What is Black Box About?
Nolan (Athie) is a photographer who has lost his memories and his beloved wife in a horribly tragic road accident. He now constantly looks at photo albums and home-made family videos in an attempt to jog his memories. Nolan’s doctor friend advises him to see Dr. Lilian Brooks (Rashad), who is into alternate experimental treatments. She tries to trigger Nolan’s memory by plugging his head to a black box device that hypnotizes Nolan and he is able to access his memories in a virtual headspace.
Only his memories turn out to be super creepy, marked with the sinister and malevolent presence of “The Backwards Man” (contortionist Troy James, who needs no VFX assistance to bend his body in crazy ways, that is reminiscent of Linda Blair’s spider walk scene from ‘The Exorcist’). Things continue to get murkier as Nolan is shown memories of things and places completely unknown and yet somehow familiar until it gets to the point where there is no clear distinction between reality and hallucinations.
