Storyline

Police detective Christopher Shay was shot during the Penny Romig murder investigation years ago. His then partner, Matt Carson, ends up confessing he was blackmailed with his own alcohol abuse by plausibly dirty police captain Murphy, after Chris's young daughter Sara convinces her mother Kim she somehow incarnates Peggy's memory. The only hope to get to the crucial autopsy reports is coroner Dr. Marquette's office. An elaborate cover-up proves dangerous for all. Written by KGF Vissers

Worth Watching
11 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A supernatural who-dun-it.

I enjoyed the film and felt that the acting and characters were good.

The story had me guessing as to the outcome. It is a good, basic thriller with no great plot holes.

Some of the red herrings are a bit contrived.

Overall it's worth watching. I liked the way the the hunt was conducted using a combination of mobile phones and clairvoyance.

There are a couple of gruesome bits - not too bad.

If you can accept that using clairvoyance to solve a mystery is not cheating then it's a simple enjoyable film.
