"How can you save yourself if you're already dead?"

A discontented schoolteacher (Ricci) wakes up immobile following a serious car accident, to be told by the solemn undertaker who is preparing her body (Neeson) that she is dead and is being helped to cross over to the afterlife, but her grieving boyfriend (Long) will not accept her death and confronts the mortician.

Beautifully shot supernatural horror, with a striking prominence of the colour red (Ricci spends much of the movie in just a red slip, or naked), with Neeson bringing an ethereal gravitas to his role of the respectable and (apparently) kindly funeral director - or is he a serial killer?

Subtle clues and an ambiguous ending enhance the mystery.

Blu-ray Extras: Commentary, Featurette, Trailer. *** (6/10)

Good tension, good atmosphere, good Liam Neeson, but that's all.

This movie is a bit difficult to describe, in that we never completely realize everything. The plot consists of this: after a serious car accident, a young teacher wakes up in a morgue and is informed that she has died. The rest of the film is based on doubts as to whether she's really dead, in her conflicted relationship with her mother, and in her ill-fated romance with her boyfriend. Another thing that hangs in the air but never reveals itself is the real nature of the owner of the mortuary, who may be a man with a gift to speak to the dead or a cold killer. In short, there is a lot here but nothing actually reveals itself, leaving the film in total doubt about most of what we have seen. It's a lukewarm movie, without power or impact. The atmosphere and tension are pleasant, but they never materialize into something. Christina Ricci moans too much and has a voice too soft which makes her a bit annoying. Honestly, she seems horny all the time, and the fact that she appears almost naked in most of the film does not help to undo that impression. Liam Neeson is the best actor here, with a deep, psychologically rich, pleasing and sinister interpretation. Justin Long is fine, but he's too paranoid and superficial.

One of the best films written

This is probably one of the most well written films i have ever seen. The writers of the film wrote it in two different perspectives.The film was written as if she was dead and at the same time as if she was alive. If two people were to argue over if she was dead or alive during the film they both would be completely right!The film follows a young lady who is depressed and is not appreciative of her life. She gets into an accident and is sent to a mortician who has the gift of speaking to the dead.The question that still lingers is whether or not he buried her alive or was she truly dead to begin with.I had to rematch the film two more times after the first watch and i was still unable to determine if she was dead or alive due to the brilliant writing of the film.
