Storyline

The film stars Frank Dillane (Fear The Walking Dead), Vanessa Grasse (Leatherface) and Damson Idris (Farming) in the story of a metaphysics student who discovers the practice of astral projection and the scientific possibility of a dimension outside our own. Coming to terms with the death of his mother, Alex turns to astral projection in an attempt to reconnect with her. "Coming to terms with the explanation of his mother's untimely death, Alex turns to spiritual contact after the relationship with his father breaks down. As a student of metaphysics, Alex learns of the "scientific" premise of astral projection-the ability to project your spirit into an unseen spatial dimension. Attempting to astral project, Alex becomes plagued by shadow spirits-malevolent entities vying to enter his body to access our world. Alex soon learns that he is not the only member of his family to have been besieged by such beings, as his mother's dark past is brought to his attention." Evil never dies.

What happened?!
25 November 2018 | by mjsregSee all my reviews

I was quite liking this film then all of a sudden - nothing! It just stopped.

It was obvious that some of the cast were either inexperienced or lacked direction, but it didn't detract too much from the overall story.

The editing could have been a lot tighter in places. Sometimes a shot would linger just a little too long which detracted from the overall flow.

It seemed that the film was just one big build up to something that was never delivered. Just when there was a bit of interesting action in the film that could lead to some very interesting scenes it just stops dead in it's tracks. There is no payoff whatsoever for the viewer who is left wondering what the hell the film was all about.

It was as though the ending was rushed in at the last minute and a large chunk of the story had been culled.

This is yet another film that had great potential if a little more thought had gone in to it's production. As it is, the film just ends up being a waste of time.

Such a shame because I really wanted this film to be good when it started.

One to miss for sure.
