The "surprise ending" of this movie was telegraphed pretty early in the film .. so that kind of killed the suspense factor.
Otherwise this could have been a much better film considering the acting talent, great photography and overall mood and tone they were able to create.
But in the end, something just doesn't come together and give this movie the spark it could have had.
One redeeming feature of the film ..... if you are a young man who likes Christine Ricci, you will get LOTS of opportunity to see more of her in this film.
She spends 75% of the movie walking, sitting and laying around nude.
Since she is cute, you can't find any fault with that !
What struck me as the most eerie in this film was how Liam Neeson made this movie so near the time of his own wife's death.
It is the same strange feeling when you see Christopher Reeve's last movie where he played a paralyzed cop and weeks later was of course really paralyzed.
Or seeing John Wayne in the Shootist playing an old gunslinger trying to die in peace from cancer when we know that in real life he was battling cancer when he made that film.
