Review:

Coherence is an intriguing thriller revolving around a comet. A close knit group of friends has gathered together for dinner for the first time in a long time. As the comet passes cell phones and other glass items break. There is no cell reception and the internet is down. Eventually power goes out and panic sets in. A couple of the guests walk through the blacked out neighborhood to go to the one house that has electricity. Strange things begin happening as the houses seem to be located in the same space-time. They also find a box with photographs of all of the guests. with numbers on the back of each.

The group try and unravel the mystery of the photographs and also in general what is happening. The mystery is extremely compelling as is the supernatural element presented by the comet. It generates genuine tension as the group descends further into paranoia. The score is minor, but perfect for the movie.

Verdict:

It is a great low to no budget thriller mystery with a science fiction bend. See it.
