Transference: Escape the Dark (2020) (BLU-RAY REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Matthew Ninaber
Starring: Melissa Joy Boerger, Matt Daciw, Eamon Hanson

Joshua must protect his twin-sister, Emma, who possesses supernatural abilities and keep her safe from an unstoppable secret agent hunting them for an experiment in a classified government program.

An X-Men movie if it was a horror movie is probably what I’d tell people Transference is. Sure, I know they have a movie coming out called The New Mutants that is basically what I just described but that things have had a million reshoots and we may never see it. You can see Transference now from Epic Pictures and it deals with a girl with some very strange powers. Powers that might make Charles Xavior think twice about helping her. Regardless, the plot here revolves around a pair of brothers trying to find help for their sister with some weird powers. But along the way the main brother is having to deal with kind of being stalked by a crazy person in a bikers helmet that is also doing crazy things. As I said, they seem to have “mutant” powers almost but trying to figure out just what the heck is going on is probably the most fun. The rest gets a little too trippy and perhaps a little confusing.

Seeking out a doctor to help his sister control her “gift” and the doctor being a bit too shady for his own good is what drives this one to the finish line. It’s a slow burn that turns into a weird one where you oftentimes can’t really tell what you saw that has really happened and what hasn’t. This ends up being a movie that leaves you with a bit more questions than answers and seems hell-bent on heading into sequel territory but I’m not 100% sure I’m on board for that ride if it was to happen. Still, this one has some strong visuals and acting performances. The plot gets a little too coo-coo for cocoa puffs at the end, but it is a well-made movie none the less.
