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.

About DJVoorhees13

I don't believe in long winded reviews. I love Jason Voorhees. My favorite Friday is Friday 4: The Final Chapter (even though it isn’t), but I even like Friday 5: A New Beginning. I know the killer is not technically Jason, but you gotta love little Reckless and the blonde woman who keeps throwing him around. My guilty pleasures are Return of the Living Dead Parts 1 – 3. I know they’re not everyone’s favorites, but I can watch them over and over again with no reprieve. I also happen to think that Return of the Living Dead 3 characters Julie and Curt have one of the greatest love story ever told. When I’m not watching horror movies, I’m usually watching old TV shows or reading books/comics. Currently watching Star Trek: Voyager and reading anything by Dante Alighieri.
