The premise of this movie is pretty standard, the typical case of missing children and the psychic that see things and want to help the current cop in the case.
At the same time, it is pretty standard that the cop has a relation to the missing child case since he couldn't resolve his a long time ago. I am not stating something very crucial, since the movie is pretty obvious from start to end.
I am sorry to say, but, timing is not handled OK in this movie which leads us viewers to guess the ending miles ahead of it's time. If you're smart, you will find out pretty much everything in the middle of the movie, which is not a good sign for a creepy ghost/suspense/thriller.
Musician tried his best with the music based on the pretty linear script, visuals on this movie on the other hand are not good, there is no suspense whatsoever and even on the creepy parts, we found out that nothing is really happening on screen, we just know it "should" be a creepy part by the music, it's like the director didn't follow the musician's enthusiasm and left there all by himself!
Also, the movie doesn't take the topic very seriously, psychic powers i mean, since it is poorly handled and the creepy parts feels so rushed that just don't work on screen.
John Voight is the only actor who takes this movie seriously, the rest, sorry but they don't do a good job, not credible at least.
Don't get me wrong, this is not a horrible movie, it doesn't have inappropriate parts, it doesn't have violence nor bad language at all, it's very respectful of the viewer but, it just end up not being enough to save it from it's own demise.
A creepy movie that doesn't scare is not a good movie.
Almost fair movie, see it on cable if you don't have anything else to see, but don't have high expectations on it.
