Pretty well acted, and has decent music.
Kindle Customer
The view is shaky and claustrophobic, but that is an aesthetic choice rather than dictated by the format of the film.
Garret
The movie is just missing something, and the ending kinda says now you make it up and finish it.

I discovered this movie by chance. I was browsing a site that listed upcoming movies being released to DVD/Blu Ray. I saw this and it intrigued me. So I watched the trailer and was stoked to see the film. I read that it was loosely based on "From Beyond" by the great H.P. Lovecraft. That made me even more excited because I love the creeping terror of many Lovecraft works. I saw the low score on this site and that only slightly put me off. But I saw that the critics were giving the movie positive feedback, something that doesn't happen often in the horror genre. So the movie comes out and I buy it and wait till the night comes to watch it. Boy was this a horror gem.

Plot Synopsis. The movie revolves around a journalist who discovers that her college friend has disappeared after taking a hallucinatory drug that the CIA used to experiment with on humans during the MKUltra project. After taking the drug a radio suddenly broadcasts a creepy numbers station signal of unknown origin before "something" comes and takes the person. She goes on a journey to figure out what happened and is joined along the way by a Hunter S. Thompson inspired character who uses the drug regularly. On the journey there are supernatural happenings and creepy CIA footage of patients from the MKUltra era. What the two discover is beyond belief and terrifying.

The movie uses found footage sometimes, but don't be fooled. This is not a found footage movie. There are instances where the film cuts to creepy fake documentary footage as well. But for the most part, the movie is directed in a way that can best be described as a combination of traditional film making and found footage. The directing style for these scenes I speak of is masterful especially for the low budget.

This was an intense little film with some big ideas. I loved the creepy feeling throughout and the creation of old footage of the mind experiments was really well done. Sound design was great and Ted Levine did a great job leaving a nice little twist at the end.

Not bad- a few logic holes here & there but forgivable. for example; after the friend is questioned for murdering his friend- the girl returns to the house and reads through his notebooks- however, in the real world- every notebook would've been collected by the investigators as evidence.

But- the movie had a serious "creep" factor... the premise of pulling chemicals out of cadaver brains and injecting it into living people was interesting- and the whole "frequency" doorway to another world was a neat angle. I just found it hard to make sense- don't think I ever really did. I mean- if some kind of zombie creature was smashing down the door, wouldn't you take the gun into the locker with you? Why break the glass on the module with the gun handle when you can just shoot it? ... skipping over silly small details like that ruin a movie- pay attention to the details!

The acting was decent- no real cheesy moments. I've seen much worse- and much better.

I just felt they could've done so much more with this movie- but it definitely made me a little "squinty" at times and it's better than most of the pg-13 "horror" flicks out there.

Worth a watch if if you like creepy semi-horror flicks. it's a good 3-star movie.

Very entertaining. Interesting characters and a looming threat that stays well concealed even in the final act. A well built sense of dread is maintained throughout.

I thought it was unique and disturbing. It takes a lot for horror movies to creep me out anymore, and this one did.

The story takes a bit of H.P. Lovecraft's "From Beyond," a dash of the real life events of the C.I.A.'s MK-ULTRA project, a small dose of the real life numbers stations, throws in a fictional character obviously based upon famed Rolling Stone gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson and it all goes out for a ride in the desert on one bad drug trip. LOVED IT!!! Would have given it five stars had they been up front and just thrown a real-life fictional Hunter S. Thompson in there but you can't have everything.

Pretty good movie. There are a handful of sences that almost made me jump out of my pant and I thought the store line was pretty good. I am a horror film finatic and movies like this one are the ones I look for. My only critisism would be that in some parts of the movie I had to turn on the closed captions to understand what was being said. Other then that it was a movie worth renting.
