http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0884227/

Official site: http://www.within-themovie.com/

Rachel (Mia Ford) is a young girl with a terrifying secret. She can see evil spirits within others. After witnessing the brutal killing of her mother, she and her father (Sam Jaeger) move to a small town hoping to put the shattered pieces of their lives back together. Although Rachel continues to be haunted by images from her past, she manages to forge a strong bond with her teacher (Lori Heuring) and becomes best friends with a peculiar classmate named Michelle (Sammi Hanratty).

Soon, things aren’t quite how they appear when Michelle’s seemingly innocent pranks turn potentially deadly, forcing Rachel to fear their friendship while looking right in the face of the malevolent spirits she sees.

In a world where bad spirits never leave – they just find somewhere else to go – Rachel’s visions may be the key to stopping a string of violent attacks against the town’s children and unlocking the puzzle behind a devastating secret harbored by Michelle’s parents and a decade-old disappearance


This film has been anticipated at FLM for quite a while:
[REQ] Within (2008)
Within (2008) USA Theatrical release
[REQ] Within 2009
TV Announces - Within (2009)

That's because it sat unreleased on the shelf for two years. It had been well received at festivals but it was the director's first feature film and had only a $1M budget so apparently noone wanted to take a chance and release it, until finally it premiered on the Lifetime cable network. Thanks to kev for bring it to our attention! :clap

The stars from a FLM perspective are <img src="http://img697.imageshack.us/img697/7066/imdb3.gif" border="0"> Sammi Hanratty and <img src="http://img697.imageshack.us/img697/7066/imdb3.gif" border="0"> Mia Ford. Both turn in excellent performances. Mia is so sweet! :heart Given the film's production history I wasn't expecting much, I am not a big fan of the genre anyway, but Sammi and Mia :heart quickly won me over and I ended up loving it. :thumbsup

This file was ripped from Lifetime HD but is not a HDTV rip... I have no way to rip HD digitally so this is an old-fashioned lower quality TVRip. The logos and on-screen promos are annoying but they are much better than not having a release at all. This has likely been edited a bit for TV, IMDB says rated R but Lifetime says TV14.

Amazon.com lists the DVD as scheduled for release next month, but I don't see the DVD listed anywhere else and Amazon has been known to give false dates so who knows. If you want to catch it on TV you have (as of now) two more chances:
After its premiere, Within is slated for repeat airings such as August 15th 2010, Sunday at 7:00pm Eastern and Pacific time / 6:00pm Central Time, and in October for Lifetime Networks’ scheduling for Halloween.

I've always had a fondness for my bed, especially when it involves waking in the morning to find another eMule download has completed as is the case here!
I've been looking & was surprised nobody else capped & released this but our own FLL has come to the rescue......well done! Appreciate this guys, you may well end up with your BluRay or whatever but initially you've been given something quite unique. :clap
Although I've not yet watched this I shall do so during the course of the day. Like FLL, I'm not generally speaking a fan of the genre although I do find LG's & horror/evil quite an appealing prospect. I'm certainly not expecting a disappointment with the known cast however, unless the screens are lying!
I'm obviously complete on this & will help share what I'm guessing will be a popular release.
Many thanks FLL!

*whew*

I don't know where to begin, fll!!

Thank you for taking the time recording, then tweaking the results to give us the best rip possible. From what you were saying about it I was a little nervous, but after watching I found the quality to be fantastic!! Seriously, it was absolutely perfect.

I mean, beyond the annoying channel watermarks and popups that you had absolutely no control over [did you? :think ], the quality was as good as most of the DVD rips released here. Very impressive and I just can't say how indebted I am to you for grabbing this and making it possible for me to finally view!!

This was one of those movies that I've been anticipating for quite awhile and now that I've seen it I feel a pleasant gratification. It was no academy award winner, or deeply insightful movie: I just found it fun and entertaining.

Hokey and contrived at times, Mia Ford and [scene-chewing] Sammi Hanratty made the movie WELL worth watching. Whereas I was deeply disappointed with 'Tideland' [ANOTHER movie that I was anticipating and building up in my mind for over a year], 'Within' worked for me; leaving me satisfied that the hour and a half it took to watch it was time well spent. :)

Thank you again, fll for allowing me this pleasure! All the effort you put into this release is GREATLY appreciated!! :)

Thank you. :thumbsup

kev.

Ps: fll; here's a 10 min short I found of Mia pre-Within. It's called 'Imaginary Friend' by GreenDotFilms:

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/_NWfd0SvHZQ&hl=en_US&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/_NWfd0SvHZQ&hl=en_US&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

imdb indicates that it's on DVD somewhere... ;) If we can get a rip better than recording the YouTube vid, then maybe it could warrant it's own [REL] thread.. :)

Thanks! The quality is probably not much worse than a 1CD DVDrip, definitely watchable but not really sharp when viewed on a bigscreen TV. But this was the best I could get with this source, a quality=90% encode, whereas if you start with a DVD and do a 2CD sized DVDrip like loverboy and you do you can play it on a big screen and easily forget you are not watching a DVD. I compared this rip on a big TV vs the SD version recorded by my DVR and they are similar quality, this version a little better. But then compare it to the HD version on my DVR and the difference is huge. That was my concern with quality. If anyone could have gotten this in digital HD the difference would have been quite noticeable.

The annoying thing I spent time fixing was for some reason my DVD recorded the audio out of sync with the video, no idea why that happened, the cable company often recompresses the source and that's the only logical place but it's not supposed to happen.

And no, I have no control over the watermarks and ads at all. There are software ways to reduce or eliminate the watermarks but they work best with a static image in the same place the whole film, animated logos like this where they appear and disappear and add color at times would take forever to get right and still be distracting. And forget the promos, they take so much space that obscuring them would look terrible. So you don't see cappers removing the watermarks much any more. Better to leave them alone, the brain eventually ignores them.

Thanks for the short, I saw that listed on IMDB and hadn't gone looking for it yet. She's done another short too I think.

I was obviously very interested in the quality of this, particularly to compare with the captures I make. HD is not an option for me in the forseeable future.........this involves subscription (i.e. cost) which is something I'm not prepared to undertake. I also live in a sparsely populated part of the country with no cable availability & a considerable distance from the nearest TV transmitter. I'm therefore at the mercy of atmospheric/weather conditions both for terrestrial & satellite TV reception & a fragile power supply in inclement weather!
FLL's rip is of slightly better quality than my terrestrial rips & considerably more so than my satellite ones. This is entirely expected especially as my method of capture (DVB/PVR) can't be considered ideal but this is something else I'm stuck with until I achieve wealth!
I've come to the conclusion my captures are best reserved for TV shows/programmes & movies where there is no DVD alternative.......in particular our satellite movie channels that feature occasional suitable material are miserably cheap, suffering from clumsy cutting/editing, the ever present channel logo & quite often audio sync problems. I'm now only bothering with those movies where there has never been a commercial release or it was to VHS only.

Amazon.com seems to have changed from "Advance Order" to "Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock."
Which means the DVD release was cancelled, as I feared. Hopefully the showing on Lifetime caused enough buzz that someone will pick it up.

Ok, Amazon.com.DID have this DVD in stock but had only a very low stock and I
was able to get the last one they had.

The DVD, you will be surprised to know, is a DVD screener and on the DVD cover on the
top it says "DVD screener not for sale". Kinda odd that Amazon could sell this . They were
the only online store selling this movie , as others had mentioned.

Now, I will tell you that the DVD is a regular pressed DVD, not a burned DVD and, all
the DVD has is the movie. You put it in the player and the movie starts right up and
when the end credits end, it then just stops.

During the movie, about 4 times, at the bottom of the screen comes these words:

"PROPERTY OF BIGFOOT ENTERTAINMENT. FOR VIEWING PURPOSES ONLY". These
words stay on the screen for about 30 seconds.

Also, the picture quality is very good but has that off color look, which is always the way
with screeners.

The sound tho, believe it or not is in a full 5.1 surround sound and is very good!!

If there is an interest, I can scan the front and back covers of the DVD.

This won't be amazon, more likely one of their resellers who I'll be willing to bet is no longer a trading partner. Amazon will be less than impressed though that this has ended up on their site as will the film company be!
Artwork scans will be very interesting to see & I don't doubt others here will be clamouring for a full-blown release although in this case I would tend to be circumspect.

Whoa! I never in a million years would have suspected a screener on amazon. :onfire

Obviously we'd love the artwork, and a rip, and it would definitely be worth fixing the color as part of the process. And maybe even cleaning up the "for viewing purposes only" parts, which is often possible as well.

Here are scans of the DVD front and back covers. This was indeed sold by Amazon.com
themselves,no outside seller selling on Amazon. Must have had some kind of a deal
with Bigfoot Entertainment.
