Storyline

After a car accident, Lizzie lies dead on the roadside - slowly she is taken into the light - but is pulled back to earth when she is revived by the doctors. Lizzie feels sure that during the 184 seconds that she lay dead, something latched on to her and came back into her world. The nightmares and visions that follow only crystallize her belief that she should have died in the crash... Then the disturbances start, at first merely tappings and bad smells - but soon the activity escalates. Lizzie seems to be the focus, but according to others, she's just playing games for attention. Only when Kate, her mother, is confronted with inexplicable events does she face the possibility that they may be the victims of a poltergeist infestation. Written by Anonymous

Impressively ambiguous
6 April 1999 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Saw this at the Edinburgh Film Festival last year, and enjoyed it a great deal. The 'ghost' element was kept off camera which made the whole story very ambiguous - concentrating more on grief and social conditions than special effects. The acting was terrific (even Jason Connery) and the script literate and well paced. The film was interesting the way it came up with dozens of "explanations" for the events - some supernatural, some scientific - before underlining that the reasons behind such things aren't so important as the psychological effects on the protagonists. I hope it gets a wider distribution soon, as it deserves to be seen by a larger audience. Very impressive - considering its budget, doubly so.
