“Spectral” is the story of a DARPA researcher named Mark Clyne, played by James Badge Dale, who is dispatched with a team of military, fighting elite to fight supernatural creatures. I found it hard to figure out at first if the whole World was overrun by these things or if it was just that region in Moldova. As it turns out is was just that region because that is where the experiment occured. When they discover the spectral beings they must then find a way to destroy them and in the backdrop is a war between assumed American forces and an other country. This confusion however adds to the mystery that is the spectral beings. As in so many action movies that claim to have roots in the deeper sciences nobody knows what´s going on at first and only the talented Mark Clyne is able to figure things out.

This is a movie with a lot of action and an interesting story. It pits the military against the supernatural and it´s eventually the problem solving abilitites of the top brian that finds a way to defeat the spectral enemy. Even though this film has a low budget feel to it, the story is very good, as is the action. I loved the idea of the military fighting the supernatural and how the movie seemed to be a post apocalyptic one at first.

This is an ambitious movie with good ideas and not-so-bad special effects. It´s worth the watch. Go check it out.
