Hanna Mangan Lawrence
A brilliant painter facing the worst creative block of her life turns to anything she can to complete her masterpiece, spiraling into a hallucinatory hellscape of drugs, sex and murder in the sleazy underbelly of Los Angeles.
A year after the mysterious disappearance of an 8 year-old girl, we meet her grieving family as they return home from her memorial service in their small town. Later that evening, strange lights appear in the nearby forest and the family is exposed to an inexplicably strange phenomenon that rattles them to the core. The origin of the lights appear to be visitors from another world that seemingly terrorize the family.
I understand if some people have issues with the pacing of the movie. Or feel not much is happening. Overall that is not untrue. I still would think it's unfair rating it so low, because even if you don't like it (which is perfectly normal), this was made with quite some craftmanship. The acting, writing, framing and editing to name a few things are at least above average (and I would even say that is an understatement).
Don't forget this is a low budget movie. So yeah maybe some would have liked more or even better explanations. Fair enough. You may have liked it to be a faster movie too. It's not, it does take its time. If you can dig that, you are in for quite some trip, that will be engaging and shocking (again if you don't lose interest midway through, which is not the movies fault or yours, it's just telling you that this isn't your cup of tea)
