Quotes

[first lines]
Suzy: When people visit Sunshine Hills, they comment on the beauty, and the serenity. What they don't talk about, is the real theater resides in our minds. I recall the exact moment that our fear was born. It started when the teenage girls in our neighborhood were being abducted. And number 46 - the *bad* house, with an equally dubious history of rape, and murder - very few tenants.

Unsolved Mysteries
7 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A rather routine risqué thriller that is not quite thrilling and never really risqué. Although, not for lack of trying. We have a "girls gone missing" story with satanic, sadistic, serial killer overtones that are a found in this type of eerie wannabe, but nothing is really resolved (it makes you want to think).

But don't think too much because then it will all be for naught. There are dangling and unanswered major questions that we are to fill in and the ending is too clever for its own good, revealing that it is not that clever after all.

It is gripping enough but ultimately loses it and we are left with unsolved mysteries and dream like disconnects and the result is a good looking film with some artistic touches, but overall it remains something like an urban legend. There is something there, but just out of reality's reach.
