This isn’t the first movie of this type…most recently, Code 8 comes to mind (my review), but it’s one of the best. A father (Emile Hirsch) and his 7-year-old daughter (Lexy Kolker) live captive inside their house, hiding from the world. Turns out they’re Abnormals, a group of humans with special powers who have become feared by the world. The appearance of a stranger (Bruce Dern) exposes the girl to the truth. Even though the film manages to create some intrigue, the narrative takes a while to take hold. Sometimes it’s confusing what’s happening, but once the conflict amps up, the story gets really interesting. There are some basic, but well-crafted special effects, but it’s primarily the enthralling human story and the somewhat original take on the subject that makes this worth watching.  (Streaming on Amazon, Netflix and iTunes)

 

3.5 out of 5 stars (3.5 / 5)
