Requiem for a Poltergeist
Ink
Review by Ross Anthony

Sort of a merging of “Requiem for a dream” and “Poltergeist.” Ink is a fantasy project. It’s surreal from the outset, more image than words, and takes about 20 minutes before drawing an emotional investment from the viewer.

Never becoming a chatty piece, dialogue is kept to a minimum, outshined by a hand-to-hand combat which feels quite out of place in a film about life, death and the dream state. That said, the actual, chain-reaction scene is very nicely realized.

The last 20 minutes are the most engaging as the theme becomes clarified and emphasized. I especially enjoyed the “roar” of the child. Most of the special effects are B, but the flat-screen faced incubuses are awesome.
