Directed by Scott Speer. Written by Jason Fuchs, based on the novel “Break My Heart One Thousand Times” by Daniel Waters. Starring Bella Thorne, Richard Harmon, Dermot Mulroney, Amy Price-Francis, Shawn Benson, Thomas Elms and Louis Herthum.
Plot: 10 years after an apocalyptic event killed millions, the world is inhabited by ghosts or “Remnants”.
10 years after the event that killed so many (caused by the government, of course), Veronica (Thorne) sees ghosts just like everyone else. But she even has breakfast with one every morning, her father. Mr. Bittner (Mulroney) teaches a class at school on the Remnants. How they are not supposed to be able to communicate with people and other such rules. So, when a Remnant in Veronica’s bathroom writes RUN on her bathroom mirror, she goes to Mr. Bittner, but he doesn’t believe her. Then, she goes to Kirk (Harmon).
Kirk is the bad boy at school, but he believes her. He studies the Remnants and doesn’t think it’s so crazy. So, they start working together to find out exactly what RUN means. It leads them to some crazy places and it was all pretty predictable, but pretty good actually. From all the negative reviews, it was a lot better than we thought it was going to be. It was original, realistic, had an incredible cast and a spectacular ending. I liked the story more than DJ though. And we were kinda pissed that there were several areas where boobs could have been, and yet there were none. I guess they were trying to make it more of a family-friendly ghost film. Whatever.
All the reviewers say it was convoluted garbage, but we just don’t know what they were watching. We recommend it with two thumbs up.
My score: 73. DJ’s score: 59.
