Don't Care
30 April 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

When the summary of someone's 10/10 review is "I love this movie", it's pretty safe bet that not only have they *not* written a review but an opinion but also that the said rating is probably a major overstatement. And at least in the case of this excuse for a TV movie, even the average at the time of writing, 5.6/10, is an overstatement.

There seems to be no info on the length of the movie, but I can assure it is *too* long. 110 minutes including commercials was what was allotted for its "around midnight" time-slot here - presumably not because it is too scary for kids but because it is likely to put the viewer into sleep. For a thriller, this is seriously lacking in thrills and the makers don't seem to have the slightest idea of how to create a ghost story. There isn't a mood to speak of - the scenes seem like they are all first takes, the angles and the music couldn't be more bland and the editing is from the bottom of TV movie barrel - slow and lazy.

If, for some bizarre reason, you end up watching this movie - maybe because there really is nothing else on, or you want to calibrate your rating criteria, or perhaps are feeling masochistic, do have a game: count every movie cliché you recognize. The script is so full of recycled plot elements that you are likely to give up. The whole thing is a 3/10 example of pointlessness likely to just leave you feeling indifferent.
