Lukas (Brandon Slagle) and Sera (Andrea Chen) have gtheir second wedding anniversary, and it couldn't have been a happier and more romantic day. The next day though, Sera is gone. No, not just gone, she has taken everything she owns with her, has erased all traces she has ever been in the apartment or in Lukass's life even, has vanished into thin air without any kind of good-bye just like that.

To cheer his colleague up a bit, Damon (Dee Martin) takes Lukas to a bar where the two of them get royally drunk. At that bar, Lukas picks up Nara (Devanny Pinn), takes her home with him, and the two end up having sex. The next morning, Nara is not only still there (no big surprise here) but she has apparently moved all her stuff in over night, and has sprinkled the apartment with memorabilia of a past life of her and Lukas together, a past life that never was. When Lukas wants to throw her out, she claims she has been his wife for the past two years, and when he insists on her leaving, she has a mental breakdown - that eventually leads to her suicide ...

During the day, Lukas finds that the world as he knows it is transforming, very subtly though, but transforming, still. It seems like walking round streetcorners can lead to whole different parts of the city, things that just have been here are not there anymore or are there though they are not supposed to, and even memories these days seem to be something vague and at times untrue. The more Lukas investigates what's going on, the more he comes to the conclusion that there might be parallel worlds he is passing through - but he has too little time to try to make sense about what he has found out, because he suddenly finds himself on the run from some ... guys he doesn't even know or is able to place.

Eventually, Lukas is captured, tied to an operating table and made ready for some kind of weird surgery ...

An interesting piece of science fiction cinema that refuses to rely on action and special effects, instead presents its audience with an intelligent, labyrinthine story that questions reality as we know it. However, this does not make 15 Till Midnight a brainheavy message movie or anything, instead a solid script and a well-paced and subtle directorial effort see to it that the film comes across as entertaining genre fare that (for a change) does not insult its audience's intelligence. That lead Brandon Slagle really finds into his (self-written) character does not hurt one bit either, nor does a competent supporting cast.

Recommended, actually!
