It’s time now for a supernatural thriller starring Nicolas Cage. I’m referring to Between Worlds (2018) from director Maria Pulera. It didn’t receive a whole lot of praise from the critics but when has that ever stopped us from making up our own minds. In any case I’ll give you my thoughts on the film, so without further ado here’s my Between Worlds blu-ray review.
- Between Worlds (2018) – German Import
- Genre: Supernatural Thriller
- Directed by Maria Pulera
- UK Rating N/A
- Discs: 1
- Blu-ray Released: N/A
Trucker Joe (Nicolas Cage) comes to the aid of woman in a truck stop toilet. Julie is being strangled be a man when Joe intervenes. However far from being attacked Julie is in fact attempting to cross between worlds in order to save her daughter Billie whom has suffered serious injury following a motorbike crash. What will Joe make of Julie’s ability to cross between worlds?
Style / Direction
The film is directed by Maria Pulera whilst Thomas Hencz is responsible for the cinematography. Overall I’d say the move is compently made with no major production issues noted.
Music / Audio Effects
The music is provided by Jason Solowsky.
Acting / Characters
Nicolas Cage plays Joe a truck driver that has lost his wife and daughter. Furthermore he is debt with his truck at risk of being repossessed. Upon meeting Julie, played by Franka Potente he finds new hope and new possibilities. Cage is very good at these types of roles and it’s a part that also sees him go a little bit wild too.
Franka Potente as Julie is also very good whilst Penelope Mitchell as Billie the daughter is just plain unnerving.
- Nicolas Cage as Joe
- Franka Potente as Julie
- Penelope Mitchell as Billie
- Garrett Clayton as Mike
- Lydia Hearst as Mary
- David Lee Smith as Kirby
Conclusion: Between Worlds (2018) Film Review
Overall I found Between Worlds to be an enjoyable watch. As long as you don’t take it too seriously or expect a masterpiece I think most will get something from this supernatural thriller.
If you enjoyed my Between Worlds blu-ray review so far you may want to check out the following films:

Conclusion: Between Worlds Blu-ray Review
Between Worlds has not had a UK blu-ray release to date meaning the version I’m reviewing here is the German one. The UK has only been given a DVD release by Thunderbird Releasing which is extremely disappointing. As you might expect the picture quality on the German blu-ray is fantastic being from 2018.
On to my movie rating for Between Worlds (2018)
- Movie Rating: WORTH A LOOK
- Blu-ray Picture: PERFECT
- Extras: BASIC
