The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Young, hopeful couple Erika (Frida Farrell) and Steve (Tom Sandoval) embark on a weekend retreat to meet Steven's parents. Now, it's a fight for their lives against their mysterious abductor (Daniel Fanaberia) and the secrets he possesses. As he tortures and teases them, secrets from the past emerge and change everything. When Erika escapes, theings only get worse, and the twists and turns take the viewer into unchartered territory and unyielding mayhem.
There are some movies that need to be seen rather than told about and "Behind Your Eyes" is one of those films. The film is about Erika and Steve who are about to go on a road trip to meet Steve's parents. When they make a needed stop they are kidnapped by a stranger and taken to a empty cabin where they are beaten and tied up. This stranger seems to know things about them that no one could know, after he has his way and say with them he decides to let them go. Erika runs to the nearest cabin for help, there she meets an older couple who seem more than willing to help but they too are not who they seem to be.
"Behind Your Eyes" is a thriller that has enough twists and turns in it to fill up a half dozen Hollywood thrillers and that is what makes it so hard to talk about. The more I say here about the plot the greater the chances of me ruining the film for those wanting to see it and I certainly don't want to do that. I can tell you this is one of those rare films that has you clinging to the edge of your seat the entire time waiting and wondering what is going to happen next.
Director, Clint Lien and Writer, Daniel Fanaberia have combined to create one very impressive thriller that will you guessing all the way to the end. What's more impressive is this is a first for both men, each has worked before in movies but this is a first time for each as writer and director and I was very impressed to say the least. Not only is the story and direction flawless but the cast is just as amazing, the main two leads, Frida Farrell and Tom Sandoval are incredible and Writer, Daniel Fanaberia also gives a fantastic performance in the film as does the rest of the supporting cast.
I can talk about the plot more but this gem needs to be seen to be appreciated, I haven't been glued to the screen watching a movie like this in a long time. If you're a fan of thrillers then you owe it to yourself to pick this up. I expect this to do very well on DVD with strong word of mouth. "Behind Your Eyes" is an award winning film that takes the term, "edge of your seat" to another level. Independent cinema is where it's at right now thanks to films like this one. I look forward to seeng what everyone involved has coming out next but in the mean time be sure to check this out
