There's a computer
hacker named Josh (Joanthan Tucker) who
hacks at other computers but he invades
the computer of Douglas Ziegler who is
developing a wireless signal and
accidentally releases a mysterious and
deadly force in which it gives people a
virus that they die from as well as
generating a suicide epidemic and
incresing the force and they seem to get
in when you log into your e-mail or cell
His girlfriend Mattie (Kristen Bell)
spotted Josh hanging himself as she also
encounters her other friends dying from
all of this in which she talks to her
shrink Dr. Waterson (Ron Rifkin) but he
thinks that she's being too paranoid.
She meets up with Dexter
(Ian Somerheider) as they plan to make a
virus to put a stop to the worlds
destruction by this force and to save all
humankind but this force seems to try to
stop them from doing so and each town is
starting to get deserted too.
There's a perfect
start with Josh walking the streets looking
nervous and looking around and then going
to a building with a silent feel to it.
Great shots on him looking around at a
library with some quick camera shots too
and other terrific shots like on a light
above flashing and the book shelf alley
ways. The best shots are with him
slowly staring into a book shelf with an
empty space and then the camera focuses
into the space and then a phantom leaps and and
grabs him which is guaranteed to make you
There's a great dark moment with Mattie walking to
her boyfriends apartment with a good
camera shot looking down on her when she
is at his door and reaching for the key
on the top with her peeking in the door
calling to him. There's many good camera
shots on her looking around in his suite
along with her opening his fridge and
spotting maggots and then a good
background shot on Josh coming
from behind some plastic drapes walking
past her acting silent along with her
just wondering what the hell is going on.
Then there's perfect shots on Josh hung in a room with a frightened
expression on Mattie's face
There's many effective conversation sequences
between Mattie and a
We have some great shots on Professor Cardiff walking
towards a bus and the bus swerves.
Many good close up shots on Mattie, Isabelle Fuentes, Stone and Tim at
their computer messaging to one another
and then a good shot on a repeated
message by Josh saying HELP ME.
A nice shot on a corridor in Josh's
apartment room with Stone checking
things out with other angle shots when he
explores each room. A great close up shot
on Stone shocked at what he sees in a
room with a good effects image on a sprit
ghost along with him running and trying
to hide beside a bed. Then a great camera
shot looking up on the spirit looking
down with him screaming in terror.
A nice conversation between Mattie and
a landlady having a brief argument.
We have another good argument between Mattie and Dexter about the
computer that affected Josh.
There's a great dream sequence with Mattie walking around town showing torn down
buildings with Josh standing
on one of the buildings along with some
fast action camera terror shots.
There's a perfect shot with Mattie standing in the streets and a watertower
behind her with someone jumping off.
Another great dark shot on her in washroom and listening to a toilet
doorway with a good shot on her and a
ghostly image on the other end and then a
good shot looking up with her pushing the
door open and then a nice shot on a crack
of a door with an eye of a spirit looking
and her running out.
A good shot on Stone freaking out like a child with Tim watching him shocked and then some great
camera shots on Tim himself covering his room
with red tape.
A nice shot on Dexter and Mattie watching his computer with a dvd
installed showing Josh trying
to keep his sanity about something but
just losing control which looked
extremely effective too.
There's a good discussion between Mattie and Dexter discussing on
what's happening in a diner along with a
perfect camera shot on a thin bookish guy acting crazy towards them
and getting demanding of what is
happening out there which gave it that
perfect strange feel to it.
Nice shots on Isabelle doing
laundry in the laundry room and talking
to a neighbor doing laundry and her behaving stand offish.
A perfect spooky moment on Isabelle in the laundry room when she hears a
banging sound in one of the dryers and a
good shot on the door opening with
clothes being thrown out and a dark figure climbs out and then hisses towards her.
A nice presence by Isabelle rising
up from her bed after Mattie walks
in as she does well not sounding good
telling her what these spirits want and
then dying with a effects on her
crumbling to dust and her getting upset.
There's perfect camera angle shots on her and Janelle walking in a
deserted townand then residents catches them by surprise
and freaking out about what is going on
and to turn off power which looked truly
A terrific intense presence by Douglas Zieglar obsessing on
taping up the room and acting crazy
towards Mattie and Janelle first crying and then laughing
Some excellent fast camera shots circling
around Mattie with a spirit as well as
showing her frightening expression during
Terrific shots on a bunch of hands
grabbing her as she struggles.
Bottom line is that I love these types
of films imagining that electricity
especially from computers can come out
and get you by spreading a virus and
dying from it. Borrows heavily from White Noise
but yet is not a ripoff to the film which
makes you jump almost as much with just
as much good special effects too. The story was hard to understand but
still it doesn't matter as we have alot
of great shocks and performances
throughout the films plotline. Good dark pictures makes it good so you
won't know what will come out and get you
making it a nice shocking surprise. If you love ghostly invasions then this
is the film for you.
The acting is
quite good as Kristen Bell (Mattie) shows
terrific fearful expression and emotions
to her part. Plus she speaks very well
with her lines proving herself a worthy
character actress. She showed nothing but
terrific energy throughout all of this. A good shocked
reaction on her when she spots something gross.
Ian Somerhalder (Dexter) is not too bad in
his role either showing a nice
seriousness to his part and being
energetic alot with the haunting around
Rick Gonzales (Stone) really stood out in
his part showing some interesting
characteristics to his part and really
knew how to act choked up during his
final part in the story.
Jonathan Tucker (Josh) pulls it off
perfectly with his intense actions and
upsetting emotions as the first victim in
the film. A nice reaction on him in her bathtub screaming after she sees a
ghostly image in the water.
Ron Rifkin (Dr. Waterson) does a nice job with his
opinionated behavior as a psychiartist
making his part very real as a not so
We have a perfect effective cameo by
Brad Douriff (Thin Bookish Guy) as someone in a diner
since he really brings out his insanity
to his part.
Elia Cmiral composes
some great hissing sounds with some
awesome banging effects which will make
you jump with the story. There's also
some effective humming sounds too as well
as some scraping noises too.
Webber: Just like Josh said, he
pulled something through...
Dexter McCarthy: Pulled ghosts
through the Wi-Fi? I just doesn't make
Thin Bookish Guy: [adding to
their conversation] It makes all the
sense in the world. Do you have any idea
of the amount of data that's floating out
there? The amount of information we just
beam into the air? We broadcast to
everyone where we are, and we think we're
safe? The whole freakin' city is going
insane, and we're acting like it's
nothing. Well, it's not nothing. It's
something we don't understand, and it is
coming for us.
Goth Girl: You're freaking us out,
Thin Bookish Guy: It's the end of
the world. That's what it is.
Goth Girl: Maybe it's the booze in
Mattie Webber: We can never go
back. The cities are theirs. Our lives
are different now. The things that were
supposed to connect us to each other,
instead connected us to forces we could
never have imagined. The world we know is
gone, but the will to live never dies.
Not for us... and not for them.
