5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant June 5 2010
Format:DVD
I'm a horror fan but find that 99 out of a 100 horror movies are boring and predictable.

Maybe it was because I knew nothing of this movie when I watched it but thought it was brilliant. There's no gore, no amazing effects, it's just suspenseful in the way of the 6th sense. The ending has a twist I've never seen in a horror movie before.

I have recommended this movie to all those you I know love horror, didn't tell them about them movie, and they loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scary in the tradition of old-fashioned horror films April 11 2010
By Rick H - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I caught this on cable recently and was pleasantly surprised that someone still knows how to make an old-fashioned horror film, in a similar vein as "Two On A Guillotine", or a William Castle film and other black-and-white scary films of the late 50's/early 60's. It also reminded me a bit of something Rod Serling might have done, similar to a Night Gallery episode. It's more of a psychologically-based horror film than it is modern day horror film. (If you're sick of vampire movies, you might find this one really refreshing to see, a film that harkens back to the days of those earlier fright films mentioned.) Recommended for good, old-fashioned haunted house movie scares.

4.0 out of 5 stars You don't think. You know. Oct. 20 2009
By New Age of Barbarism - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
_The Skeptic_ (2008) is a decent movie about a lawyer/skeptic who is forced to re-think things after he starts seeing visions of ghosts. The movie brings up important issues from psychology such as how perception/misperception determines our reality, etc. The movie also touches upon the philosophical issues that have taken such an important place in the modern world - skepticism/gullibility, openness, reason and science, and the role of faith, etc. Ultimately, the film shows the descent of the skeptic into madness as he is increasingly haunted by memories of his past and visions of ghosts. Although he begins as highly skeptical, he is initially challenged by a para-psychological researcher (who also doubts the supernatural) into re-thinking his world-view and understanding. After it is revealed to him how perceptions can deceive, he begins to question certain aspects of reality. He then consults a psychologist who discusses with him his early childhood and shows him the difficulties he must face. At the end, he must confront his past and the ghost of his dead mother.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where did this one come from? Dec 19 2010
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I've seen this movie offered through netflex but decided to pass. Glad I caught it on showtime. I never heard about this one. It was worth the watch..I hated the ending, but only because this one isn't like most movies and I wanted there to be a different ending. I'll leave it at that. Watch this one.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Happened upon this by accident - loved it!! As a long-time fan of the horror/scary genre, I love a movie that makes me laugh, cry, and jump within a short span of time. I actually cried out a few times, I was so into it! Great suspense and acting and I would recommend it highly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Manages to be great without the gore! Aug. 31 2010
By J. Arena - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The Skeptic is a horror movie that manages to enthrall the audience without resorting to a blood-fest or in-your-face nightmarish images. This is the kind of film that made me a horror movie fan back in grade school. Great performances, production values and the pure power of suggestion are enough to bring me back to The Skeptic over and over again. The writing is intelligent, and will captivate you from the opening scene.

Excellent film well worth purchasing!
