Excellent Movie... has a "Sixth Sense" feel to it
24 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I initially got this movie not really expecting that great of a film; like most of you who've seen it I found it at at a video store. This movie isn't like a traditional horror movie; it doesn't rely on much blood and guts to build suspense. The whole movie is about a single man, and everything that happens to him after he goes in to what appears to be a routine operation. The movie itself is VERY slow, so for some people who haven't got the patience to watch the movie until its ending, and are expecting the more traditional hack and slash out of this horror movie, may be disappointed.

The movie is full of metaphor, which is one of the things that I *really* liked about it. Nearly everything that happens is symbolic to the main character on at least one level. This will seem a bit much, but that's why I recommend you wait till the end of the movie to judge it.

The best way I'd sum this movie up is: A common man, facing very horrible situations; by the end of the movie nearly all of his fears will be revealed... and in the end he must make the ultimate choice. Watch this movie, and keep in mind it moves slowly for a reason.
