Seems very good and end up average
18 March 2014 | by (San Luis, Argentina) – See all my reviews

The premise of the movie starts good, this is a little ghost story, all the ingredients are there, the house, the tragedy and... the communication device, in this case, a EVP Box from the sixties.

The 2 leads are well developed and although they don't display good acting skills, it is clear that they have chemistry together and that alone make up for all the script plot holes.

The rest of the cast flows in development of their roles through the movie but in the last act they suddenly disappear from screen for no other reason than to focus on the two leads, this results in a big miss because we suddenly stop seeing them and that empty space turns the whole concept upside down, degrading what was well done in the first acts.

The movie tries to tie the story together from pieces to puzzle to big picture with the revelation right at the ending.

Hopefully it works, for the majority of the movie, sadly, the ending is incredible anti climatic.

I can see the director trying a different thing pretending to be original but the result came out incredible wrong, not only ruins the movie, it doesn't explain in any meaningful way anything except a few loose ends..

In fact the final declarations sounds more like "yes we didn't knew what to do anymore so we finish the movie like this.. you like it?"

Well, NO, did I spent 2 hours of my life for this???, I've should had known better.

This is clearly goes into the director and writers fault. There are movies that get saved by the ending and left the viewers at least with a satisfactory conclusion, then there are movies that are dull through and through, but the worst of their kind are movies like this one, with an nice premise, good development and stupid ending, that is unforgivable because it gives you a weird feeling of bad taste on your mouth, a feeling of being cheated.

Do not waste your time, it's really not worth it as there are much better movies out there.
