Creepy emotions
2 January 2006 | by (The Netherlands (Europe)) – See all my reviews

I found it to be a very good, eerie, sometimes creepy, but certainly emotionally disturbing film.

Okay, if you expected to see flesh-ripping granny's who leave their denture sets in bloodied victims, you might get disappointed. This certainly is not a horror/action movie.

One of Ray Bradbury's MARTIAN CHRONICLES told about one of the first earth expeditions on Mars, where they found a small town just like home, in the USA. Its inhabitants were deceased family members, loved ones of our astronauts, who completely forgot their mission and went off to the people they once said goodbye to. Bradbury's story end rather horrible, but the emotional quality is certainly here. And people who have experienced that their grandparents died, or their parents, or a brother or a sister, your wife or husband, know how it is to fantasize that their loved ones come back. Well, LES REVENANTS plays it out that they do come back. And what next?
