Really good
3 December 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

The actors give very good performances in a story that becomes more and more intriguing. What looks like a low budget picture shot on a short schedule is helped hugely by a good story, good cast and direction that lets you get involved in the story. While being a story about a city boy in a country situation, it develops into a ghost story, a romance and an action movie - as the city boy realizes he's in the middle of two families feuding. The nice twist is that they are ghosts fighting the same feud over and over at one particular phase of the moon. The love of the city boy for the country girl causing him to weigh in, kill the bad guy and break the pattern. And that's how he gets the girl. Very clever and satisfying.
