The World Over: Review

The World Over: Review

An expectant mother, who finds herself home alone a lot with no company but her own, stumbles across a mysterious key when snooping around her house. She and her partner discover that the key unlocks a parallel universe, in which there is a couple identical to themselves living in a replica of their own home. Her boyfriend goes to investigate this strange occurrence, and cut to a few months later, he still hasn’t returned…

Director Heath C. Michaels has previous experience in the technology industry, perhaps explaining his gift for the sci-fi aspects of his film making. The World Over is somewhat a mixed bag of genres, with the main elements being fantasy, a splash of horror, and just the right dose of fantasy.

Tess Granfield and Brett Keating are convincing in the way they inhabit different versions of the same character, creating that confusing and somewhat disturbing kind of ending where you don’t know who is who and how many of this person there are. The reclusive nature of Granfield’s character makes it all the more terrifying that she suddenly finds herself in the company of another, slightly altered her.

The film is creepily enjoyable, and it packs a good amount of drama into the running time. The idea behind it is clever, and feeds into our own paranoia in a effective way. It is a great portrayal of loneliness and isolation, and the ending contains satisfying twists and turns. Definitely worth a watch!

When a reclusive mother-to-be discovers a door leading to a mirror image of her home, her husband goes snooping inside and never returns. Fearing the worst, she gathers her courage and goes in search of him, but instead finds her doppelgänger on the other side.
