Movie Reviews

Michael Butts | Martinsburg, WV USA | 08/02/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Don't let the cover art fool you...this is NOT a horror movie, it borders on being a HORRIBLE movie instead. A psychological drama is more like it, with a dark look at post partem depression, guilt, and denial. Lukas Haas plays a young father who moves his wife and infant son to a rural house to help her get over her PPD. His only neighbor is a ditzy woman who isnt the least bit interested in being neighborly, but has a dark secret of her own.
While the ingredients could have made for a compelling movie, Tim Browns direction is so lethargic nothing ever really gels or creates true terror. Most of the movie is spent in checking to see if the baby is alive or not crying. Haas is weak in a difficult role while Emily Hampshire's performance as the wife is monotonous; Amanda Smith as the strange neighbor gives an adequate performance. Not really suspenseful and mostly just dull and tedious."

"...If you have to think through a movie. This is actually a pretty good ghost story. True, this couple keeps checking the baby, but that's not all there is to it. There is a reason for this. This is one of those movies that gradually comes together and forms an interesting story. The ending has impact even though presented in a subtle way, and makes you think back to things throughout the movie and you just say something like, "Oh wow, I see". It does take a bit for the story to get going, so you have to be patient and just pay attention. All that said, the acting and directing is way above average. If you are just looking for blood and gore, maniacs wielding knives or chainsaws, people abducted and tied up, nudity, or any of that heavy action horror stuff, you won't find it here."

"I just don't understand why they continue over and over again taking a really good storyline and turning it into total trash."
Do you like the name 'Julie?'

"The title of my review comes from what seems about the only dialogue in this movie which is the husband constantly, irritatingly calling his wife's name, which is, of course, Julie. I should have heeded the opinions of the other 2 reviewers, but had already rented the movie so decided to give it a chance. I wasted almost 2 hours of my life here. Except for a few, (VERY FEW), creepy moments, this was one of the slowest, dullest movies I've seen. Don't waste your time."
