The Device Review
Synopsis:Two sisters discover a strange object of alien origin.
The Device (2014) revolves around two estranged sisters who reunites with each other after their mother passed away so that they can spread her ashes into a lake next to their family cabin. They were previously warned to stay away from the cabin, but we are not told why. Rebecca (Kate Alden - The Hollow One (2015)) stumbles upon a wreckage of some sort after running into the woods. Abby (Angela DiMarco - Trauma (2013), Karma Gettin’ (2014), Ship Shifters (2013)) finally reaches up to her for both of them to see a black orb looking thing. The girls took the orb to their cabin and showed it to Abby’s fiance, Calvin (David S. Hogan - Shadowed (2012), Paralytic (2016), Nancy Drew: The Final Scene (2001)) who can only think of making money off it. Abby began having nightmares at the cabin while Rebecca just wants to leave the woods, so the girls headed home.
Calvin took the orb out of the woods without the girls knowing and kept it in his basement because he thinks that it has powers, and he is determined to unlock it. Abby and Rebecca pleaded with Calvin to get rid of the orb once they found out but he refuses to as he thinks that he can make a ton of money from selling it. Abby’s nightmare becomes more intense, and now she believes that there is an alien that is somehow attached to the orb. Major spoiler - the orb was not made by humans and sheds light on the sisters past which made them realize that they have the fight to battle together.
The Device (2014) is an American sci-fi thriller horror movie that was directed by Jeremy Berg (The Invoking (2013), Trauma (2013), A Measure of Comfort (2010)) and also written by him. The Device is a sci-fi thriller with a good plot, good music, nice cinematography, somewhat believable acting, and focuses a little time on aliens which does not do justice for an alien based movie. The special effects were bad with the aliens being barely visible because they always fog around. The ending was predictable and was I happy when it came to an end because I could not tolerate the two sisters yelling at each other anymore because, for almost the entire 90 minutes of the movie, that is what they were doing, yelling. Overall, the movie was annoying, and I gave it a two because of the good attribute I mentioned above.
