Cailean has been giving into a demon of her own since she was a small girl, a voice within her that brings out the worst version of herself while also destroying the lives of everyone around her. Cailean tries to fight back, controlling her addiction and becoming a more responsible parent. However, this force within her is far more powerful than she can handle and her erratic behavior eventually leads her into death's domain. Finding herself at death's door, she faces 'Sariel', the Angel of Death. He serves as guide, jury and judge, a wry and tired elemental spirit charged with guiding souls through the underworld. In limbo her trial begins as well as her exorcism. Sariel confronts her with horrendous truths about her past and present, he needs to free her will as he too is looking to get rid of the overwhelming burden he's been carrying with for centuries.

Hearts in eyes, loved it!
29 August 2018 | by exotic-74444See all my reviews

First of all, I LOVE Horror movies, my fave genre of all films (horror rom/com would be totally awesome) Kick in the suspense of The Lurking Man, you had my attention at the get go. Totally loved the beginning how the actors and the editor (sound & picture) made a strong pom pom feeling. The protagonist popped as though she was being revived Drew me in, in a big way. Great work from all involved' I felt fear in a good way, yet felt real sad for her... All the actors in this indie film rocked. Cailean and Deaths make up was so cool! Would love a part two, to see Chilean as the Angel of Death.
