Overloaded with wisecracks.
23 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

If you've ever wondered what a horror film written by a Woody Allen wannabe would come out like, then check this one out. It's imaginatively directed, has a typical but enjoyable "haunted place" premise, solid makeup effects....it's an all-around good job, but with one major flaw: the dialogue is overloaded with cheeky wisecracks and witticisms (sample: "You want scary? Go shopping with my ex-wife") that sometimes hit the mark, but are too often delivered at the most inappropriate moments (even while the hero is battling an evil ghost!). (**)
