Sometimes things are not planned, and the nightmare from the dream life ends soon. Released as VOD/DVD through the Vision movie “Shadow Man” on February 28, 2017, directed/produced by David Wilson (Spirit Riders 2015, Dark Whispers 2007), and directed by Brian T. Jaynes (Dead 2014, Spirit Riders 2015) / Production, focusing on newlyweds who move to the countryside from their dream home. Interesting enough, this is not only a romantic novel, but also a story that focuses on the future.
One rainy night after the local carnival, Megan (Kat Steffens: Rehash 2015, Under Nitrous 2015) and Andrew (Bug Hall: Harley and Davidsons 2016) were about to head to their new house. Both parties are very happy to start a new life, this house has enough space to accommodate Megan’s paintings, writer Andrew’s office and nursery. The bad weather made the trip disturbing, and when they finally arrived safely, it was a great relief. Megan and Andrew soon settled down and set up their own offices.
Within a few days of entering the house, Megan experienced bizarre visions and terrible dreams. These intensities increase daily at home. Megan begins seeing creepy people in her home: an elderly man (Grant James: The Haunting in Connecticut 2 2013, Dumb and Dumber To 2014), an elderly woman (Juli Erickson: Bernie 2011, Upstream Color 2013), a Sheriff (Randy Lindsey: Ellie 2016, A Time to Stand 2017), EMT (Frederic Doss: Transformers 2007, G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra 2009), and Priest Kaine (C. Thomas Howell: E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial 1982, The Outsiders 1983). When Megan began to collapse, Andrew was able to calm Megan and maintain control. However, Andrew’s fanaticism and unnatural presence penetrated Andrew.
Meghan’s vision reached a certain level, and Andrew and Meghan were forced to take action. Andrew tried to remove Megan from their new but deadly home. The house refuses to let them go, it drives the supernatural power to show itself to Andrew and Megan. Andrew had no choice but to accept the facts. When the incident reached its climax, Andrew and Megan were unprepared for what happened next.
“Shadow Man” is the third movie. Thomas Howell collaborated with executive producers Nicole Walton Durban and Brian Janes. The house used for the set is locally known as the Haunted House in Winsboro, Texas. During the shooting, the crew experienced strange events, turning on and off the lights, shadowing people, etc. In addition, the film photography of Michael John Marcinik (Hostages, 2013, Reasons for Age, 2014) is seamless, as is the performance of Hall and Steffens They are also excellent, especially considering that they account for most of the film. The surprising ending tied everything together, but neat and deep.
The overall plot of “Shadow Man” explores different aspects and ideals of life after death, making the audience question their beliefs. This is why it is necessary to pay attention, and Howell, Durban and Janes are definitely a team to watch. For these reasons, CrypticRock rated “Shadow Man” with 5 stars (the highest 5 stars).
