Storyline

"Bilocation" is a supernatural phenomenon in which an individual appears in two different places at the same time, which has been reported historically worldwide. What if your alter ego exceeds your experience and ability? And what if he/she tries to prevent you from standing in the way of him/her? Can you accept it, or will you kill the other "you"? Bilocation depicts the nightmare of an alter ego that endangers not only your identity but also your very existence. It is an imaginative psychological thriller unlike anything you've ever seen.

Not horror!
1 October 2014 | by gothic-fictionSee all my reviews

Supernatural? Sure! Drama! Okey! Horror? Why? Where? How?

Bilocation is a good movie, the plot is complex, twisted, keeps you there, even gets you on the edge of your seat a few times, but don't go in expecting scares, or even just plain ol' tension. I found it a tad bit hard to watch, cause, well, boredom is an important factor here, it does strike you a couple of times, but somehow I managed to watch the entire production. I am impressed with some of the ideas, originality is a hard concept these days, but I think if they wanted to make a horror, they would have. I do strongly believe it was chosen a different path for it, it came out as they wanted it, so for that, I will grade this with a 6.

It is something I can recommend, but not for a fun night, not for some spooks, but to get an eye on a different thing, another concept, a supernatural film most likely different from what you are used to. In the end, I can't say I'm pleased with it, because it looks truly beautiful, but completely odorless and tasteless. Do as you please.

Cheers!
