Blessing (Blessing C.S.) can't take it at home anymore, her mum (Abrina Krasov) is getting more bizarre by the minute, suspecting her of all sorts of things that ... well, sometimes they're true, and trying to lead her into Jesus' arms. Also, Blessing's neighbours seem to be uniformly freaks, so it's no wonder she makes a getaway and gets high with her friends ... but then one of them dies (Azul Zorrilla) dies, and Blessing is taken in by the police and questioned - and almost accused of having murdered her - before she's let go inexplicably.

Blessing's friends start to drop like flies, but neither a visit to a shrink (Lloyd Kaufman) nor to a psychic (Reverend Jen) can give her any explanation for what's going on, but she becomes more and more sure that it's not or not just the drugs that are killing her friends, there might be a godlike unidentified being (Jude Thomas) behind it all - but that conclusion hardly makes her happy ...

Blondie-keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen makes a guest appearance as a father reading Blessing's story to his little daughter (Summer Greenberg).


Well, above is merely an attempt to describe what's really going on, as Wakers is hardly a narrative movie, rather a nightmarish trip that pays little heed to something like structure and rather pulls often dissonant ideas out of the hat as random. And regarding the fact that the director was only 17 when she filmed this and had to work with very low funds and home-made special effects, this sounds like a recipe for disaster ... only disaster this movie is not. It's a weird piece of psychedelia somewhat reminiscent in its "I don't give a damn"-approach of the movies of Andy Warhol's Factory from way back when, including its blend of drama and comedy, its improvised performances, amateur actors and rather freaky characters, as well as many trippy cinematic excursions from the 1960s and 70s, and what's extremely likeable about this here movie is that it doesn't give a damn about actually being liked by its contemporary audiences, it seems the filmmaker has put her own vision over everything else, and that leaves us with a very unique film.

That all said, Wakers isn't all the masterpiece it could have been - basically it drags on a bit too long to entertain from start to finish, some performances are a bit too uneven, and the film could have done with a bit more polish (not necessarily a money question, just some scenes could have been reshot as the actors seem to try too hard not to laugh and the like) - but being what it is, it's still a rather strong piece of whacko film, and it will be interesting to see what young Dylan Greenberg will try his hands on next!
