Storyline

It's been two years since Dylan McNalt killed himself. Therapist Victoria Wrightmar has been struggling to forgive herself ever since. After all, Dylan was her patient... and she allowed him to get too close. Victoria has managed to start a new practice specializing in dreams and hypnotherapy, and with the success of her newest book and the support of her boyfriend Jason, it seems like things are finally looking up. Until Blaire Bennett walks into Victoria's office. Blaire has been suffering from disturbing dreams, and a peculiar hypnosis session reveals that her case is startlingly similar to Dylan's. Is history repeating itself? Victoria's life begins to spiral out of control as other patients begin relapsing in their progress and Victoria's loved ones find themselves in harm's way. But is there somebody pulling the strings from the shadows, or is Victoria-the only thing linking it all together-somehow responsible? Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Female in jeopardy: With about 39 minutes remaining, Victoria is threatened by Derek, who has broken into her home armed with a gun. He grabs her and throws her on the bed then against a wall. He wounds himself in a suicide attempt. With about 26 minutes remaining, Victoria is tasered by Nancy, who thought Victoria was a burglar. Nancy does not press charges. With about 8 minutes remaining, Victoria is threatened by Blaire at gunpoint. Victoria closes a wooden door between them and Blaire fires through it, and then pushes into the room. A brief but epic chick fight takes place and Blaire ends up with the gun. Instead of shooting Victoria, she begins to talk. Victoria kicks the gun out of her hand and the epic chick fight resumes. Blaire hits Victoria with a convenient flower pot, knocking her down. Blaire begins to choke Victoria and Victoria pushes Blaire into a convenient glass table. Blaire again recovers the gun and engages in more talking. Victoria talks the gun out of Blaire's hand and they hug. The police arrest Blaire. See more »

Beautifully shot
27 July 2015 | by Film_DiariesSee all my reviews

Seeing many indie films out there, I have noticed that the quality on this production is amazing. The shots made all the actors look wonderful. Both the director and cinematographer did an outstanding job. The make up on the characters was pure perfection. The set design was superb. Lets not forget wardrobe as well. The color palettes for the characters were beautiful. I did enjoy Casper Van Dien's, palette choice. He looked amazing. Victoria Pratt was another favorite! Overall great cast! I must say that Patrick Muldoon scared me, and did very well in his role. Antoni Coroni, is one intimidating detective, and funny enough could definitely see him as a detective in other films. Richard Burgi is also another amazing actor. I enjoyed every character and definitely did not see that plot twist at the end. It is good to know that there are still good indie films out there but more importantly that take all of it into consideration.
