Leonard and Kathy, with their daughter of three, having developmental issues, decide to move to Leonard’s grandparents’ place, where he grew up. The story basically revolves around the creepy incidents that occurred after they settled into their new home.
Story development is rather slow as the story takes a vintage approach to horror, with the transfer and appearance of a supernatural creature who has a connection to the place. The story tries to enlighten the effects of rape on the victims in a horror movie-style way.
The movie Can Be Streamed On BET+
The response from the audience is rather low for now since the film is a low-budget horror; that might not appeal to some horror buffs. Nevertheless, the storyline, cast, and design seem unique for 2021. This film has a lot of potential, given the opportunity.
How To Stream The Movie?
The movie, ‘A message from Brianna’, can be streamed on BET+ from May 12, 2022. Bet+ is a newly developed streaming platform featuring a wide selection of movies, including ‘A message from Brianna’.
The above-mentioned movie isn’t available on Netflix, Prime Video, Hotstar, etc. So, the BET+ platform streams this show which requires a subscription of $9.99 per month, with commercial-free series or movies.
The movie stars Vernon Davis and Asia’s Epperson as the main characters, Leonard and Kathy respectively. Davis, a retired NFL (National Football League) Tight End, is now an executive producer and actor. Starting his own production company, ‘Reel 85 Production’, Davis is now focusing on developing the entertainment industry. Epperson is an actress known primarily for her role in GreenLeaf (2016), Straight Outta Compton (2015), and American Idol (2002).
Other cast members include Adaisha Strong as Crystal (the ghost), Kevin Benton as Bernard, Stan J. Adams as Pastor Hunt, and Liana Kristina Mayer-Reinach as Brianna.
Coming to the end of the movie, the director and writer, DeShan Hardy, seems to embrace the idea of leaving the rest of the imagination to the audience themselves. The last scene showed how Leonard (Davis) had accepted the possession of his wife Kathy’s body; by the spirit of his childhood crush; Crystal, who was using the body of Brianna as a passageway to the real world.
They have a perfect life, the dream family now. then Leonard’s grandfather’s; who used to be the abuser of Crystal, before his wife killed Crystal when she was pregnant, look-alike person gives Crystal a smile which she returns back.
This raises the question, now that they’re both dead, is there any possibility that he might try to possess Davis’s body in order to get Crystal? Or will Crystal finally be able to take her revenge?
Without expanding our ideas further, it is better to let things be and accept that they are a happy family now. And, the ending cleared one thing for the audience: Crystal wasn’t the villain in the story, at least not the only one.
