      Audience Member The dark and bizarre quirkiness wears thin about halfway through without revealing much else to maintain interest until it's weird ending. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member After Dark Movies are known mostly for true horror genre fans and Seconds Apart follows two geeky twins with mystic and psychic telepathy power to pull off tricks. Nonetheless, this plot have not been utilized to its full potential. The casting was good with Orlando Jones being the investigating detective but story itself is the primary issue in this movie. The cinematography is dynamic as color palate used here fits the scene and the background entirely. The opening scene is flamboyant to hold audience retention but ultimately it fails to deliver. In general, it is a decent horror movie with no jump scares but I will remember this as a twin blood and gore movie horror movie rather than usual horror movie. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review don s A supernatural horror from AfterDark that actually works - twins with telekinetic abilities perpetrating evil in a grand experiment to feel some sort of emotion for the acts they carry out. The twins are stronger when working together, however a young lady inserts herself between them and the bond begins to break... not ground breaking horror, but it has good gore effects, builds atmosphere and produces a believable enough storyline that you can roll with. One of the production company's better efforts. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member hmm, i kind of liked it. the story was interesting enough to hold my attention in the beginning -- should've known it would be a girl to mix things up -- but i really loved the end. when you find out what their home life is really like, it weirds things up a bit. however it was almost as if that detective was reading a script or something because his accusations, although they were right, were very outlandish to be made so early in the movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member After Dark Originals are known for being extreme horror films for the true horror aficionado. Most of these films have been as advertised, but no one has a hundred percent success rate. Seconds Apart follows Seth and Jonah, two nerdy twins, with extreme twin powers, mainly telepathy. They have fun pulling pranks and using it against the people they perceive to have wronged them, leaving them in a world all their own, but that all changes when a girl gets in the middle of things. The inherit problem with this film, is that these twins aren't creepy at all. Casting decided to go with looks over horror and these two look like they should be on magazines, like they would never have problems with bullies or girls, and as for psychotic killers with superpowers go, these two are so mild-mannered, that it made the story completely unbelievable. When you add to that the fact that Orlando Jones is the investigating detective at this upscale religious school, cracking jokes that no one gets, the film itself becomes the horror show. The story itself wasn't terrible, but the problem here is one we see all too often, the casting. These twins may be good for the Disney channel, but they aren't cut out to be psychopaths. I just found the whole film to be full of cliche's and very poorly done. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Another film that it could be better.

      R.L. Shaffer IGN DVD Offbeat, dark and quirky, with plenty of atmosphere. But the film strays into dull territory all too often. Rated: 6/10 Jan 29, 2012 Full Review Scott Weinberg FEARnet Every once in a while, After Dark Films delivers something solid. Like this one. Rated: 4/5 Sep 5, 2011 Full Review Mike Scott Times-Picayune Director Antonio Negret's evil-twins film would have made a nice, taut Twilight Zone episode. One of the half-hour ones.
