Messy plot in a very stylish movie!
26 September 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie without any foreknowledge of what to expect. The only reason to take it was that the cover looked kinda stylish. I was mildly disappointed when it appeared to be a ghost story. Luckily, it wasn't just that. It's more of an experimental combination of genres and styles, mixed in a family history with a bloody secret.

Its storyline is pretty messy, and therefore I had to watch some of the parts again to fully comprehend it. But I still liked it for what it was: a wacky movie with a dark undertone, with talented directors as David Lynch and Terry Graham resonating through the deviant style. I liked the stylish and heartwarming sequences that touched me with the utter beauty of it. The side-characters are all charming on their own unique way. Not all of them had enough time to get enough depth - mainly due to the messiness of the script - but as a whole they do make this movie into something special.
