A mildly creepy piece, which is let down by its conclusion.
7 December 2005 | by (the Mad Hatter's tea party.) – See all my reviews

A police detective reopens a case about the mysterious disappearance of an important businessman and he finds out there's more to this bizarre case than he first thought. Where he discovers the previous cop that was on this case is in a mental hospital, he himself is starting to get manipulated and starts seeing people in reflections that aren't really there. Is it another dimension where the strange beings roam and what does all this got to do with his childhood.

This pretty much could've been a pearler of a film, but, yep but it ended up being tiredly underwhelming. This is because the whole mystery of this case slowly fades into tedium after the great first hour and the ending just lacked creditability. Although, that's just me. I thought is just copped out and took a sudden turn that didn't fit in the overall picture. Some might say it was a perfect way to end it, but that's my thought. I'll admit the film doesn't break any new ground, but it's slickly produced, with its incredibly well done direction and disquieting locations. The air is thick of atmosphere, a very unsettling awe that builds from the gloomy and cold settings. That of the cinematography, which covered these settings was truly striking by making you feel as if you were right there. While, the faint hearted score that prominently sinks into the film, just eats away at you. It puts you into a daze of discomfort and totally unhinges you. The story is what kinda derailed it for me. The supernatural touch is constructed into it beautifully, by painting an uncertain picture that seems to haunt you by mixing reality with the spirit world and implying we're being watched all the time. Leaving the door open for different interpretations. The actual topic of people disappearing without a trace and that's means everything they left behind still in the same spot is indeed scary and it does chill you to the bone. It's driven by its mysterious plot and the confronting script that pulls you along for the ride. Although, the more I learned about what was happening, the less I seemed to actually care. It benefit from not having any jump scares, but still it was predictable to know if something was going to happen and after the tight first half it just dwindle in an unconvincing fashion throughout the final scenes. The performances were good and Carmelo Gomez as the police inspector conveys a figure that you care for and truly believe with the emotions he goes through. He is one of the things that keep you wrapped in the dim story.

I'm glad I took the chance on watching it, but I'll say seek out "The Nameless" instead, which is more a tailor made mystery that's truly disturbing. Overall, an okay horror mystery that has some class and pours in some interesting ideas into this chilling subject.
