By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on March 31 2015
Format: DVD
This is an interesting film about SUNDS, Sudden Unexplained Death Syndrome. A Baton Rogue (or there about) night time talk show host, Charlie Crow (Dallas Roberts) has a call-in guest who dies from SUNDS having predicted his death on air. He blames the "Shadow People" who come for him. Alison Eastwood (Clint's daughter) is called in from the CDC to investigate.

The film incorporates "actual footage" of the real host "Charlie Camfield" and various news feeds. The people in these "actual films" are different than the actors portraying them in order to give the film a sense of realism. I believe they are uncredited actors as the film also includes police interrogation films as well as people/news casters who do not exist in the world of Google.

Dallas Roberts did a good job, but the script was bland. Your villain is "shadow people" who only come if you imagine them. This is not a documentary about the syndrome. The scare factor doesn't exist... until you go to sleep. A well done interesting film that goes nowhere.

Actual studies are interesting as it appears people suffer heart fibrillation while sleeping. Younger males are most susceptible with epilepsy, stress (from relocation) and perhaps diet prior to bedtime (carbs) being linked as contributing factors.

Parental Guide: 1 f-bomb, brief rear nudity

Good subject but boring movie. Some athmosphere on certain scene. Could have been a hell of a movie. Nice to see Allison Eastwood ( Clint's daughter). Unfortunately we don't see her enough in movies, she is a good actress.

No suspense + no scares = Waste of money. Took a chance buying this and got burned.

I read the reviews and thought, hmm... sounds fantastic.
Its really quite a blah movie... you're probably more likely to find something frightening in your sock drawer than this bore fest.

I give it 5 snores!

Blu-ray Review: "Shadow People" March 15 2013
By ERSInk . com - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
Rarely do I come across anything in my viewing of horror movies that makes me jumpy or paranoid after turning the TV off. Most times I enjoy the film and then go on about my business with no worries. However, every once in a while a true gem of fear comes along and leaves its imprint on me as I shut off all the lights in the house and head to bed. Matthew Arnold's "Shadow People" had me searching the walls and windows for ghastly spots of unexplained darkness after watching it.

Participants in an experimental sleep study in the 1970s report seeing strange shadowy figures. They and several hundred other individuals die in their sleep soon after. The phenomenon was given the name SUNDS, which stands for "Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome." Doctors wouldn't talk about the shadows.

In the present, failing radio talk show host Charlie Crowe begins receiving calls from a teenager claiming shadowy intruders are coming for him. At first, Charlie believes the kid is mentally ill. His theory is challenged when the boy dies in his sleep. Things get even weirder when listeners of his talk show and people he tells about the mysterious shadowy figures begin dying in their sleep. Are these clusters of deaths a coincidence or are there sinister nocturnal forces at work?

"Shadow People" takes the sort of ideas our nightmares are made of and puts them in a visual package. Everything you've ever thought about someone or something watching you in your sleep is brought to life in this creepy little indie film.

Director Matthew Arnold shows great promise through his mastery of timing. He has a knack for setting up what you would expect to be your typical jump scare and somehow delivering it in an off-tempo manner that leaves the viewer surprised and shuddering.

I can't say I completely agree with every choice of filmmaking he used for "Shadow People." The movie is presented in the manner of many true crime TV shows are. It's a re-enactment of "true events" with the actual people involved giving their commentary along the way. The concept is interesting but gets a bit distracting as the terror unfolds.

Many religious individuals would express their belief that shadow people are demons or evil spirits. Much like in "The Possession" or "The Exorcist," the person has brought something into their house that allowed the entity access. I am of that mindset more so than any other concept brought up in this.

If I were to compare "Shadow People" to other movies out there just as a way to spark people's interest, "The Ring" and "The Apparition" immediately come to mind. By no means is this a carbon copy of either of those films. They just came to mind as I sat watching it.

The audio and video transfers for "Shadow People" look and sound good. A few of the ghostly scenes created by CGI suffer in a high definition format, but it doesn't ruin the overall viewing experience. The musical jolts used in the movie's score will have the audience pulling their heads out of the ceilings of their living rooms.

The only special feature included on this Blu-ray release is a featurette entitled "'Shadow People:' More to the Story." It gives viewers exactly what it claims to: more information about the phenomenon known as "Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome" (SUNDS). It's short, but offers additional data to think about as you lie in bed eyes wide and darting around your room as you attempt to drift off to sleep.

"Shadow People" is that rare horror movie that leaves a lasting impression on its audience. The fear might wear off over time, but you'll never completely stop thinking about it. We all wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air, feeling like something is sitting on us, or thinking we're being watched. Is it just our imagination or could it be the shadow people?

True and scary March 22 2013
By Michael Levermann - Published on
Format: DVD
I thought this was going to be just another independent horror film with bad acting and cheap special effects. Even at the beginning when the "true story" introduction came out I thought "here we go one of those stupid Blare Witch knock offs" (not that I liked Blare Witch). It is not a "Found Footage film" it is a movie with real life footage seamlessly inserted throughout the film and this also made it different than most true story films. I also believe this makes the film better because you are getting to see the real people instead of having to wait till the end like many other true event movies and from the beginning it was interesting. As the movie went on, the mix between real footage and the movie footage that was very well done, the film captivated me. Watching this at home by myself one evening I can't recall another independent film literally at times sending chills throughout my body. I am not a person that is easily scared but I found myself looking around the room even after the movie ended. The film was very well filmed, the script was well done, and the cast was very believable. All in all this movie is well worth the watch.

One of the most unique horror films I've seen in years March 21 2013
By J.L. Perkins - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
If you've seen one independent horror film, you probably think you've seen them all. The genre is typically defined by a set of rigid features: wooden acting commensurate with your typical community college theatre production, shaky camerawork and cinematography which barely serves to convey the narrative in only its most rudimentary sense, and a plot with more holes than O.J. Simpson's alibi.

Shadow People, however, is not your typical indie horror flick. Dallas Roberts (The Walking Dead) does an exceptional job of playing Charlie Crowe, a small-town talk radio host who gets caught up in the mystery of the shadow people after a late-night call from a disturbed listener. His exploration into the phenomenon makes the film as much mystery or suspense thriller as pure horror and is spliced together with documentary footage. The resulting mode of storytelling is both effective and novel, making suspension of disbelief (a major problem with most horror films) that much easier and enhancing the overall feel of the film.

The film's camerawork and cinematography in general is reminiscent of a much larger production. Roberts' emotional range is expertly captured, inviting the audience to share in his brushes with the uncanny. Outdoor pans manage to give the audience a strong feel for the insular Kentucky setting in only a few seconds here and there. Lighting in the film's more traditionally "scary" scenes is viscerally creepy without being over the top. The overall effect conjures up several great horror films of the past, with a dash of film noir for good measure. Sound is equally well done, serving to enhance the ambiance.

Again, Shadow People is not your typical indie horror film. It is instead a well-crafted exploration of an all too familiar phenomenon (sleep paralysis, shadowy figures caught in the corner of one's eye in the middle of the night) that manages to be both suspenseful and genuinely creepy, and just might just have you dreading the next time you have to sleep alone. Definitely worth a watch.

This film had me literally jumping out of my seat! Great acting, directing, cinematography and storyline. A must watch, especially if you like scary movies, I couldn't even sleep the night I saw it. Shadow people delivers as believable, great storyline along with true accounts.
