Frequently Bought Together
In this darkly romantic ghost story, a woman (Academy Award Winner Mira Sorvino) travels to an isolated cabin where she finds herself stalked by an apparition (Shane West, "A Walk To Remember") who has come to inhabit her space as his own. With the unexpected arrival of the woman's boyfriend (Golden Globe nominee Justin Kirk, "Weeds"), the dark spirit's haunting grows more obsessive. Soon the woman begins to exhibit weirdly irrational behavior as the thin line between sanity and possession begins to unravel. The Presence is grounded in terrific performances, beautiful cinematography, a lush musical score, and a Hitchcockian style that explores the idea of pure cinematic storytelling.

For instance, the camera rarely comes off the tripod, rather than shake like crazy, which has become so boring. And rather than a bunch of unknown 20 year-olds stuck in a cabin, this film boasts top-notch performances from top talent in their 30s! You want blood? This film isn't for you. It tastefully and respectfully scares you without gore. And, believe it or not, there is a really good, solid love story amidst the fright!
Do you want to see something different, without stupid antics and cheap tricks? Watch THE PRESENCE...
It is a pleasure to discover a film as sophisticated, thought-provoking and thoroughly well-crafted as this, even from independent film makers; this has been made by people who know the value of a lingering camera shot, effective use of sound, the integration of music and the merit of an evocative setting. Writer/director Tom Provost has delivered an unusual, subtly gripping, genre-twisting story that introduces the viewer into the secret from the outset, then creates tension and unease as the plot unfolds around the central characters, an unnamed woman and her boyfriend.
With the vast, empty Oregon landscape as a background and the remote, unsettling location of a cabin apparently only accessible by water, Mia Sorvino and the rest of the cast put in wonderfully measured performances; Tony Curran, especially, makes Mephistopheles look like a reasonable bloke.
I have no wish to give any of the story away - you'll have to watch this film and discover its meanings and depths for yourself.
"The Presence" deserves to be bracketed with classics like "The Haunting", "The Others" or "The Sixth Sense" - even realised on a very small budget, it is still a beautiful, polished piece of cinema.
The film is presented in a widescreen (2.35:1) format; there are no subtitles.Read more ›
Anyway, her slightly jerky boyfriend (Justin Kirk) shows up and wouldn't you know it, the male ghost has testosterone issues or so it seems. Creepy huh. Things start to happen to him. The film moves slow and just about when you think nothing will happen, Bam! it does. First slowly, then more dramatic things happen as the film progresses. The boyfriend turns out to be less jerky than he was at first and is the picture of understanding while the serene Mira is somewhat psychotic...or is it the ghost? or a demon from her past?
We soon discover this is more than a simple ghost haunting...
The film is done in a way you can feel the tension between the characters, the influence of the ghost, and the frustration of the boyfriend. The movie has an existential Christian theme to it, but shies away from stating any specific names that pin it to Christianity.
No sex or nudity.

Haunting and rather strange but beautifully filmed scenery and nice performance from Mira.Published 2 months ago by Mrs. D Hammond
This is a bit of slow burner, and really isn't as good as you would hope. And is not scary in the least. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Paul Tapper
