Some strange scenes, one unforgettable, transcendent scene...
23 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like ghost stories, the older and closer to the abyss I get, and there is one scene in this film that won the day for me. Hinds' character awakes one morning, to find his dead wife sitting on the bed, her hair gone to chemo, looking at him with darkened eyes. He does a double take, and she is still there, her lustrous, long, brown hair shining, and she looking well, a shadow of sad on her face. He is stunned, and cannot move as she gets up, sits down beside him on the bed and hugs him warmly for at least a minute...he weeps openly, and she gets up and drifts away. I cannot embellish that marvelous scene any more....

The detractions were the scenes of slasher gore as Hind's character saw visions of his wife's sick father, dead and rotting and grabbing for him....don't quite understand why those were in there, but this was a good film
