Avoid this movie at all costs
30 April 2009 | by nakagiSee all my reviews

This is one of the worst movies I've seen during the years. I cannot understand how it'd got such high ratings as it has now. I know that it might be very "cool" or "challenging" to mess around with camera or with video manipulating software when making titles as if for silent movie or making black and white from color movie, but why must that be called some kind of a movie? The plot is very weak and flat. About some kind of psychic H. Wingrave who tries to help people (in this "movie" - 2 people) to reach the other world. What this movie has? Nothing. During first half of the movie what happened? Nothing. Well, of course there are some serious insights that shows Henry is really smart guy. When he touches the lamp which is on and says "the light-bulb is hot" or when he touches under the table and says "here is no ectoplasm. Only ordinary dust". Well, of course, this makes the movie especially interesting, but that is not enough. (<-- read this with your sarcasm glasses on.) The so called music that tortures ears throughout the movie is horrible. It is the worst synthesizer ambient that can ever be created. Of course if you like to play around with your own cheap synthesizer that's OK, to create some freaky-spooky melodies. But that mustn't be the soundtrack of the movie. And it doesn't add anything to it. The acting is good? Well, as for the guys who are randomly picked from you circle of friends or so, it might be good, but for others it is good by no way. AVOID THIS MOVIE AT ALL COSTS. These 90 minutes will never get back to me.
