Editorial Reviews

A man regains consciousness at the bottom of a cave, with no concept of how he arrived there, nor any idea who the dead man is at his side. Only one thing is certain - he has to escape the menacing creature that s pursuing him. His journey back to the surface takes him through a cemetery - like world that's been abandoned by a mysterious organization called Eden Log.

Format:Blu-ray
Ages ago when I was in high school I wrote an extremely abstruse short story for an English class that was riddled with references that no one could decipher except for myself. I thought it was oh-so-clever, a mini Finnegan's Wake. When after reciting it I was presented with a room of blank stares I proudly went about explaining the symbolism. No one cared. I realized then that if one wants to create both a successful and weird/obscure/dissonant story, at least include a layer that is accessible to the casual reader. Eden Log doesn't make such an attempt.

If an interminably long-feeling movie centered around an amnesiac man groping around in near darkness in an environment filled with broken plastic junk, tubes-n-wires, and columns of tree roots whilst pursued by cheesy looking humanoid monsters sounds appealing then this movie is for you!

The movie is about a not-too-distant world where energy is harvested from an enormous tree. The "power plant" (haha - cute) named Eden Log is a secret subterranean facility where columns of tree root are exposed for study, experimentation, and work associated with energy generation. Eden Log is populated by human subjects, mutants, technical staff, and a militaristic guard. Humans are intravenously given sap from this special tree which does (2) things: 1) creates a symbiotic relationship between plant and human wherein both species develop a biological understanding of the other and 2) humans are subsequently infected during sap exposure and mutated into dumb humanoid monsters that are then boxed and suspended in the tree canopy. The tree generates energy while digesting the subjects. Things would be dandy except that there is a revolt among the Eden Log population forcing an intervention by the militaristic guard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Transcending the Muck of Mediocrity May 23, 2009
Format:DVD
After reading reviews of Eden Log, and after seeing the movie myself, I agree that you either love it or hate it. There is little room for a middle of the road reaction to this one. As with so many others, it's all about what you expect and appreciate from movies that break the mold of formula and predictability.

I tend to be more in love with the movie for its uniqueness above all else. In a world where everything has already been done, making the newest of movies a clichéd rehash of something seen before, this movie goes all out to avoid those pitfalls, becoming something refreshingly new. Of course, the inescapable and limited themes (man vs. man, man vs. nature, man vs. himself, etc.) are there, but that's where the familiarities end.

I must stress, however, that creating something new these days also involves a large amount of courage to create what can largely be disliked. The director and writer of this movie had some serious courage, for sure. Eden Log is incoherent much of the time, defying most attempts to make any sense of the plot through the better part of its running time. However, any astute viewer will quickly realize and appreciate the fact that this movie is confusing by intention rather than by chance or failure. Of course, I'm not suggesting that a movie can be good merely because it is confusing. There is, I think, in this movie, order and meaning to be discovered, with enough patience and thought, within all the chaos and confusion. Yes, from the very beginning, the viewer is offered a most unique puzzle to be solved.

The viewer is introduced to the main character in the pulsing bright light of an otherwise pitch-black cavern. As for where this dark place is, no one can possibly know at this point.

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING: SPOILERS. July 25, 2011
Format:DVD
Why is this movie being compared to Pandorum? No similarity whatsoever except that both have mutants. Pandorum was exciting, disturbing, and had a great ending. This movie is none of the above. It starts with a flashing camera sequence that goes on for about 7 minutes and is likely to give you a migraine. Then we get darkness, jerky camera, and more darkness. The movie is only 98 minutes long, yet by the time it ended I felt like I'd spent five hours in front of the TV. Five very long, dark, and confusing hours.

Yes, it's atmospheric and surreal and all that. And that's all it is. The main idea in a nutshell is: humans bad, trees good. Corporations are arrogant and evil and must die. Heck, humans in general are arrogant and evil and must die... The plot is all over the place. The setting is too dark to appreciate. The characters are unsympathetic and unrealistic. For example, at some point the main character runs into a female survivor... And rapes her. Huh?.. Oh, wait. Right. It's to show just how evil we humans are. Unlike those nice, nice trees we abuse. (Except for the little fact that rapists are mentally unstable people, don't represent normal human behavior, or the majority of humans).

The ending is every radical environmentalist's wet dream: our hero has a "revelation" and condemns the entire humankind to death by letting us all be devoured by a giant tree. This finale is shown in a pretty, sparkling way with pretty music playing, which, I'm guessing, is supposed to signify a happy end... I guess if you believe the garbage these filmmakers seem to believe, then it is a happy end to a great movie. But if you have more faith in the human race than that, not to mention if you expect better storytelling and character development from your movies, then it's a horrible ending to a horrible, ill-conceived, and poorly-executed waste of celluloid.

This movie was disjointed and made no sense. I had no idea what was going on pretty much the entire time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dark and boring
I waited, and waited for action. A very dark movie and seems to be going nowhere. I didn't watch very much of it. Didn't care for it all.

Movie was ok but it was way to dark visually. At times it was really hard to figure out what the heck was going on.

2.0 out of 5 stars Strange and hard to follow
This was one strange movie. Dark and depressing. low budget monsters, sets shrouded in darkness so detail could be skipped. Not very good.

Silly movie that I did not enjoy at all. I am sure it had a message but it was lost on me.

1.0 out of 5 stars not that compelling
A lot of wandering around in the dark. Story line progresses in stops and starts. you end up wondering why your watching this movie as much as wondering where the guy is going.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incomprehensible
I gave up on it about half way. The effects consisted mainly of not enough light to see anything. What I could see made no sense.
