Didn't quite get this one. It started out real good and then crashed and burned. It was trying to be something it is not and the characters other than the leading part were not convincing or captivating in any way. Like a weak effort to imitate masterpieces like the sixth sense. Epic fail.

Honestly i only bought the movie cause i'm a big fan of Across the Universe and Jim Sturgess. Think he's real believable in all his roles. This is no exception. He takes on this role with great charisma and innocence throughout the first 75% of the movie. Then goes from one extreme to another in a matter of a handshake (spoiler).

Unpredictability isn't this horror film's strength, but it's stylishly crafted and excellently acted, and it boasts an abundance of heart in every sense of the word. Full Review

We know how these bargains turn out, so all we're left to do is watch pretentious exchanges about grief pile up, laugh at the way the movie exploits its Indian-girl-as-innocence-personified notion and wish that Eddie Marsan's giddy cameo as Hell's personal weapons dealer were much, much longer.

Forget "Donnie Darko": This genuinely haunting and moving horror-drama, which shares ideas and themes with that 2001 cult favorite, is far better. Full Review

This compelling psychological horror-thriller contains a tremendous amount of heart. That would be largely thanks to a moving and deeply sensitive lead performance by Jim Sturgess Full Review
There's more mood than matter here, but suspenseful atmospherics effectively distract from minor plot holes. Full Review
