Unusual and atmospheric but not a great deal happens
15 August 2009 | by StradaleSee all my reviews

This isn't really the 'horror' film the TV Guides promise but it's a half decent thriller with some moments of suspense. If you plan on watching it for blood'n'guts you'll be disappointed.

It's filmed in Morocco, well acted and does a decent job of capturing the atmosphere; it has the creepy feel from the start of the original Omen.

By halfway you'll forgive the slow pace because the film feels like it's revving up to some serious scares. Although there are a few tense moments, it never quite gets there and you're left feeling a bit shortchanged.

Judged against most of the trash filling satellite schedules 'The Passage' is a worth watching (6+ stars if you have visited Morocco) but I wouldn't recommend it on rental.
