Take Me With You

An outlandish sci-fi that tackles grief and friendship with a comical underbelly.
3/5

Review

Abraham Howard’s sci-fi comedy is a delightful and offbeat matinee that dives into the world of extra-terrestrial activity, grief, and friendship with an unabashedness that’s both absurd and touching. Joshua Howard excels in the role of the quirky and angst-ridden social outcast, lending his character a relatable vulnerability that makes it easy to root for him as he navigates the complexities of life in small-town Maryland.

The dark humor that permeates the film is both charming and poignant, providing a seemingly perfect counter-balance to the more emotional and poignant moments, which will leave viewers feeling oddly melancholic. The cinematography and special effects are also notable, showcasing a level of artistry that elevates the overall production.

But what makes this film truly stand out is its poignant take on themes of grief and friendship. The story veers away from typical sci-fi tropes to offer a genuinely fresh and original take on these subjects, emphasizing the power of community and the importance of never losing hope even in the darkest of days.

Overall, Abraham Howard’s sci-fi comedy is an enchanting and thought-provoking adventure filled with creative ideas, outstanding performances, and a unique blend of quirkiness and heart. Highly recommended for anyone looking for an unconventional take on the sci-fi genre.

Brief Synopsis

Through the power of song, dance, and a pile of old fireworks, a loner beefcake goes on a musical suicide mission to save a supernatural child.
