Product Description

Seth and Jonah are murderous twins who share an evil kinship. Damned from the moment of their births, the brothers possess a gruesome talent for telekinesis – a power they use in the most horrific ways imaginable. As their fellow students meet gory fates, the local law enforcement begins to suspect the twins’ connection to some depraved murders. What started as a jealous rage escalates into a supernatural showdown – pitting brother against brother, evil against evil.

Amazon.com

Surely twins will someday get their own musical comedies, or sweet indie romances, or gritty cop procedurals. But for now, when it comes to movies, twins are destined for creepy horror. Seconds Apart understands this very well, and its unnerving teenage brothers fit neatly into a long line of cinematic Gemini whose unhealthy connection with each other is stronger than any they have with the outside world. At first glance, Jonah and Seth (played by real-life twins Edmund and Gary Entin) appear more suited to a teen boy band than a horror picture, but in fact they are embarked on a lifelong experiment: use their shared telekinetic powers in order to feel something, anything, of what other people feel. The results can be murder. Seconds Apart gets off to an effectively unexpected start (a fraternity-party drinking game turns into Russian roulette, for reasons we can't immediately see), and locks into a moody groove from there. Unlike many low-budget horror offerings, it doesn't go for a quick-cut style; rather, director Antonio Negret aims for a more classical form, with a muted color palette and a somber tone. Sometimes the results are a little too close to a slickly dressed TV commercial for comfort, but much of it works pretty well, and the Entin twins are eerily good (Samantha Droke also does better-than-required work as a schoolmate who manages to draw something human from one of the brothers). The detective on the case is ably played by Orlando Jones, but his personal trauma gets a little tiresome, and drags the movie away from its main source of creepiness. Keep expectations low, and this one provides satisfactory chills--a double dose, you might say. --Robert Horton

Surprisingly creative take on the well worn story of youngsters with extra-normal evil qualities e.g. pleasure in forcing people to kill themselves primarily through tele-hallucination. Yes, script and directing were a bit rushed and unpolished to the point of plodding and plot confusion all of which was rescued by some solid acting and entertaining twists and misdirections.

Seconds Apart is the third of the After Dark films I have seen this year and so far the best.
Orlando Jones is perfect in his role as A detective who lost his wife in a fire as are the twins played by Gary and Edmund Entin whom you might have seen as the strange twins in the Rest Stop movies.

The story came together beautifully regardless of a couple of plot holes or unanswered questions.
The story was fast moving and interesting with great acting and a couple of good kill scenes.

It has some good effects and a bit of gore, although not not a gore fest but a psychological thriller that has two stories going on,one being with the twins and one being with Orlando Jones' character, they intertwine beautifully.

A girl comes into the picture and charms one of the twins and that throws a monkey wrench into the plans of the more evil of the twins,their powers only work when both are willing so it becomes a battle of wits.Who will win? will either win?
There are a couple of twists that I didn't see coming.
I was very pleased with this effort and was engrossed up until the very last second.

The story was original enough, though I wished for a bit more exposition on the experiment and the twins' history.
The guys playing the twins are great, and there is a weird mood/atmosphere running through the film that makes it stand out from most others. This is one of After Dark's better efforts.

Although several years old, shouldn't be missed. Hopefully you'll find it the same way I did...from reading a review from another customer who tends to lean towards the same type - this may not be your cup of tea. I'm just now discovering the "After Dark" & "Horrorfest" series, which, for the most part have been fabulous - quality films, creative stories, decent actors and big on thrills and chills. I'm fairly new to Amazon and I've learned to rely on review to make selections. Now for the movie.....

SECONDS APART was creepy and I love it when a story surprises me. Man, oh man, this one got me good-sure didn't see that coming!. The story I THOUGHT I was watching was great but then.....throw in the twists and seriously folks, so good. The twins were spot on with their performances as the detective and the love interest. This movie kept my attention throughout and is recommended. Not much on blood and guts, more on the let's see how creative we can make this one die. The twins' project definitely goes off track and things go from bad to worse - don't want to give too much away so I'll CUT and IT'S A WRAP.

First of all, this film is not for everyone. If you are expecting a "slasher" flick, then this is not for you. But if you want a movie that makes you stop and think a little, and one that boasts some good acting performances, this might be right up your alley. The Entin twins are spectacularly creepy in their roles as sinister forces of evil with telekinetic powers, and Orlando Jones is brilliant as the detective trying to solve the puzzle that the two twins leave behind. There are a few spots toward the middle of the film where it kind of drags on, but the ending makes it worthwhile to keep watching. The clashing forces that occur when one of the twins becomes distracted by a beautiful young woman is really fun to watch, and Jones is very convincing as he wrestles not only with seemingly unstoppable forces throughout, but also a few demons of his own.

Usually the After Dark films don't have a plot this deep or contain performances this good, so if you are looking for a little change of pace, this is certainly a film that might interest you. Most movies in this genre tend to be re-heated versions of films that have already been made, but this film at least attempts to go for something more original, and quite frankly, it's all the better for it.

This film has all the ingredients of a really good psychological thriller: good acting, the evocative atmosphere of moss-covered Louisiana trees, a cleanly enucleated color palette, and the always fascinating premise of sinister twins. But it doesn't mix these ingredients quite right. It ends up with something that's a little too much of a hodgepodge and not enough of a proper three course meal.

I had hoped that the Director and the Entin twins would fill in some of the gaps by voicing their own interpretations in the DVD Commentary. But no, in the Commentary, the three mostly chat about the technical and interpersonal aspects of making the movie, rather than offering any insights into the movie's themes. So the viewer is left with a lot of unanswered questions.

What exactly is the twins' "program?"

What are they attempting to "feel?" Is it their victims' terror? However, that can't quite be right, because some of their victims act robotically, without any gratifying emotional awareness.

What is the meaning of the twist ending? You might think you grasp it, but then when you start to unravel the logic of it, you find it could be explained in several different ways, or else it defies explanation.

But the most nagging question of all - why is the Detective smoking Marvel cigarettes, a brand that was popular during WWII, but that was discontinued in the 60's?

Still, this is an engrossing, treacherous double feature of a film with some brilliant visual metaphors for the eerie synchronicity of the twins - such as the two pieces of bread popping out of the toaster.
