It's Christmas, and David Sherborne (Ian Mude) a private eye, and according to his own account a very bad one, bad enough to not even be able to find out his own wife (Julie Neesam) had an affair, is down on his luck. But then he's hired by legless but infinitely rich Fallon (Colin Baker) to find his only son Ian (Andrew Canadine) whom he hasn't seen in more than 2 decades. Thing is, nobody so far had been able to find Ian, least of all the police, and the last private detective Fallon had hired - incidently Sherborne's partner - had died in an "accident" ... and still, Fallon trusts Sherborne. Thing is, Sherborne has no idea where to even start - but then he finds Xander (Chris Clark) in a bar, a young man who just happens to have strong psychic abilities. Problem is, Xander can always get Sherborne close to Ian but never pinpoint his location - until the two find out Ian is probably the "Christmas Slasher", who (duh!) usually makes a few killings this time of the year. Now that's bad enough, but it's even worse that Sherborne's own daughter (Martha Watson Allpress) gets caught up in things, and before long, everything seems to be heading for disaster ...

 

So ok, Shadows of a Stranger does look quite a bit like a videogame as it was shot mostly in front of blue screens with artificial backgrounds and stuff filling in for actual sets, and that might seem a bit irritating at the beginning (and I won't lie, it was to me) - but once one comes to accept that fact, it's very easy to fall into the story, a very complex mystery tale with supernatural undercurrents that twists and turns so often along the way it will utterly surprise you quite a few times. And no matter whether most things are CGI or not, this is a movie rich on atmosphere, plus a first rate cast will also help you enjoy this one!
