Confused mish-mash
2 December 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Having watched this film and wasted a couple of hours that could have been better spent, I searched online for reviews to see what other viewers made of it. To say I am finding it hard to believe the evidence of my own eyes is an understatement. So many reviewers have admitted to being confused, to feeling there was something missing, to having been given something to "think" about (yes, like what was this complete tosh supposed to be about?) but still ended up praising it, that I had to register and write a review of my own.

It seems that many people are very easily pleased. It seems that the great interest currently shown in paranormal and esoteric subjects means that chancers can produce a patchwork of psychological gibberish, give it a moody, rainy feel full of pregnant pauses, significant glances and enigmatic comments (except that none of it added up) where nobody behaved in a remotely normal human way, but all of this was supposed to (and apparently did) impress itself on the minds of so many reviewers, even though a number of them admit to being unsure of what any of it actually meant.

The X Files have been mentioned once or twice, and this is a good analogy. That was another example of throwing together a random set of unlikely happenings, irritating anyone trying to actually make sense of it, and at the end have someone say, "So what did it mean? Maybe we'll never know ..." (or words to that effect). Well my words would be What A Cop-Out! Throwing together a bit of this, a bit of that, cups hitting the ceiling, rooms shaking, yada yada yada - does NOT constitute a plot, or even a point. Anyone satisfied with rubbish like this needs their own heads tested. Even Christopher Lloyd mumbled his way through it (no doubt due to extreme embarrassment and in the hope none of us would be able to understand what he was saying). Avoid this film like the plague unless you only have two brain cells that will overload if faced with intelligent entertainment. Do yourselves a favour, and watch the genuinely creepy and disturbing Carnival of Souls (1962) instead.
