Strange to know that this film is so difficult and long way to its audience. Sometimes it happens that a passable Thriller that you can watch in the video, all packs are in a wide range of promotion they rolled on the big screen, talk about them and write a lot. However, generally speak and write negatively, but this is minor matters. About the challenges and important projects, sometimes the audience don’t even know! Say that who had produced a painting Studio went bankrupt, which led to the fact that the film was on a few years in limbo and then fell into the hands of other distributors, something which was potatoman and finally was released. But cursed it and, in my opinion is not entirely deserved, for he is in better times a walk-through under the horror that beset in recent years the cinema screens. And of course, not being a pure genre product, it combines drama, mystery Thriller and family history. The plot revolves around the fate of the husband and wife who lost the baby during an accident, know that no longer will be able to have children. They decide to adopt a boy who, as it turns out in the future, have super powers. Which can rather be perceived as a curse than a gift, because little Cody can revive my dreams. Given the fact that it is not always child dreams of fluttering around the butterfly house, this intractable logical explanation of the phenomenon gives his foster parents a lot of trouble. An understatement, because some of them refused it, while others completely disappeared without a trace. But Jesse and mark are not going to give up, especially since in dreams Cody can return them their lost son Sean.
It is necessary to say that family drama in the story at times more than mystery and especially horror. All related episodes could be seen in the promotional video: scary skinny looking monster (reminiscent of one of the creatures of “pan’s Labyrinth”), creepy boy with empty eyes and a sinister whisper: “I’ll always be with you.” Exactly as a beautiful, flying around the house with exotic butterflies. Other times, the characters lead difficult conversations in which trying to relieve emotional pain and find happiness again. Besides, mother still attends group sessions with a psychologist, who recognized the strangeness of his adopted son… to Look at the picture interesting, the plot and the problem of family relations delays, and the very rare “bad” episodes produce a positive impression, as expertly introduced in a story about the difficulties of adapting to a new family of “difficult” boys. From a small number of actors play the story, liked the main performers of the young couple the beautiful Kate Bosworth and charismatic Thomas Jane, who very seldom have a chance to get into good projects. But most of all, of course impressed with the little artist Jacob Tremble, marked by the Oscar-winning movie “the Room” I think in the near future to see. In General, we have a good picture that plays by the rules of the horror genre, but rises above it, and thanks to our talented Director Mike Flanagan, as well as clever and exciting screenplay Jeff Howard, become a noticeable phenomenon among the stream of monotonous action-Packed tape of the present day. Perhaps “Somnia” (a variant of the title picture got in our rental) not the worst Thriller this year, but the most intelligent and sincere exactly. Therefore, I personally recommend the picture for viewing. I hope the time spent on it you will not regret it. I’m looking forward to the next work of this Director, and I wish that she was in the horror genre.
