Ink (2009)

The world of dreams is governed by the forces of light and dark, who face off in endless combat over the souls of the living. When a dark-robbed figure kidnaps the soul of a young girl, it is up to the Storytellers to awaken her father from his selfish stupor in order to free her from evil's grasp! INK is a mind-blowing visual masterpiece created on a micro-budget, which offers a unique fantasy world of found objects that rivals the ones found in MIRRORMASK or CITY OF LOST CHILDREN at only a fraction of the cost. Director Jamin Winans transforms the mundane into the imaginative through the use of creative camera work, practical effects, and a unique story structure as he weaves together his modern fairy tale. Winans enhances the emotional impact of the images on screen with his own original score. The combined results produce a touching character drama that will shatter all expectations and strike a deep emotional chord with the audience.

Rating: 8/10.

  2. I've been wanting to watch it for a long time as well, snagged it for $2 at Blockbuster when it was going out of business! Can't wait to see what you think of this and BEYOND THE GRAVE, Franc!
