Customer Reviews

Pretty well acted, and has decent music.
ancient submariner
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.

This is about a guy who is filming a personal documentation if him while he is under the influence of a I dangerous drug created in secret ny the government . At first it seems like it is a drug that is supposed to make the person feel "high". But it's not actually a drug it's more of a virus that when injgested makes the person lose everything they that is safe in their life. It turns their life into a personal nightmare. Lots unique characters, you are always guessing whether the person is hallucinating or if it's real. Pretty good.

I wasn't expecting this movie to be as good as it turned out. It starts off extremely creepy with a college student performing an experiment by taking a mind altering military grade drug that is rumored to have caused all sorts of problems for test subjects in the past. When he disappears, a friend starts to investigate what happened to him. It's at this point that I expected the story to go down hill but the creepiness continues. The acting is really good and the scares are unexpected enough to make you jump. Honestly right up until the very end, you're trying to figure out what is going on. I would definitely recommend it to horror movie fans.
