A breath of fresh air

"If you are looking for a breath of fresh air from the mindless dribble of Open
water, or Blair Witch Project...You've found it. INEXCHANGE is a thinking,
suspense thriller, about Maury, who is your typical quiet book worm college
student who wants to get the beautiful girl, Lara, but no way could he move away
from his cell of a dorm room and try to date her... until one night when he
meets someone that will change his life forever by resolving Maury's problems
one, by one. Zack Parker does a great job with his first full length film
bringing the script close to home for a lot of those lonely outcasts. He twists
long slow views, an obvious inspiration from Stanley Kubrick, and bursts of
intense reds and blues with an artsy feel to it. Sean Blodgett (Maury), Tiffany
Wilson (Lara), and Todd Richard Lewis (Jay) do a phenomenal job acting as well."
An interesting low budget/student film

"Inexchange is an interesting indie movie. It's clearly low budget. From the special features on the DVD, I gather that it was started as a student movie from the film department at Ball State University in Indiana and completed after the principles had graduated. So, perhaps not quite a student movie, but not far removed.
That said, for what it is, it is extremely well done. There is some obvious talent in the writing, directing, and acting.
It's a bit of a character study of the protagonist, who is a shy, introverted student at a university (go figure!), who is trying to fit in, who wants to meet girls (one girl in particular becomes his interest). Our hero is tormented by others at the university, frat types, sorority types, and so forth.
He is tricked into thinking that these "friends" are bringing him into their circle, inviting him to parties, and so forth, until they suddenly turn on him and make him the focus of ridicule in front of others at the campus. His love interest, a very pretty college student, comes to his rescue (lucky him!) and befriends him.
As our hero endures this ridicule by his peers, a dark figure becomes present on campus and begins to unleash some unspeakable horrors on the students who (coincidentally?) had tormented our hero.
Who is the dark figure? Why is the dark figure attacking these students in these horrific ways? Therein lies some of the interesting parts of the movie as the plot unwinds.
I was riveted through the whole movie. The story is intense, the portrayal of the lead character is intense, and even though the movie has a low budget video quality to the filming (which is why I gave it four instead of five stars), the visual imagery of the movie also comes through quite intensely.
It's a fine example of a low budget indie film. It's worth seeing!
