Good Performances helps ease the Flaws.
6 July 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Pyschotrist David Callaway (Two-Time Oscar Winner:Robert De Niro) seen the body of his dead wife (Amy Irving) committed suicide. When his only daughter (Dakota Fanning) is traumatized by her mother death. David and His daughter move to the country to start a new life. When his daughter is creating a new imaginary friend, the father starts to worry and strange things are starting to happen to him and especially his daughter.

Directed by John Polson (Swinfan) made a good thriller but the only problem in this film. It doesn't know when to quit and it's ends with an unsatisfying conclusion. De Niro and Fanning are extraordinary good in this film. The film's supporting cast are:Elizabeth Shue, Famke Janssen, Dylan Baker, Melissa Leo and Robert John Burke. This was a Box Office Hit. This should be a larger successful on DVD.

DVD has an sharp Pan & Scan transfer with an good-Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound (also in DTS 5.1 Sound). DVD has an commentary track by the filmmakers, deleted scenes, 4 alternative endings and more. This thriller could be a cult favorite. It is nicely done film. Super 35. (*** ½/*****).
