What, no love for this movie? Do yourselves a favor and check this film out. First, don't confuse this with some SyFy channel cheapie, or some haunted ship knock-off either. And for god's sake, don't read up on it...best to go into this one cold. Trust me on that.
Great performance from Melissa George (DARK CITY, MULHOLLAND FALLS, AMITYVILLE HORROR, IN TREATMENT) and a plot that just can't be given away. George's performance is the best thing I've ever seen this actress do and she never hits a false note. (And believe me, it's far from a one-note role.) If you like movies with some refreshing intelligence and mind games, don't miss this one. It's a movie that, when it ends, you won't be able to resist going back to the beginning. Sure there are a few flaws, primarily in a couple CG shots, but not in the acting, writing, or directing. A gem!
Unfortunately, this film screams for a director's commentary but there is none (nor any real extras to speak of, aside from some brief interview clips). But if the movie is what is important, this one deserves your time. I've enjoyed director Christopher Smith's previous work, but this one is his best so far. Might become my first BD purchase of 2010. (Yes, I'm that picky!)
