Atom User Reviews for Between Worlds
not what I expected, but was entertaining
Between Worlds is also, unfortunately, a weird Twin Peaks homage, complete with industrial band ohGr's not-so-industrial, Twin Peaks-y score and Twin Peaks-like theme during the opening credits sequence (performed by Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti, no less).
Veering heavily into sexual territory, the film is more a gothic melodrama than a horror film. It certainly feels like a waste of not only Cage's talent (although the actor has a climactic, literally fiery scene that will forever change the way you think about the pop song Leader of the Pack), but also Potente, whose potential has been sadly underrealized in American films.
Between Worlds is a down and dirty supernatural thriller with the faintest veneer of substance covering the sordid.
