My Thoughts

The ID is a Psychoses Mental drainer type of film. Are lead is taking care of her father as his health is in decline. Over time we find out their relationship is mentally abusing and are lead slowly losses her mind leaving her at the end of the film in full break down mode.

The story is Good but its slow and I felt kinda of Abused at the end thinks to the father who was mentally abusing his daughter when she was taking care of him. A few other things will happen along the time line that will make her snap even more. The film is Not really a horror film but is labeled as one, granted we get a jump scene but that’s it. It’s mostly a Physiological Thriller. Acting wise its OK but mostly it could use some work, but I will say Are female lead did a good job. It’s a low-budget film and it has that factor.

Overall The film was an OK viewing that left me kind of feeling the mental drain. I would have put that Old bastard in a Home haha. But the film does make you think what would you do in that situation.

With that said I give a 3 out of 5

Note: I Know my speakers are way outdated. OPPO Blu-Ray Player is one of the best around and used in most home theaters. The Receiver is pretty good but on the line of out dated. Subwoofer is good with tons of bass but not the theater quality from a $400 Sub. Front speakers are fun with tons of power and are good for standalone’s but higher end sound (Hz) is lower quality. Overall I need to update on all speakers granted I do get decent sound out of them just the higher end falls short.


About Masked Avenger

CEO/Webmaster of The Name Is James and I love Film ranging from Silent 20's to highly CGI Blockbusters of today. Westerns, Horror, world film, basically anything that peaks my interest I own it But Asian Films are what I Prize the most and Half of My collection Consists of Asian Films. Thanks to the Film 5 Deadly Venoms

I Hail From The US, Maryland Is where The Ninja Studies and views the Scrolls of Film That Shine on his 46" Screen. I own a sword, I can do a thousand upside down situps, and I randomly disappear in smoke when I'm not writing movie news and or reviews.
