    Individual moments linger, but Gonzalo López-Gallego's film is merely a rough draft of a thriller.

    The screenplay by Eddie and Chris Borey fails to live up to the juiciness of the original premise, lacking meaningful character development and teasing out its unveiling of its mysterious plot elements in dull, plodding fashion.

    The real problem with Open Grave is that screenwriters Eddie and Chris Borey have no game plan for getting from their mysterious premise to their big reveal, which isn’t all that shocking or unexpected anyway.

It's a little slow going initially but picks up and becomes less mystery and more of a good horror film as it goes along. The first part of the movie is moody and creepy and the second part is suspenseful. I'm not sure I understand the critics' criticisms. There isn't tremendous depth to the characters but who cares? That's not what this sort of movie is at all about. The plot twist was perfectly acceptable IMO. Full Review »
