Mini Film Review: We Go On – Dir. by Jesse Holland & Andy Mitton. 👍

This film is currently playing on Shudder. Not knowing anything about this film prior to seeing it, I wasn’t expecting much. I knew it was an afterlife/seeking ghosts flick and that it would have to be pretty damn good to hold a candle to that genre. Numerous films have done this premise, and quite well I might add. Stir of Echoes was great.

This film doesn’t bring anything new to the table in terms of premise, per se, but it is entertaining nonetheless. I enjoyed it. It had decent twists in it as well and the acting was surprisingly good.

This film, while polished, looks like a made for cable TV film but that’s not terribly distracting because the story moves along well. I usually enjoy films that explore the possibility of life after death without delving into the hokey aspect of it, which is easy to do. This one keeps it just serious enough to be creepy.

You won’t find any earth-shattering revelations in this one though, and it lacks star power, unless you count Annette O’toole, whom I had to look up to remembe why she looked os familair…48 Hours!

The soundtrack could have been MUCH stronger IMO (see It Follows), but it’s a good film nonetheless and I enjoyed it quite a bit. If you liked Stir of Echoes you’ll dig this.
