Genre: Thriller
Film Locations: England
Plot Summary: Jimmy Collins has lost everything from a mistake he made years before when he assaulted a man who attacked and nearly killed his wife resulting with him being sent to prison.

On the same day that he is released from prison, he discovers that he has a remarkable psychic-ability. When he touches people or their belongings he sees violent acts that have occurred in their past.

Now that he is out of prison he wants only to rebuild the relationship with his daughter Amy who lives with his ex-wife and her new husband and to return to a normal life. However, he sees the vision of a girl being killed and because he tells the police, they suspect him and he ends up behind bars once again. But soon they discover that he couldn’t have possibly done the act, they start to realize that he might be able to help them. Jimmy feels that he sees these visions because he is meant to right the wrongs he has done in the past and the visions are his way of paying his debt.

Review: One of the pluses about Empathy is the central performance from Stephen Moyer, an actor who has previously appeared in various British tv series and bit film parts, before subsequently becoming a regular as the vampire on the tv series True Blood (2008–2014 ). Stephen has a face and solid jawline that would seem to pit him as casting call for heroic leads. But instead Moyer lets his long, thin face reflect fear and uncertainty all through the clench of his jaw and delivers a haunted performance. Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film Review.
