Dan Stevens plays the role of David; a mysterious soldier returning from war; introducing himself to the Peterson family; as a friend of their son who died in action by his side. David is charismatic, attentive, caring and ever-helpful. As such he becomes instantly popular with the family and even the town they reside in.
However the light that surrounds him blinds everyone from a dark shadow that he casts. Wrongful incriminations, missing people and mysterious deaths follow him where ever he goes.
No doubt the movie starts off slow; but once it picks up get ready to fasten your seat-belts because the story just goes full speed ahead.
I don't want to give away any major plot points, but all I can say is this - If you love a thrilling, mysterious and action packed movie then this is definitely up your alley.
A good use of humor and some witty dialogue well placed all throughout, adds more character to the movie. An awesome 80's/ Daft Punk inspired soundtrack just builds to the mood and depth of the scenes. Dan Stevens definitely has star potential. One cannot help but get mesmerized and captivated by his piercing blue eyes. I definitely hope to see more awesome movies from this rising actor.
Maika Monroe another rising actress, is the lead female Anna Peterson in the movie. She definitely catches the eye with the looks of the late and beautiful Brittany Murphy. She starts out as a typical naive teenager but when she realises there are possible skeletons in the mysterious David's closets and mysterious events surrounding him; she grows into this protective, smart and highly resourceful woman ready to take on the world. She has the looks, the brains and the talents - the perfect combination to the heroine of this and any movie. Definitely raised my eyebrow. RELEASING OCT 9TH - BOOK YOUR TICKETS ASAP!!!
