The movie starts with a police officer driving home after duty. He then pulls over a green van for not having a license plate. When he sees a bloody sheet inside the van, he demands the driver to exit the van. And from the view of a dash-cam on his police vehicle, as the driver exits the van, the police officer suddenly being pulled away by something/ someone. 

Twelve hours earlier, Officer Renee has just been cleared to return to duty. She is being paired with a new officer, Officer Danny. They were ordered to check on a police officer who 'fails to respond' by a dispatch. They arrive at the scene - it was the police car from the scene earlier. Blood trails everywhere. Renee checks the dash-cam footage and she sees the officer being brutalised by an unknown someone/ something (the figure was too dark and moves too fast to identify). Later they found the body of the officer, hanging lifeless nearby. But the footage was missing when the force wants to verify Renee's story and everybody deems Renee as 'tired' and 'imagining things'.

Renee recognises the logo on the pants of the van driver from the earlier footage and starts her investigation. She manages to get the address of the driver and goes to the house, only to find it has been abandoned for quite some time. As she was about to leave the house, a dark entity approaches her and she leaves the house just in time. The dark entity vanishes.

She digs deeper about Taneesha, the driver and finds out that her son was killed in a gang shoot-out. 

Meanwhile, Taneesha is being harassed by two young guys while she shops. A police patrol car identifies Taneesha's van and decides to investigate. A shoot-out ensues. One of the guys holds Taneesha hostage. The guy who takes Taneesha was beaten down and thrown to the floor, bloody. As the police officer advances towards him, he points behind the officer where he sees a dark entity standing. Then a plastic bag is placed over the officer's face before he manages to escape. But he dies too - failing to escape from the dark entity.

Renee and Danny arrives at the store to find everyone dead. Renee steals the phone belongs to one of the guys, hoping to find some clue. 

What did she find? What is the black entity? And why the killing spree?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.3/ 5.0 The plot is timely - as people are still talking about racism etc. And the movie touches on the issue in a 'dark' way - pointing out the bad deeds never goes unpunished - here or in the afterlife. 

Not until the end of the movie that you'll know the real twist in the movie. 

Cast: 4.5/ 5.0 I know that Mary J Blige acts quite a bit but I didn't realise that she is this good. The only thing is - I don't quite get it when a police officer has beautifully pointed and manicured nails while on duty. 

Other than that, the cast delivers.

Will I watch it again: I don't mind watching it again. A good watch too. 

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
