We are certainly not strangers to Supernatural Horror but most today lack any real story and focus more on the scare factor which can be effective the first few times but quickly becomes boring after awhile. Now there is Imprint, a Native American ghost story that turns the genre on its head by not relying on fancy effects or jump tactics but instead it tells a story that is both smart and clever. This is a low-budget Independent film so the effects used are along that line but they are used in all the right ways, to help enhance the story and not be it. The production is fantastic, the landscapes are breath-taking the the score really helps set the mood. The cast was wonderful, each actor made their characters believable but in the end it is the story that makes this film a special one. If you enjoy the genre I recommend treating yourself to a film that delivers on all fronts without having to rely on gore, Imprint is an intelligent thriller that will please all fans of the genre.
