Stephanie (2017)

Country:  USA

Director:  Akiva Goldsman

Main Stars:  Shree Crooks, Frank Grillo, Anna Torvo

Storyline:  A young girl is alone after a mysterious global crisis battling against an unknown evil entity.

Review (Spoils): Stephanie is home all alone except with her stuffed turtle named Franklin and her dead brother. The questions are where is everyone, what has happened and what are the strange shadow things that haunt her that she is hiding from?

Stephanie is a strange little film that has you asking the above questions over and over until about a little over half way through as the story line starts to show its light. The problem is I personally like the story line I had in head better (as you are guessing) more than the actual story itself.  Shree Crooks steals the show of the film that is for sure and the father would be a close second, Frank Grillo. Not sure if it was the lack of character build or just Anna Torvo but it was not believable.  Do not expect blood and gore at all as the film relies on the secret of what is really happening and the shadow creature so to speak.

Rating:  Honestly this film leans on Sci-Fi way more than horror. Sure, it has some unknown evil entity to it, but it was unbelievable that it became space like. This film could of went a few ways in the story line revel but unfortunate for me it was not a path I would of took as the final story. But like said before it was worth watching once and Shree Crooks played the character very well even outside of the crappy CGI.

5/10 Beers!
