I really enjoyed this film. I found the lugubrious pacing and slow menacing atmosphere quite interesting and it drew me in but then I have strange tastes. Reminds me of "Misery" but with a totally different angle.
What surprised me even more is that I always thought Kate Bosworth was a terrible actress and I have now changed my opinion somewhat as she was really very good in this role.
The twist in the tale was totally unexpected and made the film even more interesting. I guess when the story draws you in and you become immersed you are less likely to try and work things out and criticise but just let the story take you to the endpoint.
I think I must be the only person in the reviews section that has given this a good review and I don't know why as the film was really rather good, apart from some plot holes; like who was the previous husband in the cupboard and why did the new guy not know about it or maybe he did as he had lost his memory and went along with it all because he did in fact love the main protagonist.
