    This is so sweet and heartbreaking. I love that it's not predictable. There's room for so much improvement but I digg it. Give it a shot and be open minded.

    Poor British horror which promises much but never develops into anything more than a mixed up gore fest who's plot has many branches but never ties up any of them into a coherent storyline leading to an experience which leaves you feeling cheated.

    With erratic success, Heartless tries a number of different veins-urban fairy tale with "There was no magic, it was you all along" twist, supernatural family drama-but it's on firmest footing as a macabre comedy.

    A supernatural take on "Death Wish" meets "Faust," Heartless is an uneasy mixture of B-movie shocks, social commentary and sentimentality that shows a potent imagination at work.

    Best appreciated for its sustained creepy vibe and sporadically arresting images, Heartless moves from one outré moment to another, from one self-conscious allusion to the next ("Donnie Darko" and "Taxi Driver"). It doesn't go anywhere special or much of anywhere, though it goes there in appreciably icky style.
