So ghosts are morons who kill indiscriminately... What else is new.
What was that ending all about? You wait and wait for something to
finally happen, something that will make half-way any sense, something
that will connect the rather flimsy-looking dots into something at
least resembling logic but then... So the cop's wife is the killer? Did
she beat the child? If so, who wounded her own arms? Herself? Did she
and her cop husband both beat the girl? (Perhaps the director and the
scriptwriter joined them in the beating...) Did the cop and his wife
both beat on the girl, and then each other - and then themselves? (I
gotta keep my mind open for all possible ludicrous combinations when it
comes to TE.) Why would the ghosts of the mother and the daughter kill
all those people?
Once again ghosts are just some violent, confused imbeciles who go
around killing the wrong people. One would presume that ghosts, having
nothing better to do all day than sit/stand around hallways staring
into empty space, would have ample time to figure things out, i.e. who
their friends and foes are. But no... Average horror-film's ghost's IQ:
15 point 3.
The ghosts display the ability to haunt outside their natural habitat
by hassling Bobby's girlfriend, played by the beautiful Amelia Warner.
So why didn't they use those abilities to get revenge on the old man
who lives across the street, who failed to call for help when he saw
that something was happening? Not much makes sense in this slow-moving,
garbled ghost flick.
Bobby's girlfriend arrives to his flat TWICE unannounced. What kind of
people visit others without calling them first? Was this the
pre-mobile-phone 18th century age? His boss does this also, once. How
very convenient. What a nice little plot-device.
No-one tells anybody anything, every conversation is about trivialities
which, again, conveniently creates opportunities for the dimwitted
ghosts to take advantage of various situations, over and over. And here
I thought it was Bergman's asinine dramas that revolved around a lack

What if you refused to help a person in need and paid for it in a more horrible way than you can comprehend?
~As will be reviewed in the June 2010 issue of Twisted Dreams Magazine
- Contains spoilers!~ Have you ever seen someone in need and offered to
help? Or are you one of those people who passes people by and thinks,
someone else will do it don't get involved? What if your lack of
involvement caused devastating circumstances to the victim? What if
because of your refusal to help, they sought vengeance against you?
Meet Bobby. Newly out of jail (and I later found out that it was not
his fault and was reminded of how badly the American "justice" system
sucks. But you'll have to watch to find out why he was jailed!) and
just wanting to start over again. He tries to pick up the pieces of
what was once his life and moves into his deceased mother's apartment.
And that's when the trouble starts.
It begins with noises, odd and troubling sounds that wake him up and
then the visions of his dead mother begin to play havoc with his mind
and he is slowly sucked into a never-ending nightmare.
His neighbor, Gina (Calzado) is an abused wife whose husband, Walter
(played with far too chilling realism by Durand) likes to come home and
smack around on both her and their daughter, Carly.
Bobby may have been in prison, but he still won't stand for his
neighbor cop or not to beat on his wife and kid and tries to
help but things just start getting stranger.
The visions begin to happen more and more frequently and it's not just
Bobby who finds himself thrust into the middle of something he doesn't
understand. The visions also begin to manifest themselves to Alyssa
(Warner) and to other tenants of the building.
However the more Bobby tries to help, the more dangerous Walter becomes
with devastating consequences to Gina and Carly.
But things are not as they seem and as Bobby slowly loses his sanity
(or so he feels) he finds out the real reason why he's being tormented
and what he has to do to stop it.
This is a great Noir movie, simply seething with dark tension and
chills. I sat on my couch, anxiously anticipating each scene and was so
involved that my husband looked at me and said, "Holding hands with
yourself, dear?" I looked down and my hands were clamped so tightly
together I was cutting off circulation.
Dark, tragic and with a stellar performance by Kevin Durand as the
wife-beating cop that will leave you hating him, but feeling solemn
compassion for him as well, culminate to a head in the explosive ending
and you'll never quite look at cops or apartment buildings the same,
