Strange love triangle in a post apocalyptic world
November 24, 2017
I don't know if this movie is supposed to take place in some alternate, post apocalyptic future or an alternate dimension, but I liked it because it was so different from standard studio fare. The film contains only three characters--a man (Aaron Stanford), a woman (Louisa Krause), and a mysterious man that lives in a pool (Doug Jones). The man and woman have been wandering the post apocalyptic landscape for years but come upon an abandoned hotel. They stop over at the hotel and enjoy "luxuries" like cooked food, shaving, and bathing with soap. They even begin a romantic relationship. But they both encounter a mysterious man lying motionless at the bottom of a drained pool, and he brings tension between the man and woman as he slowly comes back to life. A strange kind of love triangle develops among them. Don't expect everything to be neatly answered in this movie. It purposely leaves the audience to come up with answers on their own. It's an odd little indie gem of a movie, combining aspects of drama, post apocalyptic sci fi, and horror. The three leads work well with each other and give solid performances.
