Jonathan is a lonely twenty-something, stuck in his home town working night shifts at the local convenience store. When an unexpected encounter with a mysterious woman turns his life upside down, Jonathan is stricken by illness and nightmarish visions. Paranoid and desperate, he launches on a quest across the suburbs to find the seductress who started it all. Friends and family believe he's losing his mind, but Jonathan is convinced he's the target of something far more sinister.
As a fan of the more esoteric based horror, dealing with the occult, black magic and demonism, I found this a decent attempt. The tension was there all along, and ramped up in the 3rd act. The acting was decent all round.. I never watched 'Malcom' but thought Muniz showed real talent here and was a believable, albeit a little bit charicature is his manic state.
The final act was well done, although perhaps a bit muddled and there could've been a more complete, fleshed out conclusion. On the whole though a well written and crafted film with good production value and a very interesting premise. Worth way more than its current 5.4.... a solid 7.5 for me.
