This is a Mystery Thriller- for a horror flick it lacks boldness. The supernatural theme is supposed to be the ingredient holding the flick together but it feels like someone got embarrassed of the whole horror-thing and as a displacement activity started making a relationship drama and filming the main actress wearing vast arrays of hot pants, short skirts and negligees. This movie is too slow in the build-up, showing too much unnecessary detail, delivering shock moments too scarcely (although the storyline would have left ample room for them) to play the horror card wholeheartedly. Not a bad thing in itself.. problem is it can't decide what else it wants to be. At one point you may think it's a serial killer story - but then again the phenomenon of negligence right after introduction: this part is so uncared for that it can hardly generate impact. On the other hand though, the movie spends veeeery long time on depicting the relationship that evolves between the main character and a young divorcée - and breaks the storyline off for inexplicable reasons. So, having a secondary ghost story, a pointless relationship drama and an undernourished serial killer plot, the problem is that even after having finished watching the movie, I am still not clear about its intention - it lacks the main theme! The production value is good though and the result is still a (surprisingly) coherent movie.. Honoring the eagerness and workmanship I give it 5 stars.
