About the movie:
In the world of The Empty Man comics, it’s been one year since the first reported case of the titular disease, and no drug has been able to slow its progress. The cause is unknown, and the symptoms include fits of rage, hideous hallucinations, and suicidal dementia, followed by death or a near lifeless, "empty" state of catatonia. As cults rise nationwide, the FBI and CDC enter a joint investigation of the Empty Man, racing against the clock to piece together clues to stop the cult and uncover a cure.

Did we like it?
The movie started really slow, I wasn't sure at the beginning what all it was about. then it picked up pace and it was an ok movie after that. It is a scary movie, so I wouldn't recommend it for kids. I have to admit I was surprised they didn't release the movie near Halloween, I am sure when you are in the Halloween spirit, even a not so amazing movie, might appear better than it is. Really weird to be watching this type of movie just after the holidays.
I would said that if you want to have a movie night with your significant other without the kids while enjoying some take out at home, this movie would just do the trick to keep you entertained.
