This is easily one of my favorite movies. Dreams battle it out with nightmares in this science fiction, fantasy film.
Ink is a high-concept visual thriller weaving between two differing timelines of the conscious and subconscious worlds. The movie narrates the relationship of a father and his daughter in these two intersecting, parallel realms of existence.
There are people existing on an alternate plane of reality who enter our world through portals to influence our subconscious when you fall asleep via your dreams. One force, storytellers, deliver hope and strength through good dreams to sleeping people with a touch to their foreheads. The other force, Incubi, are spirits fashioned from vanity and pride. They veil their faces with screens reflecting an artificial eternal happiness while their shadows infuse the minds of their victims with desperation and fear through nightmares.
A mysterious creature, know as Ink, steals a child’s soul, leaving her physical body comatose, in hopes of using her as a sacrifice to join the Incubi and become numb. His journey brings him face-to-face with his shame and guilt. Will his soul be strong enough to survive the journey?
