Sometimes when I have to work late at the institute, I lose interest in finding something to watch. That was not the case tonight, as I decided to check out something different after an episode of Charmed. In the end, I settled on the 2014 supernatural entry Necrophobia (AKA Necrophobia 3D).
Plot/ Dante is a tailor who after losing his twin brother to death became phobic which prevents him from being in contact with death. Whenever he is in front of a dead body, he experiences a creepy feeling that makes him lose his mind.
Having twins, it is always fun to find creepy movies about or involving twins. While this movie may not be super creepy, it is definitely strange and has a weird disjointed feel to it. There were some solid parts to the movie (even if it lacked subtitles) including some decent performances, an odd premise, and some dark atmospheric moments early on. Unfortunately, the weirdness and tension that drew me in early on gave way to a tremendous amount of confusion the longer the movie progressed. It seemed like the entire movie was stuck in a strange loop. In the end, I did like some of the strange happenings, but felt disconnected by the repeating storyline. The movie is an interesting experiment, but it felt like the filmmakers were trying too hard to create something strange and surreal. It is great for a background while writing, but other than that it offers very little in entertainment value.
