film seems so aimless, I don't know what else to make of it.
Lastly, the soundtrack. Jeremy Carr (the same guy who plays Eric in this film) is credited being involved with the film under the heading of "The New Disruptor." Perhaps his acting influenced his time so he just threw some musicians together and they jammed and then happenstance the music appears in the film. I have to confess I don't see much of a creative hand in the scoring. So don't think you will find any thing enjoyable with the music.
Bottom line: if you are from NC and certainly if you live in Statesville, NC, you might want to check this film out to see if you recognize any one or any of the locations. However, if you live anywhere else on planet earth (or in some parallel universe which is one suggestion from this film)--don't bother wasting your time. Nothing else recommends this movie to you!
