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 kills this is the script and the dialogue. And gee, take those away and you have .... nothing, really.
It looks nice, the actors do the best they can, the music is competent, the special effects are competent.
But with the dialogue and script gone:
The cinematography makes no sense at all.
The actors just embarass themselves, and the speeches are absurd and boring.
The music keeps just surging at completely random intervals.
The special effects convey a story that keeps changing direction as the drunken author wakes up and scribbles another paragraph.
If I were a producer and this landed on my desk as a DEMO? I'd have a good laugh, then possibly call the creators in for a chat:
"You folks really have potential. We're going to give you a REAL script to work with and see what you do, but this demo? It must NEVER reach the public or you will never have any credibility associated with your names? Understand me?"
