Product Description

A PSYCHEDELIC CAMPFIRE TALE FROM KINO, GLASS EYE PIX & SCAREFLIX

Three aspiring ad-men take a weekend in the wilderness to brainstorm their assignment: the re-branding of a once popular cleaning product. Out in the woods, strange technical anomalies begin to plague their equipment. As night falls, the trio encounters temptress Summer Day (Heather Robb) fanning old flames and inflaming old rivalries. A mysterious disappearance sparks a harrowing descent into unreality. (As Everyday Normality Goes Grotesque. - Variety)

A spectral visitation from the product s former spokesman Mickey Hauser (Larry Fessenden) sets in motion an escalation of frightening visions, careening from (a tour-de-force musical number that grows increasingly horrific - Variety) to a startling climatic (freak-out that wipes all your troubles away, as well as anything else lying around in your head. - Village Voice)

This double-feature DVD also features THE VIEWER... A brand new 3D stereoscopic short film from director Graham Reznick.

"I Can See You" is a fascinating low-budget horror film by Graham Reznick. The three-man staff of a boutique ad firm leave their Brooklyn home base and head to a rural campsite to toss around ideas for a new campaign for a household cleaning product. What begins as a low-pressure brainstorming session becomes a horrifying nightmare where the borders between reality and imagination, sanity and madness, are re-drawn or erased completely. Director Reznick moves things along slowly at first, with few traditional moments of terror. He backloads the horror and makes the viewer wait for it by creating a feeling of unease, laying the groundwork for the fireworks in the final reel. I was reminded of several films -- "The Hills Have Eyes," "The Evil Dead," and "Un Chien Andalou" -- though "I Can See You" has a unique quirkiness all its own. Special features include a behind-the-scenes featurette, deleted scenes, and cast and crew audio commentaries. Also included is the 3-D short (yes, those glasses are included) "The Viewer," shot entirely from the perspective of an accused killer facing interrogation. Like "I Can See You," "The Viewer" evokes genre clichés only to subvert them.

Graham Reznick's "I Can See You" is not the resurrection of the horror genre, as critics from the Village Voice have so grandstandingly claimed; it is, however, a fun tour de force into a psychic zone that many people will indeed have to watch a movie (this one?) to experience.

The linear plot really doesn't matter too much. Three "ad men"-- the contemptible, snakey Doug (Duncan Skiles) , the..strange Richards, looking like an ad himself for a return to 70's apparel, and the robotic Kimble. Kimble is sorta like every person you've ever met in your life with no personality and, strangely enough, a girlfriend who has plenty (Neal Jonas).

The three go camping to brainstorm for new ideas to represent their moutwashing product. The whole thing is a bit incongrous: these three actors, obviously green, are art house hipsters trying to act like businessmen (not really though: it's barely concealed.) This adds, however, to the disorienting atmosphere which is at first darkly comical and then becomes sinister in a way which is difficult to articulate. If Luis Bunuel and David Lynch had collaborated on how a man's psyche can breakdown during stress, *perhaps* this would have emerged. Rebellion against the Daddy figure plays a big part in Richards' serious breakdown (the scene in the lake with hippie girl Sonia is perhaps the most effective).

The chief flaw with this noble endeavor is that it is TOO MUCH Lynch. I don't know if the gang had been smoking j's and repeatedly watching Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive repeatedly or not, but it sure seems that way sometimes. Coming with a set of three D goggles and an entertaining short "interrogation" film, this is well worth the watch if you'd enjoy the brain matter of every tweaked filmmakers smattered together with a sprinkle of acid here and there. I did.

I have to say, this is one of the most challenging reviews I've had to tackle. I've put it off for a time, to give this film a real chance, and to ensure I'd wrapped my head around it as much as possible. That said, I have to disagree with most reviews, in that I don't think this is a movie you either love or hate - I'm, frankly, somewhere in the middle, for better or worse.

First, let's knock out the easy part: it's currently free on Amazon Prime, so (provided you're a Prime customer) you're not going to lose a penny taking a chance on this one - had I paid for it, I might be more included to review this more harshly...maybe. Yes, it's that difficult to assess as a film. But, let's set aside the price of admission and just get to the film... here we go...

I have to say, had I not been "warned" that this was a "horror" film by the Amazon categorization, I could easily have passed through almost the entire experience not knowing it might fall into that category. Thriller... maybe. But, what this definitely is, is a psychological journey. This is where most reviewers drop off the radar as far as tolerating this film. It's a near-psychedelic art house style journey that, frankly, lost me many times along the way. Yet, I kept coming back to it, and have now seen it twice, all the way through.

In the end, I have to give the filmmakers credit for bringing something novel to the screen, as this is certainly not like any film I've seen (I can't quite call this a "movie", as the term doesn't feel right for this one). Also, the fact that it kept bringing me back obviously means it got my attention and kept it, ultimately.

For me, I did value the experience.

Wild beautiful ride in this good, maybe great, indie horror film. Starts slow, but worth the wait. NO ZOMBI DISCLAIMER: Surprised me with beauty and depth, and was 100% free of zombification, were-animalification, vampirification, slipknot knockoffs, and puppetry.

Big rewards for those into gorgeous psychedelia. Another reward is a back story disguised as sensuous arthouse inquiry into how the mind works under the influence of advertising...and other stuff that I won't describe, because that would constitute Spoilage.

Digital photo artifacts plague the quest that takes buddies-turned-startup dudes looking for ad campaign inspiration into the woods of Upstate NY. What's happening in the photos they desperately need so they don't lose their only major ad account? Is it micorhyzomes ['shroom tentacles]making all the mischief? Bad lens? Searching for Nature memes to promote a household product, we follow the four friends on a visually gorgeous descent into the psychic landscape that slips in and out of the green and black leaves and stones of the physical landscape, all courtesy of more than one "unreliable narrator" .

If you've never been to a film festival, never had college friends in art school or film school, never taken psychedelics, never watched things go horribly wrong on a camping trip, see this film anyway, so you get the chance in one single great little movie to catch up on all those vanishing rites of passage for a vanishing middle America that rarely breaks the tether of mobile devices, rarely leaves the couch or the game console to do anything real or interesting.

BTW, if this long review feels praise saturated, I must say there is some bad, hammy acting by one of the main characters. I don't think it can be accounted for.
