Stars: Elizabeth Rice, Thomas Dekker, Kelly Blatz
In a small Maryland town, the suicide of an outcast teenager triggers a string of violent suicides. These suicides seem to stem from a curse which spreads when any person, who witnesses the suicide, is possessed by an evil force that appears as the person's doppelganger that only they can see. A young teenager, named Lindsey, thinks there is a connection of the events to Aidan, the outcast brother of the first suicide case. But Lindsay must race against the clock when she witnesses her mother fall victim, and must try to find a way to stop the curse before it kills her too. Meanwhile the God-fearing townspeople, led by a fanatic preacher with a connection to the events also, form a vigilante group to take the law in their own hands.

The scene where they run into the woods is clearly shot in day-for-night mode. You can see shadows and spots of sunlight, as if it was filmed in the middle of the day and then darkened.
I was lucky enough to see this movie at its premier at the Tribeca Film
Festival, and I must say that I truly enjoyed it. Normally, I am not a
huge fan of the horror film genre, but this film proved that it was
much more than a "put 10 people in a house, and kill them off
one-by-one" flick. I found the story line interesting, the
cinematography on-point, and the acting, especially that of Elizabeth
Rice, excellent. Contrary to the previous person's review, I found the
cast to be quite likable, and I also appreciated the occasional shots
of humor, particularly those from the visiting female cousin. One final
facet of the movie that I thought was compelling was the musical score
— very effective in contributing to the mood. IMHO, From Within is
definitely worth seeing, and it should do very well when it is released
for general viewing.
