Film Club Review 6:

static1.squarespaceThe Film Club hits its half-dozen with a low budget sci-fi thriller that was filmed in the director’s own house. The film is 2012’s Coherence and it deals with the effects of a power outage that coincides with the passing overhead of an astronomical anomaly called Miller’s Comet.

Chosen by our MovieMuse founder Gordon Sinclair, it is a suspenseful take on alternate universes that will boggle the mind more than it will scare.

You can hear the team’s thoughts¬†of the film in Episode 7¬†of the MovieMuse podcast below (at the 1hr 16 min mark). You can also read Gordon’s review or check out the trailer below.

Podcast Review (at 1 hour 16 mins)

  • Gordon: "I was gripped from start to finish"
  • Mat: "It definitely made my brain hurt"
  • Graeme: "It was really creepy throughout"
  • Simon: "It generated an amazing ambience"


Whilst the team questioned how quickly the characters accepted their predicament, there was general agreement that Coherence presents a mind-bending but believable tale with a creepy sense of foreboding that will have you on edge throughout.
