I thought this would be an intelligent thriller
25 July 2006 | by LCShackleySee all my reviews

I don't usually watch horror movies, but this one had such a good look to it that I thought it might turn out to be a "thinking person's" movie like THE HAUNTING or THE UNINVITED. As it went along, I started thinking more of TURN OF THE SCREW, because there were implications that the visions Anna was having were due to her unexplained previous abuse and her mysterious pregnancy...and she was making others believe in the visions (like the nanny in TURN OF THE SCREW). But how does that account for the boy's death at the beginning? The last third of the movie is a complete letdown because of the introduction of fantasy elements beyond the limits of the movie up to that point. (The elevator is the first clue that we're going off track.) I can't believe how many IMDb posters actually seem to believe that the subterranean scenes are somehow "real." There is no evidence that anything sinister was ever done to the children who came to Saint-Ange during WWII. There are SO many interesting ways this movie could have played out...too bad they chose a dud ending. However, I have to say that Joseph LoDuca (Xena) did a marvelous score, which has to sustain a huge amount of silent action. This is definitely a movie to watch with a fast forward button.
