Did You Know?


Heather Graham reprising her role once again as a diner waitress in a logger town where a young girl was mysteriously murdered is clearly Alexandre Aja paying homage to Twin Peaks. Only she was 20 years old the first time. See more »


The character Lee had two fingers on his right hand blown off by a cherry bomb in a childhood accident, as shown in the film. In the scene where Ig confronts Lee and finds that he is wearing Merrin's necklace, it can be seen that Lee is not missing any fingers on either hand. See more »


Ig Perrish: Punishing Terry was the hardest thing I've ever done, but forcing him to face his demon was the only way I could help him.

Underwhelming, but not a total loss.
31 December 2014 | by gojisebSee all my reviews

I was excited for this flick. I thought it looked like it could be a fun, crazy supernatural whodunnit kind of story. So, I went in with some fairly high hopes. Did the film live up to them? Well...not exactly.

It's well acted (Radcliffe gives a solid performance when he's actually focusing on acting and not on his accent) and incredibly well shot. I could not get over how gorgeous some of the cinematography is. However, there are a few things that bog it down considerably for me. The voice-over narration feels very forced in there and I thought that some of the exposition dialogue really killed lots of the more dramatic moments. It also suffers from very uneven pacing and the story flows is too jumbled at times.

Overall, I recommend it. It's a fine flick that you won't regret watching at least once, but it ultimately didn't do much for me.
