Editorial Reviews

"Copley" - An unparalleled supernatural thriller.

Alex (David Sullivan - "Primer," "The Astronaut Farmer") and wife Heather have an idyllic life - a beautiful home surrounded by towering trees and even a secret garden - a perfect place to raise their daughter. Night falls, and the house comes un-alive. Spirits roam freely, and the young family is terrorized by ghostly relics from days past. The lines between reality and unreality blur until time itself loses meaning. Can the family survive? What happened at the Copley house? As the plot unfolds, this frenetic tale of terror, suspense and mystery keeps audiences guessing until the very end.

Recalling a time when fantastic storytelling and artistry were paramount, award-winning veteran television director Alexander Pikas helms this masterwork of independent filmmaking. Stunning visuals, a haunting score and a gripping plot line give "Copley" a look and feel that is truly unique in the supernatural thriller genre.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

A group of friends and myself had the pleasure of viewing about a half hour of first edit film when Heather Pikas came to visit us in Florida. Although it was only a short portion, several of the ladies were already shouting at the screen....'don't go there!!' Now finally I get to see the entire finished movie a couple of years later. Writer Robert Bloch would admire the twist in the plot as that was understated until the very end of the movie when it is all revealed. Though there are hints dropped along the way, but in such a fashion as to be subtle. Definitely a suspense movie on the level of the old Alfred Hitchcock television series - an entertaining mind-bender that will have you puzzling it over after the credits roll.

Technically it was well shot within the confines of their small home and Alex Pikas did a superb job getting the reactions he wanted from his wife Heather on screen (yes we heard from her how that was accomplished). Mr Pikas is noted for many award-winning television advertisements and with this independant film, it makes you wonder what he would accomplish given a finely tuned script and seasoned professionals.

For a low-budget independent film direct to DVD, this is a well-made DVD with the standard DVD menus complete with spooky music, etc. However, the film encoded on it leaves much to be desired. SPOILERS....

Overall, it was a quality production given the budget. If you've seen The Sixth Sense or The Others, the ultimate plot twist is no surprise. It was about 30 minutes into it (almost half-way through) that I realized that this film did not seem to be going anywhere (kinda like the miniseries Shogun) as the scenes really seemed to be stalling the action and the music was often overly dramatic. So, I was really hoping that a good twist was coming. I was let down.

Maybe I'm being thick, but I think the film fails to explain a few things. For example, what happened to the killer? In one scene, the old lady says she isn't selling; and in the next she's apparently decided to sell. What changed her mind? If the killer had control of the estate after the death of the old couple, why did he allow the sale to proceed if he really did not want to sell? So, what was the killer's M.O. after all? Real estate is probably just too complicated to be included or explained in such relatively simple and short feature films.
