In some way awesome!
19 July 2010 | by urx-795-910129See all my reviews

At the beginning i was skeptical about this spirit stuff. After introduced Laura character i was amazed. I must admit Laura Spencer played good role and i really had strange feelings like Sam character could feel. If i would be in this situation in real life, it would make me crazy in good way:) It is always important to have some kind of feeling from movie and it did exactly that! Even the concept itself was a bit silly, the human part was played well. Also there were good technical details. How people handled things, it felt very realistic. One thing i didn't like was the end part, it was too unrealistic for me and for a moment i lost feeling being in movie. After all it is possible that i will watch this movie again later just to get this strange feeling again.
