David Prior directs James Badge Dale, Marin Ireland and Sasha Frolova in this horror where an ex-cop investigate a missing girl, a curse and a cult.
Even though very little happens over quite an excessive running time, The Empty Man keeps you permanently on edge. The production has a consummate professionalism, executes a few genuine shocks and chills. The script is like four episodes of a prestige show binged together, though each from a different season of the run. It is all powered by the anticipation of some terrible thing about to happen, of some destructive cosmic truth about to be revealed. It is certainly unique enough, almost abrasively so, that you can see it building a significant fan following.
