Director siblings the Wachowskis let their imaginations soar to new heights with this interplanetary adventure. Repeating the formula of their Matrix saga, this time it’s Mila Kunis who learns that she’s “the one” and must leave her humdrum life for one a bit more exciting and CGI-rendered.

Do you like scary movies? Eschewing found-footage gimmicks and post-modern clever-dickness, this movie will have you gripped and not a little freaked out with its story about a spectral presence that simply won’t go away.
