A small town is afflicted with a rash of suicides. Beginning with a young man who shoots himself in front of his bewildered girlfriend, and continuing on to her, and on and on to anyone who is near the latest victim. A Christian girl named Lindsay is trying to make sense of these tragedies but is beset by the other affliction the town suffers, and that is the extreme religious views of its mega-church. Convinced the deaths stem from a local "witch" family, Lindsay's boyfriend Dylan leads the effort to first intimidate, and ultimately kill them off. Lindsay has to choose sides - devotion to the town's faith, or helping the boy whom the town is gunning for.

FROM WITHIN is one of the last of this year's 8 Films To Die For that I watched, and it's certainly one of the most polished. Acting is flawless, as is direction, cinematography, and, for the most part, writing. The story is coherent and follows a logical progression. And, it delivers plenty of chills along the way. In short, it has what most of the other films didn't have.

I do have two slight issues with the movie. The first is the fact that, chilling as it is, the bulk of the films scares are lifted almost directly from other films. You have the creepy girl with the hair covering her face, or the girl appearing in the TV, or the cheap After Effects shot of the sudden black-eyed demon face. The film also suffers from having THE BROKEN in the same festival this year, both films drawing heavily on mirrors and reflections attacking people. But, though these effects are lifted from other films, they are still employed very well here - the movie delivers plenty of great creep-out moments, even if they are familiar.

The only other issue I have is in the broadly stereotypical portrayal of extreme religion.

In my opinion, this latest series of films in the "After Dark Horrorfest" series is much better than their predecessors, and "From Within" continues that trend. The film is a cross between "Nightmare on Elm Street" and "The Grudge," with elements of revenge and a curse. The movie takes place in a small town, where so-called Christian zealots hold cult-like sway over many of the people, with one notable exception: a family of wiccans (for lack of a better term). In an event prior to the start of the movie, a woman was burned alive because the religious townspeople suspected her - without any real evidence - in the death of a child. Events are soon set in motion, resulting in a curse being placed upon the town for their evil and unjust act. The film is really worth a watch, and the end has a really good twist!

The acting isn't too bad for a lower-budge movie. Thomas Dekker, from "The Sarah Conner Chronicles," is one of the main actors in the film.

There are some stereotypes (ignorant, hypocritical, over-zealous Christians as well as the ever persecuted wiccans) used in the film, but I don't think that they detract from the film too much. Again, if you liked "Nightmare on Elm Street" and "The Grudge" or just movies about vengeful spirits and curses, then this is a good film to check out. Enjoy...

Very deep movie that you have to follow. Twist and turns and more than meets the eye. Liked it kept me entertained good acting and cinematography. Ok director I think it could have been faster paced when it was edited which the director should have insisted on. The plot was great as was the writing which tells the story and that is what made the movie along with the actors. Please watch.

I don't always get these After Dark Horrorfest movies but once in a while I do. A rash of suicides hit the small community of Grovetown, causing fear and panic among local residents. Keeping in mind that this is a town that is portrayed as super religious and those that don't attend church are heathens and should be destroyed. This is taking religious fervor to an extreme, I agree but for the movie necessary. When Lindsay defends the cast out boy Aidan she is branded as corrupted. It was a slow starter but you will get the idea of what is happening very quickly. I really enjoyed it and the cast was superb. Lindsay and Aidan were understated but still very relevant and the townsfolk that were the antagonists....scary. many secrets in this small town and we will hear them all.

"From Within" isn't all that successful as a horror movie, or even as a regular movie. It is, however, often times very interesting in its approach, shifting back and forth between a commentary on religious tolerance and a vengeance fable that pulls no punches regardless of denomination. It's interesting and problematic, because by the end of the film, the Godless pagans look just as guilty as the fundamentalist Christians. In other words, I no longer could determine which side represented good and which side represented evil. Maybe that's the point of this film: That religion is dangerous no matter what god you happen to pray to. Or maybe it has nothing to do with attacking any particular religion; maybe it's just a way to make the overused idea of supernatural forces wreaking havoc seem original.

Whatever. What I know for sure is that, even though "From Within" had some genuinely engaging moments, it still didn't quite live up to its potential. Consider the fact that it takes place one of those small Southern towns where the vast majority take faith in God a little too seriously; while effective as a plot device, the truth is that we've seen too many horror films about communities with frightening mob-like mentalities. There's also the fact that religion is generalized to the point of turning virtually everyone into a caricature. The only neutral character is a teenager named Lindsay (Elizabeth Rice), who seems to recognize that, in spite of her own faith, people should be allowed to worship as they see fit.

The story: A string of deaths are plaguing the God-fearing town of Grovestown.
