Editorial Reviews

Her mother died in childbirth, and she always felt responsible for the tragedy. When her father disappeared, her grandparents raised her. As she got older, her sense of guilt grew deeper. And on the night of her 21st birthday, Celia (Monica Keena of FREDDY VS. JASON) is drugged, raped and dies of an accidental overdose at a wild college frat party. But for some, death is only the beginning: Trapped in a netherworld between sanctuary and damnation, Celia must now battle the demons — including hordes of horrific Soul Eaters — that prowl the Afterlife. Is the spirit of her recently deceased grandfather (Tim Thomerson of TRANCERS) trying to lure her to an eternity of suffering? Can her guardian angel (David Anders of ALIAS ) safely lead her to the other side? And for a young woman caught in limbo, is there any way to go towards the light when your soul is LEFT IN DARKNESS?

Customer Reviews

You know, that sort of thing.
Robert Beveridge
Not the worst of the recent spate of horror flicks, but not one of the best either.
Michael Butts
The acting is even pretty good and the casting is superb.

The story is really not that complicated and convoluted. A young girl meets an imaginary friend who would be there with her as she grows up. When she goes to a party at the age of 21 she is drugged, raped, and killed. But she doesn't go to heaven or hell, more like a world in between (something akin to the movie Jacob's Ladder) where there are angels and demons waiting to either help her or destroy her. What she goes through is a spirited battled with creatures that would possess the soul, ravage the soul, and enslave the soul. At first you want to tell the main character to stop running around like a chicken with a head cut off. But I digress, by the midpoint of the story, you are really drawn into the characters and the mystical and horrific world the young woman's soul is in. While this is not a Christian film, I would have to say that there are some overtones that could be considered "Christian" in some sense...such as the idea of spiritual warfare, the idea of there being demons and devils that want to tempt you, torture you, and bring you down to the ground; while there is a LIGHT that draws you toward it ("God" in a sense) that wants to bring you into salvation. Again, let me reiterate, this is not a Christian movie but it does have a lot of interesting overtones that really need to be examined and considered. I really enjoyed this movie (the movie isn't perfect, but I feel sure that it should be given five stars). I think that if you enjoy horror and if you enjoy intelligent horror even more so, then you'd get a real pleasure out of watching this movie.

I saw this film on the Zone Horror channel a few nights back and was pleasantly surprised at how good it actually was.

Basically the plot sees a young girl - Celia(played by Monica Keenan) going to a party. There she gets slipped a date rape drug, gets raped, and dies as a result of overdosing on this drug. Coming too on another plane which is somewhere between Heaven and Hell, she is horrified to learn that she is dead. Worse this plane is full of zombie like 'Soul Eaters' who like nothing more than to snack out on the souls of the recently deceased if they can catch them... Among these soul eaters is the spirit of her deceased grandfather (Tim Thomerson - Near Dark, Trancers) who attempts to devour her soul by at first trying to trick her. Luckily for the deceased girl, there is a sanctuary of light created around the deceased which lasts for a few hours, and this light keeps these creatures at bay. However, the deceased can step out of it, and this light has the disconcerting habit of moving around every so often too.

Also on this strange plane of existence, Celia encounters a young man (played by David Anders) who appears to be a Guardian Angel of sorts and offers her help and advice in how to deal with the immediate danger and what she should do on a more long term basis. She also meets the souls of her mother and grandmother, and both also give her advice as to what she should do.

Having to make difficult and potentially damning choices, often in the heat of the moment, makes for a very difficult and dangerous experience, indeed. Just whose advice should Celia trust and are the beings that she encounters actually what they seem?

This is a tense and atmospheric little film with a very unusual setting and storyline which make it quite original in fact.

I actually quite enjoyed it and would recommend it to other viewers, wanting a horror film that is a little different.

I had never heard of this movie before I picked it up at the video store. It definately is not the greatest movie ever made, but not a waste of time. The acting was sincere, if not great. The plot deals with a coed who goes to a frat party, gets drugged, raped and killed. It then becomes a story about where she is going to spend eternity and how she is going to get there. There are a couple predictable plot twists. Meeting her parents in the after life and her guardian angel and the soul eaters were all kind of hokey if given too much thought, but if you don't go too deeply into the flaws, you can enjoy it. All in all, I am okay with having watched it. Die hard fans of hard core horror will not like this one.

While this isn't a masterpiece, I had to speak up for this scrappy little flick. Real effort was put into a thought-provoking philosophical premise, and while there is unsubtle, talky exposition, there is also a lot of action. Plus if you liked watching Monica run around that Freddy film, you will be very happy. A few hard twists keep this from the cliche zone too. The loyal horror fan who is punch drunk from a thousand and one cauliflower eared cinematic palookas will shed grateful tears over this one.

This movie is a good horror thirller, has all the indgedients for a classic, the good girl who tradigally dies at a young age from a brutal rape after being drugged. The imagniary friend from her youth returns, but not as what you would want an imaginary friend to return as. A good feel for the purgatory world. The classic fight between good and evil for a soul. The acting is even pretty good and the casting is superb. This one is worth the money.

Celia (Monica Keena) has had an imaginary friend Donovan as a protector. Her mother died at child birth, dad ran off, raised by grandparents, major league guilt, etc. etc. On her 21st birthday Cecia goes to a frat party, is given a date rape drug and makes lots of friends she never knew. Her spirit awakens in a world akin to "Silent Hill" where she must combat "soul eaters" which are zombie like creatures who imitate her family and friends. Donovan (David Anders) is there to guide her, but somehow she doesn't trust anyone after been given a roofie, gang raped, left for dead and attacked by a zombie/Freddy version of her loving grandfather.

It was an interesting film and I recommend "Silent Hill" for those who like the quirkiness of a duo world. I didn't like the characters as much as I should have. Celia was a bit annoying even with the high beams on for most of the feature...I guess when you are cold in the afterlife.... Donovan was downright boring. Dialogue needed pizazz. Better than a lot of "B" horror films. Kudos for a unique script.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. Mild rape scene. Background wall photo nudity.
