Emotionally distraught and experiencing strange hallucinations after witnessing the aftermath of a bizarre murder, forensics photographer Adam retreats from the world, until detective Man arrives at his doorstep. Another murder has occurred, one with undeniable similarities to the one that pushed Adam over the edge. Adam’s help is required to unravel the mystery. It revolves around corpses drained of blood, impossible feathers and antique photographs that appear to capture Adam’s beautiful new neighbor Iva decades before she could have been alive. As Adam is drawn further into Iva’s tribal world and Man delves deeper into his investigation, they discover the city’s mystical underbelly of shamans and supernatural beings as century-old superstitions come to life.
Interchange is a supernatural thriller with a Seven-like atmosphere that comes straight from James Wan’s native country! But the undeniable added value that director Dain Said brings is the rehabilitation of spirituality and shamanic rites that transcends the morbid investigation and points to a single culprit: 21st century modernity which, in the name of progress, has swept away a cultural heritage. The cinematography is as hypnotic as it is vertiginous and brilliantly calls the narrow-mindedness of modern man into question.
