OTHERLIFE (San Diego International Film Festival San Diego California USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

generously delivers that ‘edge of your seat feel’ combined with a mixed feeling of ‘weird coolness’ that has not been often captured in entertainment. Australian Director Ben C. Lucas takes audiences by storm in this WOW piece of entertainment. The actors and actresses are fresh and born fully developed. The movie is a mind twister that delivers full value.
