A surprisingly well made entry in this year's 'After Dark' horror series!
'SECONDS APART': Three Stars (Out of Five)
This entry in this year's (2011) 'After Dark Originals' is about mysterious twins with deadly telepathic and telekinetic abilities. It was directed by Antonio Negret and written by George Richards and it stars Orlando Jones (in a surprisingly serious role). It also stars Gary and Edmund Entin as the twins and Samantha Droke as one twin's hot love interest. The acting is all decent and so are the overall production values. This horror film is also surprisingly unique and somewhat unpredictable. It's a surprisingly well made entry in this year's 'After Dark' horror series!
It tells the story of Seth and Jonah (the Entin brothers), two dark and creepy twin brothers attending a Catholic high school. When their classmates begin dying mysterious deaths, that appear to be suicide, the lead detective investigating the case, Detective Lampkin (Jones), begins to suspect the twins are somehow involved. The twins have a special bond, that only they know is the power of telepathy, and are doing a project that involves making a movie. Lampkin knows that there's something off about them and he knows they were close to a number of the victims before they died, sometimes with a camera (although a recording can't be found). As he questions them things become tense and Lampkin is also haunted by memories of the death of his wife in a tragic fire. Things also become emotional for the twins when jealousy begins to tear them apart as a lovely young lady (Droke) enters one of their lives.
The film is very dark and twisted and has just the right amount of gore and thrills to please most horror fans. The Entin brothers are great in the leads as the twins and make a very frightening duo. Droke is great eye candy and Jones is interesting as the movie's protagonist. I never really knew where the movie was going and found it pretty engaging right up to the end. The lead characters are the twins though and they're a little too dark and sinister to really care about them, so the movie lacks any true sympathy or heart. It's a great dark horror film though that's plenty disturbing and manages to offer a somewhat different story than the usual. It's definitely one of the better 'After Dark Originals'.
