This sci-fi flick hits all the right notes for fans who crave a little paranormal in their thrillers. The story is unique and well-paced and Anthony Mackie does an exceptional job bringing party-boy Steve to life with depth and interest. Jamie Dornan does well as his partner, Dennis, though Mackie does outshine him in every scene.
