(5 out of 5 stars)
"I GIVE THIS MOVIE A 5 STAR BECAUSE IT IS SO WEIRD AND UNUSUAL.IT'S AN ORIGINAL.IT'S CONFUSING.I'LL DO MY BEST TO EXPLAIN IT-BUT THE MOVIE'S MUCH BETTER THAN WHAT I CAN EXPLAIN.IT/BLACK CAPE,IS A SPIRIT,BUT ALSO TAKES HUMAN FORM.IT/B.C HAS BEEN AROUND FOR DECADES.IT/B.C HAUNTS PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THE "EVADING SOCIETY"-WHICH ALSO HAS BEEN AROUND FOR DECADES.IT/B.C GOES AFTER PEOPLE WHO HAVE A BROKEN SPIRIT.PEOPLE WHO SUFFERED A TRAGEDY THAT HAS EFFECTED THEM:WHETHER IT'S BECAUSE OF A DEATH IN THE FAMILY,OR DEATH OF A FRIEND,OR DEATH OF A LOVED ONE,OR BEING A DRUG ADDICT,ETC....EVEN PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY MENTAL.IT/B.C FIGURES THESE PEOPLE ARE BAD,AND THEY DESERVE TO DIE.IT/B.C KILLS THEM BY EITHER MAKING THEM SO SCARED-THEY TAKE MORE NERVE PILLS THAN THEY SHOULD-THEY OVERDOSE,OR HE STABS THEM.THE REASON WHY THE SOCIETY CAME ABOUT WAS BECAUSE IT/B.C MADE ITS PRESENCE KNOWN TO THE PEOPLE IT WANTS TO KILL.THEY FORMED THE SOCIETY IN ORDER TO COPE WITH THE FEAR OF IT/B.C,AND TO DEAL WITH THE SITUATION THE BEST THEY CAN.THEY FEEL THAT IF THE GROUP STICKS TOGETHER-THEY'RE SAFE FROM DEATH,OR THEY CAN COME UP WITH A PLAN TO DESTROY IT/B.C.EVEN THOUGH THIS MOVIE'S DIFFERENT, AND STRANGE-IT'S VERY INTERESTING,AND IT KEEPS YOUR CURIOUSITY UP.IT'S NOT SCARY.IT HAS SOME BLOOD.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE TO PEOPLE WHO DO LIKE ODD MOVIES.I'M GLAD I BOUGHT IT."

"This is not the horror film that the cover art suggests. This is actually more like a psychological drama, along the lines of drug use and rehab that demonstrates a man's guilt of his wife's death in relation to his doings, with many what-if thoughts shown through flash backs. It's hard to get absorbed in this with a constantly changing dialogue which makes it confusing at times. The cinematography stays dull bordering black and white with very little color, probably to reflect the world as viewed from the distraught mind of this character. With that said, this could be interesting if you're into this sort of fare; but if you are looking for a horror film with this "black caped figure" this is not it; the figure is only shown like a disappearing shadow at certain times as if to represent the guilt. The idea overall is not a bad one so I give it 2.5 stars (I'll be generous and round up to 3)."
