This movie is the story of Kate, a young woman with her own company, a troubled relationship with her ex and otherwise a perfect life. One night she dreams that one of her friends get murdered, and when she the next day is called by the police about the murder, which really took place her nightmare begins. It seams that exact doubles of all of Kate's friends show up to murder them, Kate to have a evil twin hellbent on killing her.
Now this might sound like another pod people film, there have been allot of those mimicking Invasion of the Body Snatchers, however the copies here do not replace the originals, they just kill them. The plot is bizarre and no real answers are given in the end, however strange as it is I was drawn to the plot non the less. Many movies which is left without a proper explanation feels unended, I feel cheated somewhat, but here I feel that I have gotten a complete story, even if the film leaves the viewer with more questions than answers.
Artifacts is a hard movie to review as it looks more like some amateur film project than something actually made by a studio. It is obvious that the film is made on the cheap, there is few effects and the picture quality is lower than that of a VHS, meaning it is a grainy mess. The acting is okey but it is not outstanding. However the music, and especially the sound the copies makes as they near their victims help very well to set the mood. I would say that with this film the people behind it have done allot with what little budget they got.
The movie is strange, it have more flaws than i can count, it lacks finesse in every aspect, but I think there was some love put into making this film. This is more a paranormal mystery film than horror as there is few scares, and I rather enjoyed it. I was pulled in by the mood of the film and enjoyed the 80 minutes or so it lasted. If you like a bit strange horror movies with little gore but a somewhat original plot then you might like this one, but know what you are getting, this is more your movie buff neighbor making a film with his buddies than Hollywood, but for what it is I think it is worth watching.
