NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING

"I bought Ink on one single recommendation from a stranger on a forum here on Amazon. I've never been so pleasantly surprised by a blind movie purchase in my life!
Ink is an independent film, not with an enormous budget, but it doesn't stop it from being an incredible film with gorgeous visuals. You can see how much work went into every single second of this film. This movie stands out among everything else I've seen in a long time. Absolutely unique. The acting was fantastic, especially the acting from the young girl Quinn Hunchar, playing the character Emma. The ideas were original, the characters interesting, and the plot was engaging. And the ending... prepare for one hell of an ending. And some of you will need to keep some tissues close... A description on the back of the package compares the movie to Brazil, Donnie Darko, The Matrix, Dark City, and Pan's Labyrinth. I would definitely group it in with those films, although it is not a ripoff of any of those films at all.
Quick synopsis: there is another world, a dream world where two sides are fighting to control our dreams. Some our bringing us pleasant dreams, and others, the incubi, are bringing us nightmares. A battle ensues over the soul of a little girl named Emma, trapped in their world while in a coma... and the deciding factor falls on two men: John in the waking world, Emma's father, and Ink, a rogue warrior in the dream world, fighting to rid himself of his scars and shame.
This movie is absolutely incredible, please do yourself a favor and check it out."
A remarkable, moving Independent film

"I saw Ink at a film festival in Annapolis, MD. I was unprepared for both the power and the originality of this independent film. It is the story of a young girl who lives in a dark dangerous world where different forces having fantastic powers try to influence dreams for good or for evil. The girl is being raised by dysfunctional parents and is put into danger by a creature nicknamed, "Ink". The effects are fantastic for a film made without the benefit of traditional industry funding. The suspense and fully realized characters are the equal of any "Hollywood" film and it was the best film I have seen in years.
Ink is filled with unique, original characters and you will fall in love with the character of the little girl. I literally could not take my eyes off the screen due to the fact that I really cared about what was going to happen to these people. This is a film I guarantee you will never forget. Don't miss it!
I hope the success of Ink propels Jamin and Kiowa Winans to make many more remarkable films."
Unlike Anythign You've Seen

"I read in Joblo that this was "absolutely one of the best movies of 2009" and I am always on the lookout for good fantasy so I had to see it. Th trailers were great and the reviews were great, but none of them capture how good this movie is. I watched it hoping for a good scifi flick, and ended up with tears in my eyes. It's brilliantly edited, visually incomparable, and well acted. It's the kind of movie you will watch multiple times and continue to uncover new elements of the story. Yet it's still amazing on the first viewing. Get this movie and be prepared to be confused AND entertained! Hahah. DEFINITELY, one of the best moves of 2009. One of my favorite fantasy flicks ever."
