Story: Journey into the heart of black magic in this riveting horror-thriller full of
edge-of-your seat suspense, startling twists…and dead bodies. Following a car
accident, Michelle wakes up with amnesia and bandages over her face. Her
nightmares hint that she's done something very bad. Now, as people around
her are murdered, she must piece together her past...before it kills her.
I feel very obligated to watch just about everything with Angus Scrimm and
Jeffrey Combs, so when they're together in a movie you better believe I'm
going to check it out! Annie Sorell who plays Michelle, is a minor (even though
she's in her late twenties) and is placed in a halfway house for problem children
after a car wreck where she developed amnesia. She is plagued by visions of
her dead father and has a fancy looking ouija board that was in the car with her
during the time of the accident. Michelle tries to understand her past and why
she is being tormented by her horrible visions.
The acting was really quite horrible, but I did enjoy the performances by the
house mother. Eliza Swenson, a sexy redhead, played a pierced out problem
teen and she was very entertaining as her character Dalia. The teens in the
house go about their day to day business and Michelle has visions and
everyone keeps telling her to forget about them because nobody really cares.
But she does damn it, and she’s going to get to the bottom of it!
The twist at the end of the movie was really unique, but the story was just not
really there. I wasn't interested and I didn't care about any of the characters. I
didn't even care how it ended. If there's really any reason to check this out
here's the short list; Angus Scrimm plays Michelle's doctor, Jeffrey Combs
shows up a few times as a cop to investigate, Eliza Swenson's boobs and the
most humorous (and by humorous I mean worst) fight scene I've ever seen
between our main character and her body double. Rent it if there's nothing else
to rent, or if your curiosity gets the better of you.
