Shadow People (2013)

Written and Directed by Matthew Arnold and Starring Dallas Roberts (you remember him from the Walking Dead?) and Alison Eastwood

Plot: A radio talk show host becomes embroiled in some strange deaths involving “shadow people”

Shadow_People_DVD_posterOriginally called The Door, Shadow people  is one of those “based on true events” movies but we assume that is bs. If you don’t like true events movies don’t let that detract from this movie. The “myth” of shadow people is very real. Take a trip on google and research all the craziness, it’s really interesting.

Dallas Roberts gives a great performance as a chain smoking talk radio host who isn’t exactly a teddy bear but throughout the movie you root for him. I love the scenes that are just him,a cigarette ,and his mic. Smoke slowly stripping away the paper on the cigarette as he does his best late night talk voice (which is very good). There are genuine scares throughout and i dug the ending. The movie is really original and has a great cast who flesh out realistic characters. It has a well written script and nice effects.

Overall very entertaining and more than worth a watch. Tara gave it a 62/100 and i love it with a score of 87/100.

1. If I could manage it, I'd love to learn a new language. 2. My favorite piece of clothing is my Philadelphia Eagles tee shirt. 3. The fictional place I'd most like to go to is the Starship Voyager so I could explore space. 4. I once spent exactly 6 hours (no more, no less) working at a Burger King. 5. If making people laugh were a sport, I'd win the gold every time. 6. My favorite drink is Yoo-Hoo. 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is Wonder. I loved the book, too. 8. My favorite bands are the Beach Boys and The Monkees. I've even seen The Monkees in concert. 9. Danny Trejo is my idol. He's overcome so much and he's super nice in person. 10. The most heartwarming thing I've ever seen is this old couple in the doctor's office. They were poking each other playfully and their love just filled the room.
