businessman named David Goodman (Edward
Furlong) is almost chosen for his career
as a PR executive for his job but however
they chose someone else by the name of
Tony Sturkel (Tobias Mehler) so David is
feeling down about all of this and goes
to the liquor store to drown out his
However, he spots a punk vandalising his
car with spray paint and sprays him in
the eyes that he gets sent to the
hospital and is legally blind.
He gets a call on his answering machine
from a strange doctor named Guillermo
List (Michael Madsen) that he can get his
visions back to start his career again
but he realises that he wants his soul
too which is the cause from a demonic
looking cane that keeps his eye sight
going and slowly loses his sight when he
doesn't have it.
He is also slowly turning evil and
possessive too with the cane and is
responsible for doing away some people
around his area and his wife Lisa
(Chandra West) tries to figure out these
issues and tries to save David's soul as
Due to it's low
budget the makers seemed to this indie film to life adding some great fantasy too.
There was a good shot on lead character David
Goodman walking out of a room
looking depressed when he found out some
A good shot on his eyes being
sprayed as well as an excellent
suspenseful close up on his white eyes
too showing that he was blinded by this.
There's a good shot on Scar's face when David opens his front door as he looks
There's a nice special effects shot on David being attacked by these creatures on a
wall as he looks like he really is in
We also spot a vicious lustful scene
between him and Lisa which looks
quite demonic like.
There's a good evil reaction on David towards Anika Sams when
he comes on strong towards her
and a nice moment on her
emotionally hurt afterwards.
There was a nice discussion between David and Guillermo List sitting
on a bench in the night as the setting
looked very horror like.
There's good dark shots on a woman when she is looking for
her dog wandering around her house and
really knew how to panick after she spots David with his cold
expressions towards her and really does a
brutal kill on her with menacing
Lisa looked great standing by a
bridge and having the demonic looking
cane but the effects looked fake when the
cane was spinning around before landing
into a river.
The best discussion in the film was between Lisa with David when she tries to confront
him about his evil behavior as it looks
very Shining like and David really had that type of appeal for this moment and was great at
There was a great shot on Scar approaching Lisa and then a
great shot on his fist.
There's a decent camera shot panning on Lisa lying unconcious on the floor during a
We see great shots on David and Lisa running through a
forest with ghostly demonic effects as
well as the creatures attacking David too which looked very
suspenseful with the shots on him.
The best part of the film was with David, Lisa and Guillermo with
their powerful discussions sequences towards
each other near a bridge and a great
battle between David and Guillermowith nice cheesy effects involved.
Bottom line is that this is one of the best
indie flicks of 2006 as many of them
hardly carry a budget but this one is not
too bad. Sure there are poorly done
special effects but some of them look
It's horror with a touch of fantasy and
sci-fi too and great performances by the
whole cast too adding supernatural and
some psychological moments too in a Shining
The acting is
terrifically performed with alot of
It's nice to see former kid actor Edward
Furlong (David Goodman) playing an adult role as a
businessman who gets himself blind. Does real well by
behaving like a basket case. Reacts great to being in pain when his eyes are spray painted. He also looks believeable when he is
blind and feeling his way around and
shows good expressions as if he is really
blind. Shows nice dizzy expressions
when he has trouble with his visuals
during many moments in the film. He
knew his part inside out and was
excellent by slowly turning evil as he
could have won an award for his role.
Chandra West (Lisa Goodman) has the great looks as
his wife and was smooth with her
performance and showed nice energetic
skills too. She knew how to act
tough for a scene that she was attacked with her fellow actor.
Michael Madsen (Guillermo List) was the perfect
tempting antichrist as he knew how to be
wickedly charming only to prove that he's
deadly and evil. During one scene he really
knew how to pull some energy by trying to
manipulate one of his actress' into driving
the cane through her heart.
Richard Stroh (Scar) looked nasty and
really knew how to come across as
intimidating too by being the
Tobias Mehler really pulled it off
playing a businessman who thinks he;s
higher than anyone else as he brought
alot to the story too.
Steier shows off her breasts during
a vicious lustful scene in the film.
A cane is stabbed
through a person's heart.
The music was very
nicely done by John Sereda as we
hear some nice chanting sounds and some
cheesy music too but it was cool sounding
