DATELINE: Instant Classic!
Klattenhoff acts puzzled!
An independent film made in Manitoba has the distinction of being a fascinating fantasy-sci fi-thriller of most unusual quality.
Radiustakes its simple plot and never exceeds its tight grasp on the situation.
Supernatural? Science fiction? Fantasy? This film defies categories and transcends all of them.
Radiusmanages to hold our curiosity and shock us with a lack of monsters, UFOs, or other junk you’d expect. Special effects are minimal, but have a fascinating power that reminded us of those 1950s sci-fi thrillers.
Two people with amnesia are hopelessly tied to each other. If they go outside of a parameter of fifty feet, one emits a deathly energy that kills any living creature.
Diego Klattenhoff and Charlotte Sullivan are the essential two-actor cast. All others are doomed to some mysterious death ray almost immediately. Klattenhoff also served as producer on the picture.
Trying to figure out what’s going on never violates your intelligence quotient. It grows steadily—and the revelations are more and more disturbing. If there is a paranormal, inter-dimensional connection, it has provided justice and redemption for the main character. It is morality coming from some esoteric alien force.
We cannot stress enough how surprised we were at the high-quality production, direction, acting. Some viewers were apparently bothered that the film did not devolve into the usual clichés.
We enjoy such discoveries and love to share them. Take in this film.
