    Blanchett deserves an oscar nod for her performance in this hair raising thriller.

    The only reason I liked this movie was it had a nice shot at Katie Holme's ....s. Good Casting.

    If this movie is a prelude to what 2001 is going to be like at the box office then viewers are in for one helluva year.

    In terms of cleverly hidden exposition, this ain't "The Sixth Sense."
  2. Outside of a strong (and largely misused) cast and an abundance of moody atmosphere, there's precious little to recommend this exploitative mess.

    A solidly crafted, suspensefully written, powerfully acted little juggernaut.
