A troubled journalist seeks to redeem himself in the woods and finds his work has dangerous "power"
Verified purchase
Actor Richard Harmon (who starred in "Judas Kiss" in 2011 and in "The 100") is an executive producer of Jon Silverberg's road-trip horror-adventure. Harmon plays Jake, a troubled photojournalist with some questionable behavior in his own past. He seems "meaning" in documenting the history of a remote island off the British Columbia coast, and takes a job (having brought all he owns with him) as caretaker of an old property. His boss Sparky (Philip Granger) becomes intrusive and has his own somewhat similar past demons himself. (They involved women.) Jake starts to see supernatural premonitions of a catastrophic future as he develops his photos in a darkroom he sets up in an old shed. A Pacific hurricane approaches. It is significant that the film takes place in 1989, when conventional photography was developed this way and before digital photography was common.

Creepy but Interesting.

This movie gave me the heebie-jeebies, though it was interesting to watch to the end. However, I wish Jake would've kept the pictures to himself in the end. The very last photograph shown threw me off and made me think twice about the character Jake. I won't spoil this, though. Anyone reading my review that hasn't seen this movie, pay attention to the photographs in the movie and be sure you see the last one before the credits roll. You'll know it when you see it.

Very slow burn with inaccurate synopsis
Verified purchase
Slow, slow burn of a movie. The synopsis does not really match the movie content.

Terrible movie
Verified purchase
This was a slow moving, weird movie that just dragged on. I only finished it because I'm a fan of "the 100", and Amanda Tapping. Btw, she is only used for a couple of lines over a radio. She does not even appear.

Couldn't finish

Besides being very slow and dull the main character is also very hard to like contributing to the flatness of this film. Wouldn't recommend

Slow Burn
Verified purchase
What begins as an ordinary story of a broken-hearted photojournalist who can't escape his troubled past soon turns extraordinary. The film takes place on Haida Gwaii, an archipelago off Canada's west coast. Beware the twists and turns along the way!
