What a sick movie…I ́m gonna have to watch that again. That ́s the first thing that popped in my head after I had watched Kely McClung ́s “ALTERED.” You know how it is…you go see a movie, really like the special eff ects, the tough hero and the beautiful yet vulnerable damsel in distress, but that ́s about it.
Most movies don ́t leave a mark imprinted in your brains.The Shining or Inception were such movies; you ́re going to want to watch them again, you need to, no, you MUST watch them again. They are creepy and yet you have to go back to that place and get chills, although you know what will happen.
What came from director and writer Kely McClung ́s mind is both disturbing and morbidly fascinating. One can only assume it is ether movie making or mental asylum for Mr. McClung, there is just no other way to describe the level of insanity this movie carries.
Another big part of the movie ́s fascination is the main cast. Next to Kely McClung himself starring in this picture, there are of course Amanda Dreschler and Robert Pralgo.
Amanda is most known for Perception (2012) and Lost Angels (2014). She is a rising star on the silver screen and her performance in ALTERED is breathtaking. And it gets more in the person of “The Priest” Robert Pralgo. Robert describes the filming of ALTERED as “being outside your own body at times.” And this is understandable. Coming from shows like Vampire Diaries, which are
not mild on the creep factor, Robert has about one hundred fi lms under his belt, so he knows what it is like to be in that spot. But even for a seasoned actor like him, ALTERED was a hellish experience. The Priest is a bastard. A Demon. Satan in human form. There are simply no words to describe Robert ́s character; you have to go see it or yourself. But bring a friend, you will be terrified.
