Boring beyond belief

The 'Nomads' here don't really seem to follow any kind of "rules" like typical 'spirits' would in a movie about the supernatural. Not being confined to haunt a single location is fine since the title implies that. They come out in day & night time though? No rule about why some see them and some don't other than MAYBE awareness of them but that feels like a flimsy inciting incident to chase a guy down. He doesn't even take the photos to the police. For how intense the poster art is, the film is too subtle except maybe the Nun sequence. The flashback possession progression takes up a lot of the movie. But the acting is fine, the cast is pretty, the music is solid 80's, & the shot composition is nice. I wanted to like it more but it's over-indulgent in the writing but not enough in the spectacle. "Twist ending" was the best part.

From the director of Die Hard & predator comes a pretty boring debut film.

It has an interesting premise for sure but the first half is better than the second which lost me a little bit but the idea of Nomads was cool. Some would say that yeah it doesn't fully all come together but some good action and keeps you thinking which I like.

Remains one of my top five faves. Wickedly smart, insidiously sinister, and narratively compelling, especially for the 80’s. If you like your horror intelligent, stylized and haunting, this woefully underestimated gem is for you…
