Product Description

Detective Paul Grunning is trying to piece together his fractured life. When a routine disturbance at the Ulster home turns into an unexplainable death, all he has worked for will be tested. An ailing, addicted cop, Grunning (James Macdonald), is haunted by his own bad choices. He investigates the mysterious house, only to find shifting testimonies and perplexing new clues in every room. Sifting through the erratic claims of Rachel (Crystal Mantecon), the seductive grad student, Emma, the victim's wife, and Andrew, a bitterly resentful sone, Grunning uncovers motives but no real answers. Ultimately, Grunning must navigate a fractured reality and his own insecurities to find what's real.

Review

James McDonald is a character actor who has had guest roles on such shows as Lie To Me, CSI: Miami and In Plain Sight. Last year he had the starring role in a strange but intriguing mystery called Fissure. In Fissure, McDonald plays Paul Grunning, a cop who doesn t seem to be all there. We get to see him at the start of the film in some kind of self-help support group. Fissure is an intense psychological drama. I think that most viewers will react as I did; that Grunning has really lost it. Was there really a murder or not? If so, who was the killer and why? And if not, how was Grunning going to get right with himself and the world? At first I was ready to dismiss this film as so much pop psych mumbo jumbo. But by the end, I was both intrigued and entertained by the twists and turns that the film had taken. For a good murder mystery / psychological drama, Fissure is well worth watching. --BVS Reviews

Fissure is an excellent movie with a lot of second guessing yourself. I loved it! This is the perfect movie to get a bunch of friends together and then have a great time discussing afterwards. Is this a ghost story, is the main protagonist crazy and why, or what else could be wrong. Following all the clues to see where they lead is a quiet but suspenseful movie that leads people on a crazy mystery. I really can't say anything about the story line itself. Why should I give you an advantage? The acting was great, the set design and even the lighting very important and very well done. This really was a difficult subject to capture on film and Russ Pond did a fantastic job. I highly recommend this movie. In fact my sixteen year old is telling all his friends to watch it and it's not a high action film. It just captures the imagination.

This is a very convoluted sci-fi movie with a much different twist on it than I have ever seen before, and it is so well done; especially the CGI, that it is spellbinding for a low-budget Indie production and proves how imagination can blend into a story-line to keep the audi9ence deeply involved right tup to and including the rolling of the credits! Good Job!

This definitely a low budget film, but the acting was good. The story line was a little sketchy, but considering the plot I can see how that would happen. All in all I gave it a four. I'm a Prime member so it cost me nothing to watch the movie. If I had paid full price, I would feel a little ripped off. So, if you watch Prime movies for free, go for it. If you have to pay you may be disappointed.

Interesting. Reminded me of a Twight Zone show. It started a little slow thought.

Very well done! Amazing what can be done on so called "Low Budget".

I suppose those of us in the viewing audience might need some knowledge of ground breaking work in the quantum scientific field to get an inkling of what may be going on in the initial part of this murder mystery.

There has long long been speculation within the Science Fiction genre concerning the nature of time and assumed paradox relating to manipulation of it. The many worlds/Universes Theory came out of this Sci Fi exploration. Simply put...there are many Universes existing at the same time. More...new ones are being created every moment via our very own personal decisions when faced with situations at any particular time. World without number or end..."Many Mansions"...Imagine That... Absolutely anything and everything is possible. Even better...if you have the imagination and visualization skills and the positive emotional energy to fuel it...you can change and/or create anything. This last is the final implication that the modern Religion of Science is terrified to explore...Further, there likely is active discouragement being employed to block any action toward this end... Yet, it has already been done many times over the ages. There is NO DEFICIT in everyone being trained to this knowledge and natural skill.

Speculation upon this phenomena began amongst Einstein and his colleagues over a hundred years ago. Einstein knew that his Theory of Relativity was false...but could not explain the phenomena that disproved it...so the rest is history.

This Detective, doing what they are trained to do, finally figures it all out...and also "Intends" to change a few things in his past with what the gathered facts imply...

Well done! Actually left me thinking at first it was another haunting so I was pleasantly surprised with something different. Would make a pretty neat series.
