Movie Reviews

Robert F. Powers | Quincy, Ma USA | 11/03/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The seamstress won't keep you on pins and needles, nor will it keep you in stitches. It just falls apart like a badly hemmed wedding dress. The script is as tangled as a spool of thread and the directors talent could not fill a thimble. The movie ends with a blatant murder by the heroine(Enough, Sleeping With the Enemy)-yeah, I've even seen that before. Don't buy, don't rent, don't even look at the dvd cover."

"Allie's father has disappeared on an island, and she wonders if his connection to an old crime is responsible. A woman was brutally killed by an angry crowd, and her murderous ghost haunts those responsible for her death. While Allie and her friends search for her father, people start dying in increasingly horrifying ways. The story was confusing and choppy. It relied on film editing too much to tell the story. It could of been a great horror movie but it was just too cliche. It's a cheezy formulaic studio horror movie, not even worth a rental.
A pretty good horror film

"First, there's nothing especially new here. The film has several of the hackneyed horror elements: a group of young people, an isolated setting, a killer from the past, and an evil from the past recurring in the present. In this sense, it is rather like a combination of I Know What You Did Last Summer and Ghost Story. Oh yeah, and there's a fair amount of the characters having sex before the killing begins. So the movie's not all that original.

Then again, there isn't much that is original in American horror these days. So, taking the derivativeness as a given, I find this movie fairly good. Allie (Kailin See, Snowglobe) goes in search of her father, who has disappeared, perhaps in connection with an old series of crimes. As it happens, an innocent person was tortured by a mob for those crimes, and her ghost is out for revenge. That's pretty much the plot. The rest is more or less by the numbers, albeit with a fairly good cast, nice effects, and a small twist at the end to keep the film from being a one-dimensional cliché. There are certainly better films out there, but there are also worse films.
