    Utterly...utterly...boring. Nothing ever happens. I give it a 2 just because I am a fan of Lena Olin. The movie is perfect from a cinematographic point of view, except maybe for the protragonist's disgusting habit of lighting up a cigarette every 5 minutes. But the story is so lame, it is hard to stay awake. The devil is too stupid to get a simple book ? Bad news for all the evil people inUtterly...utterly...boring. Nothing ever happens.

    Interesting story, yet cheesy dialogue and lame directing. Could have been epic had someone like maybe David Lynch directed it. Very boring.. disappointing.

    A supernatural thriller that is neither super, natural, nor thrilling.
  3. A film not even a star as foxed and foxy as Johnny Depp himself could save.
