For instance, the camera rarely comes off the tripod, rather than shake like crazy, which has become so boring. And rather than a bunch of unknown 20 year-olds stuck in a cabin, this film boasts top-notch performances from top talent in their 30s! You want blood? This film isn't for you. It tastefully and respectfully scares you without gore. And, believe it or not, there is a really good, solid love story amidst the fright!
Do you want to see something different, without stupid antics and cheap tricks? Watch THE PRESENCE...
The woman has come to her grandparents' cabin on a remote island to work. I'm not sure what her work is, but she spends a lot of time, it looks like, copying things out of a book. She spends her days and nights alone, in silence, coming here for the peace and quiet. There's no electricity on the island, her bathroom is an outhouse. The cabin is very nice, and incredibly cozy. I would love to spend a week there. It rains a lot, and it's chilly enough overall that she can keep a few fresh chickens in the shed out back and they'll be just fine. She seems to have a pretty sweet setup going on.
There is, however, the ghost that stands silently by and watches everything she does. Shane West gives just about the most wooden performance he's ever given in his life, but this time I think it's on purpose, as his character never utters a word, rarely shows an emotional connection, but he does a boat load of acting with his eyes, and while I think he overplayed it a few times, for the most part, I liked his character.
Then the woman's boyfriend, the man (no, they don't have names), shows up. They're obviously in love but you can tell immediately she doesn't welcome the company. She doesn't tell him to leave, and puts on a show of being happy he's there, but it's pretty obvious she came here for a reason, and company wasn't it.Read more ›

This quiet and beautiful film tells the story of a woman who wants and needs love, but is understandably afraid to let herself trust and be truly vulnerable again. Read morePublished 18 months ago by fran

This movie was hilarious. I don't know what is supposed to be happening, but the gay ghost encounter had me in tears. Two thumbs down.Published on June 27, 2014 by You or mE
