Come Back to Me (2014) Review:

Wow, I just said that this movie (from which I never heard anything before it appeared on Netflix), caught me totally off guard for I wasn’t expecting something that great.

Inspired from Wrath James White’s book The Resurrectionist, the plot involves a young woman who experiences strange blackouts that coincide with the moving of a strange new neighbor in the house nearby. No big surprise here, the neighbor is somehow involved in what’s happening, and the movie is not trying to play stupid by hiding it. Instead, consider it as a tasty appetizer for what is to come, for you will never be able to guess what this guy is all about. At least I wasn’t.

The first half of the movie is like an atrocious psychological thriller, reminding of the queasy feeling that movies such as Sleep Tight or Julia’s Eye are able to induce. The story, multi-layered and extremely well-told, keeps bringing more and more surprise as the scenario unfold, turning the movie into a fucked-up, Carrie-like, supernatural story towards the end.

Now, I read a lot of bad critics about that movie and I truly do not understand them. Like the very good Oculus released this year (which also received a lot of unjustified critics), Come Back to Me tries very hard to create something new. Maybe some understood the story quicker than I did and so we’re not as surprised…but still, one cannot blame that movie for trying hard!

The only thing that turned me off was the acting, and especially the main female character, who I found to be quite annoying. It is one of the only reasons why that movie, whose story is so spectacular, does not get an even better rating.
