Scott Speedman and Julia Stiles star in this engaging horror about a couple, Sarah (Stiles) and Paul (Speedman) that move to Columbia with their young daughter for Sarah’s new job with her father’s company.

When the couple arrive in their new abode, they begin to notice a strange presence,  many actually… that seem to be surrounding their house.

After their daughter Hannah falls sick, the couple start to investigate the local history of the town and discover the disturbing truth behind the deaths of many young children 20 years ago.

The couple soon figure out that the deaths of the children may be linked to Sarah’s workplace.  Sarah confronts her father for the truth and he leads her to the grim grave site of the bodies, where his own personal sacrifice to save his granddaughter may also be his salvation.

Impressive cinematography filled with long, one shot pans that really intensify the suspense and horror of the film.

Great naturalistic performances from both Scott Speedman and Julia Stiles, both of who performed with the perfect sole motivation of their characters – the wellbeing of their daughter and their love for one another.  They were a joy to watch and certainly outshone all other performances in the film, without overpowering the story. – The perfect balance.

8.75/10

Writer, director and actor Shawn Christensen plays Richie, a disillusioned young man on the verge of suicide.

However, on the night of his planned demise, he receives a phone call from his estranged sister Maggie (played by Emmy Rossum) with a favor… to look after her young daughter, his precocious niece, Sophia (played by Fatima Ptacek).

During their night together,  both Richie and Sophia learn a lot from each other whilst developing an unlikely bond.

‘Before I Disappear’ is based on Christensen’s Oscar winning short film ‘Curfew’, also starring himself a well as as Ptacek in the same roles.

Zoe (Sharon Hinnendael) and Mal (Jill Evyn) are two actresses on set, preparing to film a love scene.  But, the tension between them soon shows and we discover there is more to their relationship, than just a working one.

Drama between the girls begins to unfold and members of the crew (particularly the producer and her assistant) are left trying keep the production from falling apart.

While I enjoyed the realistic “behind-the-scenes” type perspective (the crew played themselves in the movie), the drawn out disputes between Zoe and Mal quickly became tiresome.  Their reactions and justifications just felt childish and not to mention entirely unprofessional, it felt like the other characters of the production crew were babysitting and placating a couple of pre-teen girls during a slumber party fall out.
