Not bad, but nothing special either
23 January 2005 | by IceaFrostSee all my reviews

I went to see this movie mainly because my father paid. I haven't read the book, so I didn't know the plot line before seeing it.

The beginning creates interest right away and after that it just rolls on. In into the story comes all the characters and the subplot (Linda's relation to her father) is quite cliché, but it becomes apparent that it is needed to help the story.

The story has a lot of loose ends, and a while in I didn't understand how some parts were connected to the others. In the end, most of these ends are tied together, but some are still strange and never gets a real explanation. Most of the parts that were meant to be scary, or at least raise the pulse of the audience wasn't that scary, as most things were quite predictable.

Anyway, I enjoyed this, they managed to tie most of the loose ends together, and it was a quite interesting story, but nothing I'd pay to see at the cinema.

5/10
