With Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson this movie had some great actors obliged for an interesting story: there are people who can leave their bodies when dreaming… but don’t go too far! While watching, it reminded me a bit on Stephen King’s Novel LOVE where the protagonist could “drop” into another world and was lost when staying too long, when it’s getting dark on the other side, so this was a special ability with troubles attached.

Weak is how the movie Incidious shows this out-of–body experience (OBE or OOBE called) and the evocation to get the kid back. Nowadays with FX possibilities, I do expect more from a movie that is well funded. Paranormal Activity (from the same makers) also worked with the Poltergeist aspect of not having special effects too, which I think is ok for an independent movie, if you don’t have the connections, nor the time, nor the money, but not for a movie with those advantages.
But all in all, it was a great frightening movie and I would definitely watch it again on DVD.
The following link brings you to an IMDB.com movie list of the best suspenceful and funny movies so far, in my opinion (covers genres Thriller/Drama/Horror/Crime/Science Fiction/Action/Comedy) – random order, not sorted. These are all my favorite movies, most of them I saw in my childhood (I’m 1979) and again with adult eyes, which makes often a difference, but still, they are unbeatable.
I’m impressed by and appreciate movies who work without much bing bang boom and tricks (although I love visual effects), who have a believable story, who suck you into the story, that you completely forget where you sit and what you hold in your hands. And I have to say, I’m not a big comedy fan, if the film exaggerates too much, I likely don’t like it but if it’s situational comedy, I adore it. And well, romantic movies, I don’t know one I like. Maybe there are some, but then they are mixed up with another genre and it tends to be drama or comedy. So let me know if you know a romantic/love story movie where I might not fall asleep :).
What are your favorite movies? Any recommendation welcome!
