after the death of her husband, a psychiatrist continues her research of rampant insomnia found in nome, alaska. they all have the same vision of a white owl. abduction theories start to emerge. (personally i think the goblin king is to blame) based on a true? story.
i'm not sure what to think of this. i feel this is not quite authentic. there's too much pale make-up on the "real" dr. abagail tyler, and there is a little bit too much "this is REAL" announcements. that said, i did appreciate the style of split screening the "real" video sessions and the professionally acted ones, blending the voices, and lip syncing and all that. i thought this would be scarier. as far as real abduction movies go i think i liked "fire in the sky" better, but not a bad attempt on this one. i also liked the 'is she just grief stricken all kinds of crazy' angle to leave the viewer with a not quite certain feeling. the actor and director disclaimers were a little on the too much, eye rolling side. those could have been left out. especially with the epilogue texts directly following.
