Static (2012)

Last night after finishing the review of Night of the Naked Dead and completing research for my Digital Citizenship project, I decided to kick back and watch something different. Of course, having some ficks from Family Video helps.My selection for the evening was Static from 2012. 

Plot/ A couple facing marital problems after losing their child finds their life together further complicated by a mysterious visitor.

This one definitely had an interesting premise, albeit an idea that is somewhat cliche, although a supernatural aspect was somewhat refreshing. There was a lot to like as the acting was solid, the storyline was layered, and there were some decent moments. Unfortunately, the characters felt flat, there were some strange pacing aspects, and an overall lack of tension that brought it down. In the end, there are a lot of other psychological thrillers out there to keep you interested, stand clear of this one.
