Review: Foresight Killer Instinct (2013)


First I´d like to thank Duncan Cunningham for contacting me and providing me with a link to his movie.
Brought up in a criminally corrupt town local psychic Glen Parsons (Martin Cunningham ) is no stranger to crime but when his beautiful wife is brutally murdered and he is left seriously wounded something snaps. Detective Lance Steel  (Michael Edward Williams)is a corrupt cop whom uses the badge to exploit the innocent and corrupt. He soon crosses paths with Glen and finds himself battling the xenophobic young man's furore. As more and more bodies show up bearing Glen's mark a relentless criminal investigation is unleashed, entangling Steel and everyone around him. The gift of foresight was once a tool Glen used to help the desperate but now with a haywire brain the line between good and evil, sanity and insanity blur in a crescendo of blood-splattered violence. Foresight Killer Instinct is written by Aaron Cassidy and Duncan Cunningham who also is the director. The acting is pretty shoddy but the cast more or less makes up for it with their enthusiasm, the concept is really cool. The camerawork and editing is decent. The pacing is good and the soundtrack is pretty nice. The action sequences, and there are quite a few of those, are decent, there are shoot outs, fight scenes and knifefighting. It´s violent, very violent in some parts and there is gore, one of the highlights is when the main character performs surgery on himself but this scene and many others are way too dark to make out details. In some scenes, such as the self surgery, there is practical fx but in some it is computer rendered blood. There is no T and A in this.
This review is based upon an online source uploaded by the film makers.
Rating: 2½ out of 7. The shoddy acting could have sunk this into the abyss but the enthusiasm, soundtrack, pacing, action and a bit of gore compensates a lot. It would be interesting to see what Duncan Cunningham could do if he had a bit more money at his disposal.
