Editorial Reviews

The Pascal family has it all-- wealth, power, privilege-- but their lives change forever when their daughter disappears one night while running. She mysteriously returns a year later with no memory of what happened. Haunted by nightmares and strange visions that encroach upon her waking hours, Marianne struggles to resume normal life. The picture-perfect world the family built starts to unravel as she gets closer to discovering that truth lies somewhere between life and death.

I found the movie to be suspenseful, although I guessed the outcome half way through. It was a movie that could be called "supernatural", but basically it was about the corruption of the soul. Nothing hair raising, just a character study of a well to do family that was bankrupt where it counts the most. Some family members were rather nasty. The acting was pretty good, but I would not actually buy the movie. Renting it was the best choice for me anyway.

TRUE NATURE ---a really weak title by the way --- is a slow moving tale of retribution that ultimately suffers from its lethargy and predictability.
In a rather condensed nutshell, the plot follows a young girl who vanishes one night and shows uo a year later, not knowing where she's been. Thanks to some early hints, it's fairly obvious where the movie's heading. The sole recognizable actor is Law & Order;s Dr. Olivet (Carolyn McCormick) who plays the victim's over-protective mother. The overall performances are typical of this kind of flick and it does manage to hold your attention although its abrupt predictable ending is disappointing. Rent, don't buy!

Not bad but could have given a little more insight as to the reasons why or how. Kept me interested but slightly confused during the movie, I suspected the correct person right away but they threw me a curve ball and I like that in a movie.

Definitely more of a suspense thriller than a horror film "True Nature" has some chilling moments albeit a predictability where you'll find yourself figuring much of it out far too early.

Independent films have a special place in my heart and I imagine if you're reading this review - yours as well. I applauded the effort and it's always refreshing to watch a little gem of a film that wasn't cranked out of the big Hollywood movie machine.

True nature has much of the above working in it's favor.

Director Patrick Steele who has previously only directed shorts steps up to the plate of a full length picture with a definitive style and competence. The production value is dark and eerie and I would add that the performances are quite stellar and rise above whatever flaws lay in the script.

Stand outs are Carolyn McCormic as the mother and Marianne Porter as the daughter who let's just say isn't quite right. Despite it's flaws it's an admirable thriller and although chances are you won't feel the need to sleep with the lights on "True Nature" is a creepy way to spend an hour and a half.

Great spooky movie. I started watching this waaay too late at night and I really wanted to go to bed but I couldn't tear myself away. I had to know what happened to Marianne. The big reveal did not disappoint.

Different.... In a good way. I would recommend this movie. I can usually figure out the out come of a movie mostly because the out come is pretty much the same as other movies, but this one was a little different.

This movie keep me on the edge of my seat. I found myself wishing I had waited for someone to watch the movie with since I kept jumping out of my skin. Marianne was great. You could see her love for her father yet I could not figure out his feelings for her. I really never did. I changed my mind several times about their relationship. All characters did a great job but Marianne was outstanding. I plan to watch the movie again when I have someone available to watch with me.

Some people here and on Netflix give this movie low marks -- claiming that it is both boring and confusing. Ignore them. This is a great indie movie!

The film isn't told in a linear fashion. So, you will get a lot of flashbacks. But you will soon become comfortable with the structure, and when that happens, the movie becomes nothing but suspense all the way through. The only bad part -- and this is minor -- was the rushed period of time during the year when the daughter was missing. But, by reducing the time on this issue, the director was able to keep the film at a reasonable length.

The acting is very good - even if the characters are a bit one-dimensional. The lead actress shows versatility; she is not always the petulant, needy girl. I wish they would have used the boyfriend character a bit more. The actor was very capable.

As the movie winds down, it becomes a bit gory - but not too much. Also, while the ending does not answer every question, we find out why she went missing (which is the most important issue). It is easy and interesting to fill in the blanks with imagination.

If you like suspense with a supernatural twist and do not mind working with a flashback structure, you will like this movie. I would not describe the plot as complicated to understand or as confusing (as others have done). Maybe some people just aren't that savvy or do not watch closely enough.

I am a harsh critic. So these four stars mean a lot. WATCH IT.
