Beautiful, , moody, and creepy
20 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've never seen a "ghost story" use a device such as this. I won't tell you what it is, but let you see for yourself. At first I thought it was kind of laughable, but during the course of the movie it got creepier and creepier for me.

Filmed in Oregon, the beautiful cinematography seems to be another character in the film as is the haunting film score that sets the mood right from the titles. The film's opening shots reveal a remote cabin on an island lake in the woods, and there's something ominous in the stillness of these scenes and what they reveal.

Mira Sorvino plays a woman who retreats to this, her family's cabin, for some serious alone time to write and reflect. But, even before her fiancé joins her there, she's not really alone, and falls under the spell of the cabin. Traumatic memories from the past overcome her (with a little supernatural assistance) and threaten to destroy her life and future happiness. But, supernatural help from another source puts things right for her . . . at least for now.

Something about this film reminded me of Passengers (which I really liked) although there's no similarity at all in the story lines. Maybe it's just the dreamy way the film unfolds as well as its supernatural elements. Also, both films effectively use their locations to set the tone for their stories.
