Quick synopsis as follows, the shadow people are allegedly responsible for a spate of sudden unexplained deaths (SUNDS), which can be traced back to South East Asia in the 70s. A professor in the US undertook a research experiment where all the participants died inexplicably, the footage was never found. Back to present day late-nite radio talkshow host (played excellently by Dallas Roberts) receives a distressed caller who claims to be seeing the shadow people.
After seeing the trailer and reading the synopsis I thought this was going to be an excellent film; which is to some extent. It's apparent the director has gone to great pains to make Shadow People an immersive story; the acting is all excellent throughout (the character dynamics are done really well, not least the DJ's son and estranged wife); also clear is the level of research and thought that has gone into it - the government health agent, for instance.Read more ›
The film incorporates "actual footage" of the real host "Charlie Camfield" and various news feeds. The people in these "actual films" are different than the actors portraying them in order to give the film a sense of realism. I believe they are uncredited actors as the film also includes police interrogation films as well as people/news casters who do not exist in the world of Google.
Dallas Roberts did a good job, but the script was bland. Your villain is "shadow people" who only come if you imagine them. This is not a documentary about the syndrome. The scare factor doesn't exist... until you go to sleep. A well done interesting film that goes nowhere.
Actual studies are interesting as it appears people suffer heart fibrillation while sleeping. Younger males are most susceptible with epilepsy, stress (from relocation) and perhaps diet prior to bedtime (carbs) being linked as contributing factors.
Parental Guide: 1 f-bomb, brief rear nudity
The main character charlie a late night chat show host becomes embroiled in a conspiracy involving these strange entities. Both entertaining and creepy. Just don't think about the shadow people and you'll be fine.
