Poor Julian Sands!
28 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't want to include a spoiler, so it is difficult to tell you how absolutely awful this movie is. I was looking forward to seeing more of Julian Sands. Julianne Nicholson's character, appearance, and performance is horrible. Max Beesley was very interesting to watch, and I wish his character had been better developed and allowed more on-screen time. Long after the movie ended, I was still trying to figure it out, and eventually some of the "clues" sunk in. It really was a convoluted mess. As a married couple, Nicholson's and Sands' characters were completely unbelievable and overly gullible. Even the setting was never clearly explored. Where exactly was this movie supposed to take place? It was implied that it was an extremely popular seaside resort, but we rarely saw any other vacationers. The publicity for the film leads you to believe it will be some kind of very sexy "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf", but the entire premise and plot fall flat. There's some "woo-woo" stuff going on too, which might be supernatural or some cerebral malfunction. I'd say stay away from this movie.
