Emotionally distraught and experiencing strange hallucinations
after witnessing the aftermath of a bizarre murder, forensics photographer
Adam retreats from the world, until detective Man arrives
at his doorstep. Another murder has occurred, one with undeniable
similarities to the one that pushed Adam over the edge. Adam’s help
is required to unravel the mystery. It revolves around corpses drained
of blood, impossible feathers and antique photographs that appear
to capture Adam’s beautiful new neighbor Iva decades before she
could have been alive. As Adam is drawn further into Iva’s tribal
world and Man delves deeper into his investigation, they discover
the city’s mystical underbelly of shamans and supernatural beings
as century-old superstitions come to life.
Interchange is a supernatural thriller with a Seven-like atmosphere
that comes straight from James Wan’s native country! But the undeniable
added value that director Dain Said brings is the rehabilitation
of spirituality and shamanic rites that transcends the morbid
investigation and points to a single culprit: 21st century modernity
which, in the name of progress, has swept away a cultural heritage.
The cinematography is as hypnotic as it is vertiginous and brilliantly
calls the narrow-mindedness of modern man into question.
