The first misstep in Eckart's career in a long time. A movie that just didn't know what it wanted to be and it showed.
"I tear down the lies." Dr. Ember (Eckhart) has a special ability. He is able to enter the subconscious of those that are possessed and free them from their torment. He takes a job helping a young boy, but it proves to be more difficult that anything he's ever tried before. This is a movie that tried to be different. Most exorcism movies follow the same formula. This one combined the exorcist genre with the feel of Poltergeist. Unfortunately, the idea turned out better than the movie. Eckhart was good in this but it just lacked depth and emotion. It was watchable but I've can't remember the last time I saw a movie that stumbled to the end as badly as this one did. It seemed to veer off of the path it was on in the last half hour and left me confused and really took me out of the movie. Horror fans that aren't concerned with an actual story may like this one, I did not. Overall, the first misstep in Eckart's career in a long time. A movie that just didn't know what it wanted to be and it showed. I give this a low C-.
