A lean and effective horror thriller about the twilight zone between life and death, this film mixes science and the supernatural in equal proportions —with a story that's smarter than the average genre script. Mark Duplass and Olivia Wilde headline as Frank and Zoe, two ambitious scientists interested in reviving dead tissue. When Zoe makes a roundtrip to the afterlife, things get weird. The filmmakers think enough of their audience to provide a story that holds together—which is more than you can say for most entrants in this arena. It's a good scary movie. No complaints.
