The Afterlight (2011)


The Afterlight is a dramatic thriller about a young couple moving to the countryside hoping for a quiet new beginning. It doesn’t work out.

I honestly don’t know much about The Afterlight. The official synopsis is:

A young couple moves into an old schoolhouse on a desolate stretch of farm country. Hoping for a new beginning, their lives are instead drawn toward dark and unforeseen ends.

Whatever that means. There’s something with an eclipse also, but I don’t know what that means. This film is making me wonder what I DO know. Hmmm…

The Afterlight

The Afterlight was co-written and co-directed by Craig Macneill and Alexei Kaleina. I’ve never heard of them, and their IMDB pages don’t exactly help.

What’s Good About It?

I like eclipses. Just not the Twilight kind. Also, I think Michael Kelly is a pretty good actor.

What’s Bad About It?

It was supposed to come out a while ago, and never did. That means it isn’t good. Or that it isn’t commercial. Or that… I don’t really know what that means.

Our Clever Prediction

It’ll make buckets of gold if there are werewolves.
