Visions Review


After moving to a vineyard to start a new life with her husband, a pregnant woman begins to experience terrifying visions.

Visions (2015) is an American supernatural thriller horror film that is 82 minutes and was filmed in Agoura, California, USA and Los Angeles, California, USA. Director Kevin Greutert (Donnie Darko (2001), Saw (2004), Saw II (2005), Saw III (2006)) did a phenomenal job executing this heart touching story about a family. Visions contains a few jump scares, violence, straightforward story, horror, tragedy, thrills, suspense, twist, and supernatural occurrences that make you think twice about the properties.

Visions starts by introducing us to what happened one year before David Maddox ( Anson Mount - Hell on Wheels (2011), In Her Shoes (2005), Safe (2012), Non-Stop (2014)) and his wife when they were involved in a fatal car accident. Present day, David’s wife Eveleigh (Isla Fisher - Home and Away (1988), Now You See Me (2013), Rango (2011), Wedding Crashers (2005)) is three months pregnant. The couple moved into their new home in a vineyard in Paso Robles, California and Eveleigh thinks their home might be haunted after she started to suffer from nightmares and hallucinations.

She met Sadie ( Gillian Jacobs - Community (2009), The Box (2009), Walk of Shame (2014), Gardens of the Night (2008)) who is also pregnant at a yoga class for pregnant females. The two ladies began their investigation to find out if Eveleigh’s home is haunted. They began by questioning real estate agent Glenn (Jeff Branson - The Young and the Restless (1973), I Spit on Your Grave (2010), All My Children (1970), The Big Bad Swim (2006)) who told them there is no horrible history. Glenn also told the duo to ask the previous owners, the Porters, if they know of any paranormal activity in the house.

Eveleigh’s visions are becoming stronger and more intensifying leading her to rely on her antidepressant prescribed by her OB/GYN. Eveleigh later is convinced that her husband has something to do with her visions as she stops taking the antidepressants. What happens next is for you to see as the story unravels and becomes genuinely exciting and thrilling. The director and writer did a fabulous job giving us details that were needed and did not over do it. The twist was straightforward and efficient but was not seen coming. There were so many thoughts going through my head as I was thinking, is Eveleigh going mad/hallucinating or is everything happening for real or are the neighbors stalking and could it be that David is actually involved in her madness. The ending was a shocker, and I love how it was tied into the movie and not forgotten as we see in a lot of movies where it starts with one subject and ends with another. The cinematographer, sound department, editorial and special effect department did a fantastic job.
