Stevie is one of those really good movies that I stumbled on last night on Fearnet, but it doesn’t seem to be anywhere else and there aren’t any reviews so we wanted to bring it everyone’s attention since it’s worth watching plus it stars Jordi-Mollà and Catherine McCormack! Definitely a nice psychological thriller.
I love stumbling upon movies like Stevie since we knew nothing about it, and once again, expectation were low, but man this movie was really good on many levels. It’s not a balls out horror terror film, Stevie is one that is about dealing with grief and what happens when everything is held inside you. I know it sounds kinda lame, but this was a smart little movie that isn’t even listed on Rotten Tomatoes and no reviews whatsoever! I’m like c’mon, it starred Jordi Molla and Catherine McCormack, who make this film transcend the haunting material.
Here’s the generic description about Stevie. After a long and unsuccessful period trying to have a family, Claire (Catherine McCormack) and Adri·n (Jordi Moll·) finally adopt a girl. The coming of Isabel is desired by the whole family, but making a six-year-old girl with a past of her own fit into her new life might be something more complicated than they expected. Strange things start to happen from the moment Isabel and her imaginary friend, Stevie, come to live with them. The situation escalates when Stevieís behavior becomes aggressive. Only Claire and Isabel know that Stevie is more than just a creation of Isabelís imagination. Without help from others, Claire will do everything to find out who Stevie is and what he wants. Perhaps if she succeeds, she will be able to recoup their lives and have the family she had desired for so long.
What I loved most about Stevie is that it deals so much with holding on to things that should be let go and what can happen when you don’t let go. Sure, there’s been plenty of movies that deal with that subject matter, but Stevie really hits home on many levels, and I think that many people will be able to relate in one form or another. The trailer is so so, but it’s playing on Fearnet (On Demand) so catch it while it’s there. It’s literally the only place you can check it out actually.
Best Movies Ever Ranking: B+
‘Stevie’ is that rare horror movie that can scare you just as easily as making you get a little weepy at the same time. This is one film that somebody at the studio forgot about, and it should slowly build a nice cult audience over the years.
