Passable Suspense Flick
10 August 2002 | by (Niagara Region, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

The title of this movie is a bit of a misnomer. This isn't really about a haunting, at least not as I understand the word. It is, however, a passable suspense flick about a young girl (Lisa, well played by young Aemelia Robinson) who receives mysterious visions about the murder of a young child, and whose visions set in motion a search for the killer, who may also be responsible for other deaths and who may now need to kill Lisa to avoid being caught.

The identity of the killer is well kept as an open question for most of the movie. You eventually reach the point at which you can narrow it down to two suspects, but you aren't really sure who it is until it's revealed.

Cheryl Ladd put on a decent enough performance as Lisa's mom, Ellen, who shares her daughter's psychic-like powers. Criticisms? Well, the movie caricatures both TV reporters and the Catholic Church a little bit. Even given the aggressiveness of the media, I don't think they'd film a private conversation between a mother and her young daughter and play the tape on television, and I honestly don't believe that a Catholic priest (Father Eakin, played by Don Allison) would intrude on a family with no connection to his church and who are not even Catholic.

As I said to begin, this is passable - nothing more, really.

5/10
