Editorial Reviews

On an otherwise ordinary night, the young Ian Stone encounters a mysterious creature and is forced into the path of an oncoming train. Rather than facing certain death, Ian finds himself reborn into a new life that feels strangely familiar. After his second death, it becomes apparent that Ian is being hunted by an evil presence, and will be forced to die every day until he can solve the mystery of his own life.

Format: Theatrical Release
"You know those days when everything seems wrong?" asks Ian Stone (Mike Vogel), an American living in England. "This is one of those days." As he sits in his car, he looks into the eyes of his girlfriend, Jenny (Christina Cole), feeling confused and frustrated--he's part of his college's Hockey team, and that rainy night, he cost them the game because of a faulty timer stuck on 5:03. After a few moments, he drops Jenny off and begins the drive home. At a railroad crossing, he sees a body lying in the middle of the road--he goes to check it, only to be attacked. The body is not a body at all, but rather a black, gaseous form with long limbs that shift into pointy objects. It immediately pushes Ian onto the railroad tracks, just as a train passes through. Only then does Ian suddenly wake up in an office building, sitting behind a desk with mounting paperwork. It's currently 5:03, and the boss wants a presentation ready by 6:00.

These are the opening segments of "The Deaths of Ian Stone," a taut, mysterious, and ultimately disappointing film that pits the title character against a slew of alternate realities. He enters each new reality by somehow dying in the previous one, and he always enters by waking up at 5:03. Clearly, this is a fascinating idea, and up until about halfway, it works wonderfully. This is the point at which the tension builds itself up, with very little explained; basically, we can gather information only as Ian gathers it. Initially, not much is known apart from the recurring image of a clock displaying 5:03. We do see that he lives in London with his girlfriend, Medea (Jaime Murray), and that he's beginning to remember things that supposedly never took place.

I think this was one of the better After Dark movies in the 2nd year batch, it certainly kept my interest throughout and that's more than I can say about some of the other movies in this "event."

This may not be a true horror film but it has enough elements to fit into the genre, more than Borderland or Tooth and Nail! The story revolves around a man that keeps getting killed (is it a dream or reality?) and then wakes up to face death again. Every day this cycle is happening and there is a girl that keeps showing up in his many "lives."

The film has an interesting premise and it was a lot better than I had anticipated it being. A horror groundhog day is not a bad way to put it but it's a little more than that. There are some very intense scenes that almost leave you claustrophobic wondering if the protagonist is going to be able to ever get out of this ongoing cycle of death.

The film is not overly bloody but there are some "painful" moments that the central character has to suffer through. Others here have given a deeper synopsis of the plot but part of the fun in this movie is learning what is going on, so I will not go into any further detail. I think this movie was fun and entertaining and it kept my interest, while it's not the greatest movie in the world it is a fun ride for 90 minutes no matter how implausible it might be. If you want a rollercoaster ride this is a good one to check out as the action really never stops as the main character slowly unravels the mystery.

As far as After Dark...8 films to die for...this is definitely the best one that I have seen. Many of the others are merely average to below average. Ian Stone however breaks thats trend and for my tastes is a A-..B+ movie. Effects are outstanding and this plays more of the Sci-Fi-Fantasy with a pinch of horror.
Women...what do you do. You cant live with one and you cant kill her but she can kill you...over and over. I thought this would be something I turned on and fell asleep to at about 2 in the morning. However within a few (10) minutes the story begins to move right along and does not let up. It never did drag at any point..in my opinion.
I went into this show knowing nothing about it other than the title. This will spoil it.....but it is not merely a slice and dice. There is a other wordly feel to it which is exceptional...immortal beings that feed on fear however a few of them have a drug problem. That problem is that they discovered that the fear they feed on is most potent when their victim is dying. So instead of parasites that feed they become predators...living in the shadows..altering reality.

I streamed this off Netflix then I turned around and bought it as it has replay value..a nicely done movie with belivable performances from the cast.

I recommend this video. Horror films can be quick and dirty these days, relying on special effects and mood music alone, while a monotone boring script with dull cliche acting clings on for dear life. There are not many films in the past few years in this genre that I can truly recommend, but I do suggest this one. The unfolding events held my interest though the entire film, and I found that I actually cared what happened to the characters in this movie. The script was above average, the acting was well done, and the special effects did not rule the movie but rather enhanced it.

The plot is interesting. A man has memory flashbacks of events that don't seem to match with his current life. He feels out of place. He knows something is wrong but can't figure out what it is. This movie is primarily about a man in a desperate situation trying to remember his past, trying to recover lost memories, and trying to avoid being murdered by a supernatural stalker who wants him dead. But Ian Stone can't die. The stalker murders him, and Ian rewakes in a new life, new events surround him, and again he tries to remember who he is. This repeats several times, until slowly he begins to remember, with the aid of a stranger who keeps appearing to him..., who he is, and what happened to cause all of this.

The video worked well, no problems at all with the disks, audio and video were perfect.

- Mike S.
