Movie Reviews

I liked it
traderje | Through the Window | 03/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Once again Christopher Walken is scarier than the monster. I wish I could post some of the one liners about his character, but it would spoil it when you watch. The dual role woman is gorgeous. The male lead looks a little like a younger Walken, I wonder if that was intentional. For those other posters who didn't get it, the Granny significance is obvious if you think about it. The details were not specified, but what's wrong with that? The soundtrack was pretty cool, too. Sounds a little like Dido. I only saw VHS version, so I couldn't read the soundtrack credits... anyone who sees DVD version should post some of the music credits."
Soundtrack Info

"For anyone wondering about the origins of the first track of
this film, it's a song titled "Rockets" by Cat Power. I've
always loved this song and was quite surprised to hear it in
a film. This movie surprised me quite a bit. Much better than
I expected, especially considering the horrible DVD cover that
the studio gave it."
Horror,Romance and nice soundtrack.

"Released on video in Brazil a month ago,this film mixes horror and romance in a cool way. Walken's character,uncle Bill,gets so fascinated by the female druid mummy and her story through the centuries and falls in love with her in hope she'll suddenly comes back to life to save him from boredom.But her story was so sad although intense that might make you think if it's worthy to leave all plans and purposes behind for a great passion. Yes,there is also blood in some scenes,but I think this a very nice movie and somehow reflective. Walken's performance is as good as ever and the other actors are also alright.The soundtrack is nice,mixing indie guitar and techno bands plus good incidental tunes. Yes,do see this film."
Fantastic sound engineering

"It was many months ago that I watched this film on DVD. I wish to add something that no other reviewer has given emphasis to; The film has the most awesome sound track I have ever heard. I have a very good home theater audio set up (of modest cost). The audio track completely surprised me with the dynamic range and eerie sounds. If you think you have a good wide-ranging sound system, you will want to watch this film. The film is okay even if your sound system is lacking. Sound effect 5 stars. Visual imagery 4 stars. Story 3 stars."
