Movie Info

After a well-adjusted husband and father experiences the most devastating crisis of his life, events take a most unexpected and incredible turn in Suspension, Ethan Shaftel and Alec Joler's offbeat science fiction fantasy. Scott Cordes stars as Daniel, a family man whose life is seemingly destroyed when his wife and son are killed in an automobile accident, leaving him completely alone. During his intense period of physical and emotional recovery, Daniel uses down time to repair his son's video camera, which was damaged in the crash and somehow "absorbed" the otherworldly power to stop time in its tracks. This amazing discovery re-instills a sense of self-importance and meaning in Daniel, and he quickly turns to another surviving victim of the same tragedy: Sarah, the widowed wife of the other driver from the same accident. Daniel wants nothing more than to help her and begins taking a series of steps in this direction. Unfortunately, Daniel's innate altruism soon outstrips his control and grows decidedly impure, as his magnanimity turns into a compulsion.

Heartbreaking, terrifying, and utterly mesmerizing, Suspension is independent filmmaking at its jaw-dropping finest.

I relate to this Movie now more than I did when I saw it, since losing my Husband Tragically in a Motorcycle Accident, now that to Date I have lost Seven key players in my life to Death, I'd like to see this again & maybe my rating will change

Sometimes less is more - the special effects in this movie are simply amazing, given that it was made on a shoe-string budget. Unfortunately the movie suffers from the B-level cast (the supporting cast is especially bad), and the story could use a bit more depth.

Very interesting and unusual little film. Something about it didn't quite sit right, but on the whole I thought it was a good effort and I do intend to sit and watch it again sometime and see if I can follow it a little better. The acting was very good too from a no name cast (well, no one I had ever heard of, anyhow). If you like unusual, you may want to check it out.
