It doesn't feel okay

Dr. Peter Bower (Adrien Brody) laments and blames himself over the death of his daughter Evie (Emma O'Farrell). He accepts a job in Sydney doing psychological assessment. He discovers his patients all have one thing in common, something which forces him to return home and remember an event from over 20 years ago.

Adrien Brody appears to have been typed cast into roles of a gloomy individual. He plays a pathetic individual not knowing what is happening to him, someone who sees ghosts. The film never develops into a real horror in spite of a few attempts to have a scary ghost scene. It is described as a mystery/thriller with the thriller side being light and half of the mystery revealed in the film trailer. The mystery peels itself back like an onion skin, never giving us enough clues to go beyond the next level.

While I enjoyed watching the film, it is not one I would watch again.

Spoilers follow ...

A majestic rainstorm illuminates the city backdrop throughout much of this Australian supernatural horror. A downpour can add so much atmosphere and unease to scenes if handled effectively - and here, Director (and Writer) Michael Petroni uses it very well indeed.

Sam Neill is an actor who has quietly built up a massive body of work. He is always solid, reliable and a powerful presence onscreen. Casually sophisticated and authoritative, he is typically fine here, playing Duncan Stewart, sceptical of the sinister possibilities that are unfolding. Neill's in good company - Adrien Brody is excellent as tortured Psychologist Peter Bower, who happens upon young Elizabeth, a patient who holds secrets of her own.

This unleashes a whole series of sightings, glimpses, jump scares and apparitions. And yet the overall effect is more of a slowly unfolding mystery than a 'straightforward' horror (if there is such a thing), elevated by the performances from the universally excellent cast and rich production values. The film doesn't quite live up to the moody success of its early scenes, but it keeps things simmering nicely.

The finale and climax either work or they don't, depending on your point of view. After such a carefully built-up - and occasionally ponderous - storyline, the last moments step up a couple of gears to provide what I thought was a pretty satisfying endgame, even if the 'twist' at the end is fairly routine.

Great movie!

This was a really interesting 90 minutes. A few plot problems but it grabbed my attention right away trying to figure out what was going on.

A little slow moving but fun, with a few scares and a lot of twists.

I don't really understand the bad reviews, and people trying to figure out and disagree with the motives of ghosts.

So, it's a mystery with a little bit of horror sprinkled in. I know some of the scares were old hat but I liked them anyway.

I don't see why everyone is raving about the acting of Adrien Brody. It wasn't that great I think any decent actor could have pulled it off. Didn't matter, it was the story that was good. I did really love the small part of Sam Neil though! Who throws in one of the first interesting twists.

Possible spoiler: everyone is comparing this to other movies, but the one I think it's most like is "Stir of Echoes" with Kevin Bacon.

Overall: if you don't like slow movers, you might not like it, but I thought it was great. Just hang in there for a while it gets better and better until the very end.
