The Mystery of the Shadow Man
16 August 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The decorated military pilot Ben Costigan (Jeffrey D. Samms) seeks out Dr. Nathan Bradford (Bruce Greenwood) since he is dying due to the dreadful nightmares with a shadow man. The researchers Kate Russell (Naomi Watts) and Vincent Konefke (Abraham Benrubi) are sent into Ben's dream and discover that it is related to his childhood. They travel to Ben's hometown in Bethlehem County, disclosing the mystery of the shadow man.

This pilot episode was released in Brazil in a single DVD with "Counting Sheep" and introduces the nice characters of this series. However, the mystery of the shadow man startles but is disappointing with a confused and unconvincing story. There are terrible and shameful mistakes in Brazilian title and the original title on the cover of the Brazilian DVD. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Entre o Bem e o Mal – Quando a Realidade Termina" ("Between the Good and Evil – When the Reality Ends")
