The first movie I’ve seen of this year’s “After Dark Horror Fest”.

Director: Joel Anderson.

Cast: Talia Zucker, Rosie Traynorr,David Pledger, Martin Sharpe, Steve Jodrell.

What’s It About

The movie is basically about a girl dies while swimming, this leads to a series of unusual events that twists and turns every 15 minutes and ends up very unusually. But the main thing to say is, the girl lived two lives.

The Pros

I’ll give you a 5-letter word, “CREEPY”. The movie creeped me out in a whole different way and I wasn’t even looking forward to this one. The thing is, everything in this movie, the documentry style execution, the video footages, the photos, the actors, the threesome, you just name it and I can guarantee you that it’s creepy.

The execution was great, the way they unfolds the mystery wasn’t new or original but it was quite different(in a good way) and disturbing.

The Cons

Umm….the movie is really really slow. It’s only 1 hour 20 minutes but it felt like forever.

I’m not sure if the following falls in “The Cons” rather than “I am retarded”. I failed to understand the ending(a creepy one with the psychic), which is pretty much a big part of the point the movie tried to make. So, I asked someone to explain it to me and after he did, it actually makes awesome sense.

Overall

This is quite a good movie if you can go with the flow. I’ll give this one a 5 out of 10.

If you have problems with the ending(like I did), here is how I understood:

*******MASSIVE SPOILER********
You mean the bit at the end with the psychic?

It was just showing that Alice had more than one premonition of her own impending death.

When she’s talking to the psychic, she says she could feel her mom in her room looking for her, but thought it was an odd dream of some sort.

After she had died, her mom told the same psychic that she could feel Alice event though she wasn’t there.

So basically, the whole thing is about someone knowing they’re doomed to die soon, even if only subconsciously, and how it effects everyone.

Reviews Pending.
