And Jess unknowingly holds the key to end the terror.Written by
The film makes many oblique references to The Shining (1980). The number "237" crops up, which was the same number of the spooky hotel room Danny was forbidden to go into; there are also words written on a mirror, a ballroom and an axe. See more »

She looks great despite having only the one t-shirt and shorts throughout
I preferred the beginning and end of this to the rather protracted and repetitive main body. The opening credits have real style and prompt thought of David Lynch as we espy from unusual angles the likes of a revolving garden sprinkler, a lazily pushed lawnmower, an unclean pond and a washing line. At the same time the enigmatic ending promises to make sense of what we have seen with a mix of rescue and disaster on the street. In between a rather protracted tale is told upon some ghost ship where shipwreck survivors come and go and come again. Its not terrible but I wouldn't want to watch it again, except for the fact that leading actress Melissa George works her socks off almost single-handed in an attempt to keep this afloat. She looks great despite having only the one t-shirt and shorts throughout and it is a shame she gets little support from the others.
