Extra Ordinary (2019) is one of those films which is like a breath of fresh air into the saturated horror panorama. Every year we get on our screens planty of movies that go handing hands with gory or supernatural subjects together with comedy. Although sometimes, most of the times I’m afraid, those jokes are used and seen a million times. But Extra Ordinary (2019) does it in a fresh and totally likable style. Let’s get deeper in it.
In Extra Ordinary (2019), Rose is a sweet and lonely driving instructor in rural Ireland, who is gifted with supernatural abilities. Rose has a love/hate relationship with her ‘talents’ and tries to ignore the constant spirit related requests from locals, like to exorcise possessed rubbish bins or haunted gravel. But then, Christian Winter, a washed up, one-hit-wonder rock star, has made a pact with the devil for a return to greatness. He puts a spell on a local teenager making her levitate. Her terrified father, Martin Martin, asks Rose to help save his daughter. Rose has to overcome the fear of her supernatural gift and work with Martin to save the girl, get the guy and be home in time for a light snack… maybe a yogurt or something… – Plot taken from IMDB.com.
