Plot:

Aspiring serial killer Soren (Zach Steffey) abducts his first victim Miranda (Annabel Barrett) and kills her. However, both he and Miranda are shocked to discover that she is mysteriously unable to die even when he attempts to kill her twice more…

Reviews:

“Apart from the clever script Miranda Veil benefits from excellent performances by the two leads. Annabel Barrett is likeable and believable as the young woman who has her life repeatedly turned upside down. Steffey actually manages to make us feel for his character, pushed and tormented by the voices in his head and ultimately fighting them and trying to find redemption.” Voices from the Balcony

MOVIES and MANIA comment and rating:

Nicely shot by Josh Andersen and well-acted, especially by Annabel Barrett as the titular character, Levin Garbisch’s overlong movie clearly had the germ of a good, if not bizarre, idea. Unfortunately, the film’s intriguing and unique concept descends into metaphysical musings and nonsensical character actions – Stockholm syndrome, really? – that most viewers will find a chore to sit through.
