The Sunrise Virtual Theater continues to add new movies in a variety of genres. This week’s addition is Extra Ordinary, a comedy/fantasy/horror flick about a small-town woman who reluctantly uses her supernatural abilities for good. “Extra Ordinary” will be playing at the Sunrise April 24 through May 8.
Rose, a sweet, small town driving instructor, is gifted with supernatural abilities, “The Talents,” which mean she can talk to the spirit world. Rose has a love-hate relationship with her abilities, after seeing what they did to her dad, and tries to ignore the constant small-time spiritual requests from locals — haunted rubbish bins, tractors, children's bikes, frying pans, etc.Yet when her help is requested by Sarah, a teenager whose father, Martin, is being haunted by his deceased nagging wife, she is very tempted ... Martin seems like a very nice man!
Meanwhile, in a large castle outside town, Christian Winter, a washed up rockstar, has a sinister plan to sell his soul for renewed success. He needs to sacrifice a virgin and puts a spell on Sarah, leaving her in a levitating catatonic state. Martin, bewildered, asks Rose to help him save his daughter. Martin and Rose set about trying to break the spell which requires the speedy exorcism of many ghosts before the spell is complete, and Sarah will be dragged into hell.
There is a building sense of attraction between the two of them, but neither have the confidence to act on it. Christian, aware of their plan to thwart him, finds a way to block Rose's talents. Rose and Martin must now work together to save the girl, stop a hell hole opening, thwart Christian's evil plan, deliver a baby, save a dying magpie, get rid of Martin's ex-wife so maybe they can fall in love a bit before the whole world collapses before their very eyes.
Critics are loving the new film which now has a 98 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
“Armed with wit and charm to spare, ‘Extra Ordinary’ is joyful and creative and deserves to find an audience — in this world or the next,” says Zaki Hasan of the San Francisco Chronicle.
