  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. But Keaton is a mistake. He's an actor with an innate sense of irony firmly grounded in the here and now. Even as Batman, skepticism was his forte; true belief falls way outside his range.
  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.
  5. Hampered by Niall Johnson's script, which is often confusing, muddy and ultimately cliche-ridden.
  6. 25
    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. Expand

    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

    A concept that is interesting but a movie that was made horribly and didn't make sense at all. Half the time your watching Michael KeatonA concept that is interesting but a movie that was made horribly and didn't make sense at all. Half the time your watching Michael Keaton watch a screen with a look on his face that he well knows he is in a garbage of a film. Collapse

    The most boring uneventful "horror" movie that I ever laid eyes on. Such a pathetic movie with absolutely nothing to offer except misery.
