In 2016, a film in horror genre was announced — «The Shadow Within». The movie “Within” trailer came forward as an announcement. Tiago Mesquita became the stage-director that took off featurette mainly. His most popular previous film was «Death and Cremation».
Movie release date is within 2017. Nothing more precise is known at the moment. The budget is small and the production goes slowly. The leading role was occupied by not unknown Lindsay Lohan, who, prior to this project, we will remind, did not have an experience in crime and horror genre, and played mainly in comedy and drama. The cast of the film includes some other popular actors. One of the main roles of the second plan is played by Gianni Capaldi, who has worked in film industry already long enough. Also, newly made actors, for whom this film must become a debut, are present in a film, such as Charlotte Beckett, Dominik Madani, Reynald Biales et al. Mark Morgan, came forward a scenario writer that also is a new person in the cinema.
Beckett has starred in several television dramas and a horror series. Capaldi has about 8 years of film experience, he played the main role in a movie with a similar name — “The Wicked Within”. The plots are not connected in any way, and this may be a good thing because the earlier picture was a failure — it was accepted neither by the critics nor by the audience.
The most experienced actor of the movie is Daniel Kelly. He was a star of the 70-s and the 80-s TV shows. He starred in Stephen King’s “Kujo” — the story of the mad dog. He is leading an active acting career, but he mostly plays support roles. Let’s hope he will share his talent with the young colleagues.
The main idea of the film
Inside us, there are shadows of the past and mysteries that we prefer to hold back from surroundings, but sometimes it so secretly, that to conceal them would only be a benefit to the people. The same thing happened with our main heroine.
The plot is built around the adventures of a girl named Patricia. Patricia seems to be the most ordinary girl. All her life she dreamed to investigate crimes, therefore she decided to get a legal education. After completing the most difficult education process, the heroine of the horror «Shadow within» began the career of an investigator. Working in an inquisitorial department, she got necessary experience, but the authority did not give to her a chance to expose her talents. Not giving a freedom of actions strongly limits a detective. The girl decides to go away from police and to open her own criminal investigation agency and take up investigation of crimes.
Girl’s work was to expose stranger secrets and mysteries, but only a few knew the secret of Patricia. Patricia succeeded to expose a few murders and substantially to help people. She has permanent clients, good payment, and a favorite work. Soon, she runs into the most enigmatic death in a career. The unknown killed the uncle of the heroine. The girl has suspicions regarding killers, but she does not wish to report about them to police. Parallel to the constabulary investigation, a woman undertakes independently to find a killer and makes an effort to hide the secret about family. It appears that she is the descendant of an ancient tribe of werewolves.
Theme of werewolves all are known already a long ago, but in this cinema picture, a werewolf is a positive character.
When does Within come out is unknown, because only the year was indicated, but we will hope, that it will happen soon enough. The fans of the low-budget horrors will love to add it to their collections. The internet critics are already in anticipation of another movie that they can mock. Of course, it is easier to sit in the armchair and criticize than to make a real movie. The director is rather young but the producers gathered several experienced actors who may pull the movie to the top of the ratings.
To talk about success or failure of this film will be possible only when Within is coming to theaters.
