Definitely worth renting, better than I expected, a good ghost story with well-acted performances...

I would've given 4 stars, but decided to drop off one due to some notable and unnecessary distractions in the movie that I thought did not make sense having. For example, her makeup was always flawless throughout the entire movie. I mean, c'mon! Really?!?! And honestly, a bit over the top for a high school girl too! Don't get me wrong, I'm a male and definitely do appreciate female beauty just like any other guy, BUT the amount of focus and attention that was given to her bright red lips and bralessness on almost every camera perspective and scene was just not necessary. Having these kinds of distractions in this kind of movie just devalues the main story especially when the story is already good. And also takes away from acting performances and overall seriousness of the movie in my opinion. On the other hand, although it's not an oscar caliber, I definitely enjoyed watching it. It is worth renting if you enjoy watching ghost stories with some science twist...

Everyone loves a ghost story

I'm not a huge fan of Bella Thorne, but honestly everything about this movie was excellent. It was incredibly well written, it had a few twists that I don't think most people would see coming. More than anything I found myself thinking about it days later, it's an awesome movie to watch with other people and discuss. One of the best films I saw in 2018 and I had seen a lot.

Pretty good!

I don’t understand the hate on this movie. I like the premise and the acting was great. Little pieces of the plot fall together at the end and since this is a secular story, don’t expect some grand schemes with the information given at the end. The only thing that I could say somewhat irked me was Bella’s outfits - a white shirt with no bra and her probably-boyfriend over? Pretty sure most parents would say something. Doesn’t detract from the story, just was kind of eye-roll worthy. Otherwise I loved it!

Good premise, but unintelligent
Verified purchase
If you like movies about ghosts, death, or if you're a teenager, or especially if you loved the Leftovers, you might like this.

The premise was good. Frankly, it was the premise that kept me watching the whole time. I was curious what they were going to do with it.

However, the plot had so many elements to it which were stupid or unbelievable, that this movie ultimately felt like a waste of time. In retrospect, I don't think it was worth watching past the first 15 minutes. Additionally, the characters, while well acted, were dry and not very interesting. I don't think any of them really had much of a personality.

The horror element to this was decent. They did a good job with convincing you that the remnants were really there, and they did give me a bit of a creeped out feeling. There were a fair number of jump scares also, which while slightly annoying, were pretty effective.

I will try to get into some of the plot issues I had.
SPOILER ALERT!

1) The classroom scene of the "laws of remnants." First off, none of the "characteristics" of remnants were laws. A "law" in science is a generalized rule to explain a body of observations in the form of a verbal or mathematical statement. There was nothing mathematical about "Remants can't affect the world".

2) The explanation of where the remnants came from and their characteristics were delivered to us in an extremely heavy-handed form. From the beginning they explained exactly how the remnants came to be, as well as all of their characteristics. Normally in movies they leave a bit of mystery to things, which enriches the plot and piques your interest. They didn't really do that here.

3) In the beginning, the heroine's friend warns her of this guy who is supposedly "obsessed" with remnants. They never showed any weird behavior by him, except that he was watching them in a tunnel. I would think that every teenager would be pretty impressed and curious about remnants, so I didn't see why he was singled out for this.

4) Why is it that every remnant who appeared matched their physical surroundings perfectly? The dying girl climbing the ladder: Is it really plausible that in this apocalyptic dump, they would leave that ladder in the same exact position? Is it plausible that her father's chair was always positioned perfectly so he could sit in it? Normally we push in chairs or move them around a bit.

5) Why does the scientist at ground zero run from them and then pull a gun on them? And then suddenly is fine telling them the entire story? And why was he watching this remnant get strangled? And why did he choose to live at the dump? He said it felt like the best place for him. Sorry but it all just seemed weird.

6) The whole possession of people with the same birthday thing... Why would someone's birthday being the same allow a spirit to possess them? And why is this scientist so convinced people can be possessed in the first place? Even if I accept the premise of remnants, it felt childish.

7) There was one point where she asks him "Why do you have bolt cutters?" as if it were a strange thing. They had already planned to drive to an apocalyptic city with unknown environmental situations. Of COURSE he should bring tools to deal with unanticipated situations. A better question would be "Why didn't you bring a gun?"

8) It seems bizarre that the informant of the girl who died said to them "Do you want to see her die?" She can easily explain how she died. Why did they need to drive out there to see that? Even if it did make sense, it just was a weird way to phrase that about someone they cared about.

There are a lot of other little things like this which overall degraded the believable-ness of the film, and thus I had a hard time caring about the characters. Also - that scene where the guy forced her to kiss him... That felt creepy and wrong on his part. I definitely did not ship them at that point.

Overall though, it was mildly entertaining. And the premise of having ghosts that everyone could see felt like an original concept in a movie. Unfortunately they didn't do the best job with the plot.

I feel that teenagers could probably enjoy this movie more than most adults due to the high school situations.

Rather enjoyed this one
Verified purchase
It's sort of a mixture of a ghost story and sci-fi mixed. Nice telling of what could happen if a man made accident created a rift for those that lost their lives to it and the world we live in. I liked the characters and there is a little surprise here and there of who isn't who they seem to be. Interesting twists and turns. Pretty good special effects help to make the story a little more "believable" if that's the right word for this strange little journey. Enjoy. I did!

Entertainingly Bad
Verified purchase
This movie makes absolutely no sense nor does it really try to the entire time. The lead actress is never without heavy make-up, even in the shower. She rides a bike and wears barely anything in 0 degree weather. Never wears a bra and her style is goth clown goes to Coachella in Chicago in Feb because teens make dumb decisions? The "good guy bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks," drives a $60k classic modified RWD car that would barely function in that climate, but its never an issue. He's able to figure anything out even without any information. It's amazing! The teacher is creepy and inappropriate right from the beginning. This is high school? No teacher at any level has "home office hours," to be alone with students unless they're trying to get arrested. So so so so so many plot holes and unbelievable behavior! In the end, we watched the entire movie because it was so bad and yelling, "how?! What is happening?! How does this make sense?! That's not how that works!" was actually pretty fun. Looks like they left it open for a sequel which I would also likely watch when it gets added to prime. However, the in RL, in bad boy would still be facing serious charges at the end. In the movie, nah, we'll forget all about that and move on!
Fun fact: hugging someone who's been submerged in icy water for a significant amount of time while on thin ice in the middle of a winter storm = that person is dead, and probably the hugger too since the ice is broken! But who needs basic facts about human survival? And that's why it's fun! 😋

The Ghost Story You Never Saw Before
Verified purchase
I Still See You is a unique supernatural ghost story. A large number of people are instantly vaporized from a flawed company experiment. Ghostly images of the dead reappear without warning. The living learn to accept these remnants that appear without warning. The story centers around a troubled high school girl played by Bella Thorne. She is forewarned that she will die on her next birthday. In an attempt to prevent her death she visits the erie forbidden section of the city destroyed by the company disaster. This scary area is overrun with ghosts, but has the answers she is looking for. I Still See You is a different supernatural thriller with a good original story and surprises that are well worth the price of this DVD.

Interesting take on a ghost story

Love this movie. Saw a preview of it on another dvd and knew I had to have it. Interesting variation on a ghost story with some nice surprises. Bella Thorne gives a top notch performance.
