The Deaths of Ian Stone Reviews
2.5 stars because it was a good idea, and the Harvesters looked pretty decent.
Include The Deaths of Ian Stone among the latter.
The story of an all-American guy, played by Mike Vogel, starts off fabulously. In a kind of twisted Groundhog Day, Ian Stone is killed everyday. Only to wake up in a completely different life... but with the same people.
We soon learn the thing(s) killing Ian, are a Harry Potter Dementor-inspired group called Harvesters. Well, it's about right here that the film goes downhill. Everything becomes predictable and quite frankly, boring. All coming to an ending which mixes Matrix-type wear into the fray.
Mike Vogel does bring a certain amount of sympathy to the role of Ian Stone. And Dexter's Jaime Murray is kind of a campier version of her role on the serial killer hit.
I won't let this deter me from watching other AfterDark films, but I really hope they get back to the original premise -- that these films are too gruesome to be screened anywhere else.
2.5 Ball Point Pens.
