“If ghosts can think and remember who they are, then the physical brain is not the only place where we store our inner selves.”
That’s the first thing this movie wants you to know about it. If you like Insidious and The Conjuring sort of movies, good news. Here’s one with evil 3D printers and people training one another to be mediums.
This is the first full-length film from Portuguese writer/director Paulo Leite. It’s pretty well done and has an intriguing premise, as Helen was once a medium but gave that up when her daughter killed herself. Today, she’s dedicated to brain research. However, she also needs ghosts to do her research, as she’s investigating the fields that the soul leaves behind.
Star Celia Williams, who plays Helen, and Elizabeth Bochmann, who plays the artistic Elsa, are real-life mother and daughter. She comes to be trained along with Helen’s best friend’s daughter Moira, but when science and the paranormal collide, no one’s lives will be unchanged.
If you’re sensitive to strobe lights, however, you may want to skip this one.
Inner Ghosts is available on demand and on DVD from Uncork’d Entertainment.
