This is a fairly low budget but very well executed ghost story. Ted Levine (a first rate actor, probably best known as Buffalo Bill in The Silence of The Lambs), plays a dipsomaniac writer who has been involved in experimental governmental research into mind-altering drugs. The effect of the drugs is to give people psychic powers so that, like mediums, they can be in touch with the spirit world. Predictably enough, when this happens it opens the door to a particularly malevolent spirit wreaking havoc with test patients. The film is slightly slow paced, but this doesn't hurt its effectiveness, it is genuinely scarey with several moments which will have you jumping out of your skin. The scenes of patients being strapped down on a chair and suffering the aftermath of the drugs, are far from gorey, but quite disturbing. The lead actress, who I've never seen before, is a thinking man's eye candy, and plays a journalist for an internet newspaper, whose closest male friend goes missing. She starts to investigate the disappearance of her friend, which leads her to Ted Levine's character, and the two of them then go off on a quest to solve the mystery. There is a twist in the tale right at the end, which you may or may not be able to predict. If you like the Rec movie - the Spanish version of the first one - this is in a similar style but with a lot less blood and guts. Well worth viewing.
