(PG-13 for brief sex, violent & disturbing images, unorthodox thematic material): It's a mess.
Apparently hoping to ride in on the success of virtual reality-type of formats ("Paranormal Activity" the most recent), writer/director Olatunde Osunsanmi opts for a mix of recreated scenes from what actually happened in Nome, Alaska, where people were mysteriously disappearing or horribly murdered with dramatized versions of same. Shaky camera, TV-like unclear images, blurs, mostly narratives from involved characters given in bland, toneless, sometimes unintelligible whispers comprise the bulk of the film - aided by split screen shots of the "real" and "dramatic" persons.
It's presented mostly through a psychiatrist interviewing people experiencing similar strange horrors, then through another psychiatrist interviewing the first one, who seems to have become too involved with her patients & the unseen force (which later claims to be God) and is falling apart herself. To complicate the ridiculous narrative is the fact that the local constable considers the first psychiatrist to be alone guilty for the city's vanished and/or dead and hounds her relentlessly.
As with films of this sort, it ends up in the air. With its mix of "actual" scenes & the made-up scenes, punctuated by Atli Orvarsson's slam-bam, shock-stabbing musical score, this nearly 100-minute confusion most closely resembles the hyped-up reality shows on TV - aggravating and unsatisfying even at only half an hour. The references back to Sumarians in 4000 BC, religious suggestions and more - supposedly to give credibility to the clumsy editing & terrible camera work - just don't succeed to be either reality or dramatic entertainment. A mess. (Grade: F)
