review by
Mike Haberfelner

There was a time when Becky Carmichael (Gabrielle Banville) was "someone", a successful singer with a plethora of fans. And even though she might still be young, she now sees these days behind her, feels burned out, and claims she can hardlyhold a note anymore. And this is when her brother Jesse (Tristan McIntosh), a bit of a "black sheep of the family", asks if he may move in with her as he has lost his job. Becky agrees to that and accepts him back into her life, especially since their parents have only recently died, leaving a void in her heart. Then one night, Becky's brutally attacked on her way home and finds out her attacker was actually a "fan" claiming to help her live out one of her own "fantasies" - which is when Becky learns her presumably fleeting fame has taken on a life of its own, and there are many mock Becky Carmichaels out there delivering to pretty much every fetish in the book. So ultimately, this realization is much more upsetting to Becky than the actual attack. She eventually turns to an online self-help group against cyber-bullying, and soon enough meets a lovely lady, Amber (Maissa Houri-Charron), who has gone through something not at all dissimilar to Becky's story. Thing is, the group is supposed to be anonymous, so why does Amber know Becky's real name? And what has Becky's brother to do with all of this?

 

Regarding narrative build-up, this film might be a tad on the slowburn side of things, but director Andrew J.D. Robinson proves here how good he is with handling emotional scenes, inasmuch as he both gives his actors all the room to breathe they might need but still manages to enhance the feelings in every given scene using all the tricks in the book, but in a very organic kind of way - but of course, a solid cast only helps with this. And what's more, Robinson also shows mastery in atmospheric yet subtle filmmaking to really drive things home. So what you might not even notice at first, this is a creepy one that's bound to stay with you for a couple of days after watching ...
