Movie Info

SHADOW tells the strangely ethereal story of David (Jake Muxworthy), a young soldier returning from a tour of duty in Iraq, who decides to go on a mountain biking adventure in Europe to forget his battle-weary past. In the woods, he meets pretty young stranger Angeline (Karina Testa) and they team up to explore the picturesque surrounding area. Soon they learn of a mystifying local myth... a legend that will force David to face more shattering fears than he did during wartime. To meet the bloodthirsty butcher Mortis (Nuot Arquint) and to discover that reality is sicker than any nightmare. -- (C) IFC Film

  • Just when you're settled into thinking you're watching another survival horror, there's a massive and quite bold change in direction and all bets are off.

  • It is short, sharp and competently made but only narrowly avoids falling into the torture porn genre.

    Apr 28, 2011 | Rating: 2/5
  • presents one of the creepiest, most grotesque-looking antagonists seen since Max Schreck embodied Count Orlock in Nosferatu (1922). And if that does not whet the appetite, there is a scene of gratuitous toad-licking too...

  • A PTSD allegory concerned with exactly how torturous war becomes emotionally on those affected by it, as well as those who've participated in it.

  • Zampaglione admirably maintains the mood of menace and makes his point about humanity's potential for evil without undue preachiness.

    Apr 28, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It cleverly weaves together nasty nightmares from both the Iraq occupation and World War II while constantly grossing us out. Although we never get very deeply involved.

    Downright nightmare inducing. This movie started out rather benign, but after a half hour or so it makes a serious left turn. The character played by Nuot Arquint is...well...hideously awesome. I have no idea what part of hell he came from, but, I hope he crawled right back after making this movie. The ending was very Jacob's Ladder, but still a very interesting one all the same.
