Offbeat, dark and quirky, with plenty of atmosphere. But the film strays into dull territory all too often.
Every once in a while, After Dark Films delivers something solid. Like this one.
Director Antonio Negret's evil-twins film would have made a nice, taut Twilight Zone episode. One of the half-hour ones.
After Dark Originals are known for being extreme horror films for the true horror aficionado. Most of these films have been as advertised, but no one has a hundred percent success rate. Seconds Apart follows Seth and Jonah, two nerdy twins, with extreme twin powers, mainly telepathy. They have fun pulling pranks and using it against the people they perceive to have wronged them, leaving them in a world all their own, but that all changes when a girl gets in the middle of things. The inherit problem with this film, is that these twins aren't creepy at all. Casting decided to go with looks over horror and these two look like they should be on magazines, like they would never have problems with bullies or girls, and as for psychotic killers with superpowers go, these two are so mild-mannered, that it made the story completely unbelievable. When you add to that the fact that Orlando Jones is the investigating detective at this upscale religious school, cracking jokes that no one gets, the film itself becomes the horror show. The story itself wasn't terrible, but the problem here is one we see all too often, the casting. These twins may be good for the Disney channel, but they aren't cut out to be psychopaths. I just found the whole film to be full of cliche's and very poorly done.
Solid psychological horror that doesn't quite make the most of its plot. The two emotionless twins make for a creepy duo as they set themselves a project to try and create scenario's using their mind controlling powers that will inflict fear into them, even if it means committing murder. A good enjoyable film overall with a nice twist towards the end too. Not a gory or particularly violent film, but it's well acted and the story is decent enough to keep you interested till the end.
A really good and seemingly (relative) original idea, this film could have been so much better.I feel like they had this brilliant idea and just wanted to move fast with getting it made. Maybe it was budget constraints, maybe it was they just couldn't be bothered but it has so much potential. There was too many unexplained points. I found myself not quite sure what exactly their 'talent' was and especially WHY they had the talent. Also I found it so difficult to tell them apart that it made the story much more confusing, especially towards the end. Really good performances from the twins and Jones but I feel a bit let down by this. Could have been fantastic.
This started out very interesting, and quirky. By the end, however, I was completely confused at what it all meant.
