  1. A not-bad ghost story that marks a comeback of sorts for its star, Michael Keaton, who hasn't top-billed a movie for almost a decade.
  2. Has a low-key tone that works in its favor for a time.
  3. Boring and fundamentally silly.
  4. It's yet another warm, fuzzy, New-Age tale that cozies us into believing the grave doesn't mean oblivion.

    There's not much more to this poorly scripted thriller than exactly one well-done shock moment and Michael Keaton's eyebrows, but, to be fair, Keaton's brows have carried three Tim Burton films nearly on their own, so don't let this dissuade you from seeing the film.

    Poor Keaton, a capable actor who was absent from the screen for several years, is hamstrung by the material even more than in last year's dismal "First Daughter."
  7. 12
    A moronic exercise in supernatural claptrap.

Although I do not believe in the paranormal this movie was epic and contained everything necessary for it to be suspenseful. Apparently it was a direct to dvd release which only adds to its cult status. Collapse

    Pretty good with some decent scares and a great performance from Michael Keaton as the architect mourning his wife. The ghost effects IPretty good with some decent scares and a great performance from Michael Keaton as the architect mourning his wife. The ghost effects I thought were really cool and the whole serial killer sub plot came totally out of the blue for me. In sum, a decent thriller that is a great movie to watch on Halloween. Expand
