Visions counts with an interesting premise which challenges our expectations as we get to know more details, making the "vindictive ghost" cliché take a different and meticulously planned perspective which keeps a narrative consistency from the beginning to the end. On the negative side, the "meth- heads" sub-plot feels a bit unnecessary, and there are two shocks which feel a bit out of place in the context of the film. Going back to the pros, Isla Fisher brings a very good performance in the leading role; it was pleasant to finally see her in a role which takes advantage of her talent, which had been wasted in many films. Besides, Fisher is well complemented by the competent performances in supporting characters by Anson Mount, John de Lancie, Gillian Jacobs and Joanna Cassidy. And then, we have the twist in the end, which I found unexpected and quite well implemented, without making any traps or violating the internal logic of the screenplay. In conclusion, Visions is a very competent horror film, and I recommend it with confidence.
