A father and daughter are drawn into a surreal dream world where the forces of light and darkness wage a constant battle for the minds of mankind. When darkness falls and we close our eyes, benevolent forces seek to instill us with courage and strength through sweet dreams. Meanwhile, other, more malevolent beings curse us with nightmares that fill our minds with desperation and despair. When an innocent little girl is spirited away to a phantasmagorical world of dreams by mysterious creatures known as Ink, her father must find a means of rescuing her and preventing the metaphysical war between these two powerful forces from bleeding into our reality.

    Initially strange and confusibg this indie movie really excels in the last third. An interesting story, visually original characters and great music make up for the often cheesy effects or bad dialogue.

    Ink is a spectacular little low-budget film. At night, as we sleep, two groups of different warriors battle over our souls. There are the Storytellers that give us dreams, and the Incubi that give us nightmares. There are also drifters, that are kind of trapped between worlds. One of these drifters, Ink, kidnaps a young girl and it is up to the storytellers to rescue her. WHat I loved about this film is that you can see the passion and hardwork that has gone into it. It doesn't allow for its budget to become a limitation. The film also uses simple but very effective effects. There is a fight scene early on where things get smashed up but then magically put themselves back together again. It is probably just footage in reverse, but it works a charm. The designs of the characters are also very original, at least for this kind of story. The film is one you have to stick with, as it reveals its intentions and story over time. Some scenes seem completely unrelated which can cause the film to drag in the middle, but stick with it because the emotional ending is very powerful. Lower your expectations in terms of lighting, acting, and fight choreography, and you should find a lot to love in this little film that refuses to be held back.

    A dark and obscure Gilliam-esque fable about a mysterious creature, know as Ink, steals a child's soul in hopes of using it as a bargaining chip to join the Incubi - the group of supernatural beings responsible for creating nightmares. It might feel hard to follow at first, but this low budget gem, can easily create a cult following for those fortunate enough to come across it.

    An interesting grown up fairytale about a young girl who needs to be loved by her work obseesed dad. When we go to sleep at night we get visited by a force of people that give us good dreams and an opposing force that give us nightmares. When a young girl is seperated from her dad because of his obseession with works leads him to drugs and drink, the bad guys see an opportunity to take the little girl out of this world. This happens when a seemingly lonely wanderer called Ink takes her soul when shes asleep, putting her real self into some type of coma and the only way she can get out of this is if her dad comes for her and shows some love and remorse for his previous actions. Along with the good dream forces, a struggle ensues to help get the girl back from where she could be lost forever. Although not for everyone, Ink has a decent, simple message at its heart as well as some cool special affects and fight scenes and is worth a look.
