The Shadows | Chicago Reader

The Shadows

A millionaire horror novelist (Joe Lia), reeling from a divorce and sweating a book deadline, goes for a drive and accidentally hits a penniless artist (Emett Allen); this minor accident touches off a whirlwind gay affair, and the writer decides to fake his own death so he and the younger man can enjoy a bohemian life together. Filmmaker Guillermo R. Rodriguez seems to have been inspired by Secret Window and the long tradition of chillers featuring identity switches, split personalities, and doppelgangers, but his neophyte actors aren't skilled enough to pull off his gender-bending twists. 80 min.
