Okay, I’m impressed. I see a whole lot of really low-budget films and some of them I dig and some of them… well, I don’t. So when I popped in this cross-breed of The Ghost Whisperer meets Boyz n the Hood I was simply amazed. Director Brian Maris shoots his characters and the world they live in using all sorts of tricks with the camera and editing, whether it be sped up film, blurry shots, close-ups on a door when tons of violence is heard all around and the thing it, it works. He knows his budget and he used it to his advantage by keeping what could have been cheesy B-movie action shots off-screen and focusing on character and a few carefully chosen, brutal moments. He also crosses genres very well, whether you call it urban drama, supernatural thriller or whatever label you want to smack on it, it works and uses the stereotypes to create some charismatic characters. This is a well directed and well written take on each genre which is not always perfect, but it is one of the best examples of how to make a genre movie with a low budget. It’s creative, sometimes touching and sometimes a little brutal.
