In an attempt to prove there is life after death a group of scientists perform an experiment in which they euthanize a group of terminally ill subjects. In the process of the experiment they capture a psychopomp - a guide of souls. Psychopomps are believed to have been guiding souls from one plane to the next since the beginning of time and appear in Greek, Egyptian and Hindu mythology. But by capturing one of these psychopomps this group of scientists may have inadvertently changed everything we know about time and space as well as life and death, forever.
Novice filmmaker Jim Agnew makes his directorial debut in a film he also wrote, and clearly made on a shoestring budget - and succeeded.
His directing was actually quite good, and although the writing had some plot issues, it was still creative and interesting.
The acting was spot on by all cast, and the cinematography was on point. I felt the pace was a little slow, even for the short 78 min length, and that perhaps this should have been edited down with a faster pace to a short film of about 40 mins.
The score was also fairly decent and apropriate but felt out of place in a few scenes. My main issue was the sets... clearly not much of the budget went into them, as a few desks and fluorescent bulbs with outdated equipment and miles of thin phone lines don't make for a convincing set that apparently needed to draw power from many major cities in many states.
Nevertheless, for a very low budget C-grade film with B-list actors, this was a fun little sci-fi. A well deserved 8/10 from me.
