Ink (2009, NR) directed by Jamin Winans, starring: Quinn Hunchar, Chris Kelly, & Jessica Duffy.
Ink is a movie that viewers will either love or hate, not too many will be in between. Ink is a movie about a young girl whose soul was stolen while dreaming, by a lost soul called Ink. Ink needs the young girl’s soul in order to join the evil rankings of the Incubi. The Incubi are individuals who bring nightmares, doubt, and anguish to individuals. A group of Storytellers, who bring pleasant dreams, hope, and joy to individuals, set on a mission to save the young girl. In the waking world the young girl’s father is on his own journey.
This is a movie I happened to enjoy tremendously and it is safe to say, I have never seen a movie quite like this one. What is intriguing about this film is the idea that our dreams and thoughts come from beings in an alternate dimension. The idea that our pleasant dreams come from storyteller spirits, that place dreams into your mind and incubi who place nightmares is what caught my interest. There are many theories dealing with the source of our dreams and though the one in this movie is fictional (or is it?), it had me wondering.
I recommend this movie for those who can follow a film that is different, intriguing, and has an ending that you may see coming, if you think like I do 🙂
