Come Back to Me Review


Sarah and Josh are married suburbanites. After a car accident, Sarah suffers blackouts. As her life spirals she hides a camera in her home and unlocks a horrific secret with far-reaching consequences.

Come Back to Me (2014) is an American mystery-thriller psychological horror movie that is based on The Resurrectionist by Wrath James White. The movie is 90 minutes long and was filmed in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA and Santa Clarita, California, USA. Director and writer Paul Leyden did an amazing job executing his first full-length movie. He has done many TV series as a director. The movie contains sexual content, violence, resurrection, suspense, thrills, creepiness, and a mystery as to who is Dale.

Come Back to Me is about newly married couple Sarah (Katie Walder - Shelter (2007), The Neighbor (2007), Intervention: Cinderella (2011), Safe Harbour (2007)) and Josh (Matt Passmore - The Glades (2010), McLeod’s Daughters (2001), Last Man Standing (2005), Noir Drive (2008)) having spontaneous unexplained night terrors. Their night terrors began shortly after Dale (Nathan Keyes - The Kings of Summer (2013), Ben 10: Alien Swarm (2009), Blood and Circumstance (2014), Worst. Prom. Ever. (2011)) moved into the house next door. Josh and Sarah introduce themselves to their new neighbor Dale by taking over cookies that Dale did not like because they were bought and not homemade. Dale could not help himself from staring at Sarah because we later found out that Sarah reminds him of his mother. Dale witnessed his meth-addicted father murdering his mother, Eileen (Maura West - As the World Turns (1956), The Young and the Restless (1973), General Hospital (1963)) when Dale was only a teenager. The arriving police officers killed Dale’s father when they arrived because his father resisted.

The movie was good with a lot of twists that you have to pay close attention to. Sarah started having blackouts whenever Josh is at work and wakes up in different clothing than what she had on. She also wakes up in different rooms then she was in before and the rooms have been cleaned. Sarah told her doctor friend Leslie (Laura Gordon - Saw V (2008), Apricot (2009), Face to Face (2011), Alien Strain (2014)) about the occurrences. Leslie is pregnant and has experienced the same thing as Sarah and diagnosed it as night terrors and prescribed medicine. Sarah is still not sure that it is night terrors as one of her scars has disappeared, and Leslie has no answer for that. Josh decides to take Sarah on a getaway and while there, Sarah did not have any night terrors or blackouts. Her symptoms return upon returning home, and she found out that she is pregnant - Josh is sterile and leaves her. Sarah decides to put up cameras around the house and saw that someone has been raping her, killing her and then resurrecting her and that is why she does not remember anything.

Watch the movie to see the history of Dale’s past and why his mother is alive in an institution. I enjoyed watching this movie and will watch it again. It was definitely creepy and out lots of thoughts in my head about trust. The actors all did a fantastic job with their respective roles. The set and cinematography was well done. The special effects could have been better as well as the music.
