This was the worst movie I have ever seen. It seemed to have generally no plot other than maybe he's crazy or maybe it's the shrink. And it never really gets resolved... you're just left wondering and trying to figure out what was the point and why you just wasted 70 minutes of your time on it. Even if you are watching this simply because it has Robert Pattinson in it, it is not worth it. Even he offers no redemption for this movie.

A descent into madness

"A tour de force for Pattinson as he takes center-stage in a film that has him playing a very different role that he did in Twilight for sure. A seriously wounded airman, Jugg (Pattinson) is sent to recuperate at a secluded mansion and instead finds himself a victim... a victim of nightmares and visions. The complex conspiracy that comes to light is fueled by those around him, those he ought to trust.
Pattinson fans will thoroughly enjoy this film. Based on the novel 'The Haunting of Toby Jugg", the BBC production is well crafted and, like classic horror films, shows a slow descent into madness for the lead character. If you're a fan of Pattinson, this is a must see as he IS this film from start to finish!
Pattinson's finest show yet.

"this is probably rpattz's finest performance i've seen yet. he so emboded the character of toby jugg perfectly. i thought his acting was superb.
if you've never watched a pattinson movie and want to, start with this one. it is much better than twilight (though i do love twilight!) and will most likely be a good first taste of him. and his british accent is the bomb! my only issue is the rating. in my opinion it is a pg-13 rating and not R. i have seen worse movies with a lower rating than R. give this movie a chance! i loved it!"

"I'm sure that most of the renewed interest in this film is because it stars Robert Pattinson. If that's your motivation you won't be disappointed with his performance specifically. He was brooding, handsome, and believable in the title role.
That being said, this movie doesn't have a lot to offer otherwise. At the end of the movie I felt like I had missed something important. Maybe I'd have to read the book to fully understand what was going on, but this movie didn't give me a lot of incentive to want to do that either. Throughout the entire story it was hard to see the motivation behind the characters actions. I don't believe it was that the actors failed to effectively portray the story, I think that the script (or maybe the book itself?) was fundamentally flawed somehow. There just wasn't enough backstory to understand how the characters became the way they are emotionally. Additionally, the movie did a very poor job explaining how the characters' relationships with each other came to be, instead expecting the audience to just accept those relationships as a given. Without the proper development between the characters, it was very hard to care about what happened to them.
The music was also terrible. It had that cheesy, old, horror movie vibe and didn't add to the movie overall.
