2.0 out of 5 stars Twixt confusion and weirdness Feb. 24 2014
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Once upon a time, Francis Ford Coppola made movies like "The Godfather" and "Apocalypse Now." He also made "Bram Stoker's Dracula," but that doesn't eclipse his accomplishments.

But Francis Ford Coppola clearly has entered the "I'm going to do whatever I want, even if it makes no sense" phase in his career. Exhibit A: "Twixt," a baffling little movie that twines together ghosts, vampire bikers, child murder, Edgar Allen Poe and a big messy knot of subplots that may or may not be real.

I once tried to summarize "Twixt" to an acquaintance, and ended up babbling incoherently about Poe, vampires, ghosts and dead children. But I'll try to tackle it anyway: Second-string horror author Hall Baltimore (Val Kilmer) is touring for his latest novel, and ends up in a small town that doesn't even have a bookstore. That evening, he encounters a strange, ghostly young girl who calls herself "V" (Elle Fanning).

He soon finds that strange things are afoot in this town -- time seems to be frozen (none of the clock faces move), there is a gang of bikers who may be vampires camped out on the lakeshore, and the ghost of Edgar Allen Poe visits him in his dreams to reveal half-forgotten secrets. And what does all this have to do with the recently-murdered girl lying in the police station?

It's really hard to even pass judgement on "Twixt" -- it would involve understanding what the director was trying to do... or thinking... or understanding ANYTHING. It feels like Coppola had four or five different ideas for stories ("Vampire bikers! A vampire/ghost orphan! Dream messages from Poe! A failing author with personal issues!"), and so he squashes all of them into one movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terribly Disappointing! Aug. 31 2013
By fredamans TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Forty minutes into the movie, I was laughing my head off. For a horror film, that is a bad sign. That was also the only time I had any reaction to the film.
It was pretty disappointing. It didn't help I had such high hopes... a Francis Ford Coppola film with Val Kilmer... what could go wrong?! Enough, let me tell you.
It lacked any depth to the story. It had no character and the characters were boring.
Not going on my recommendation list either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing Gothic Visuals. July 20 2013
By robhartjr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
I love all kinds of movies from all genres whether they are mainstream released or independent distributed. A good movie is a good movie. Out of all the genres, I have always enjoyed a good horror movie. But even more, I enjoy mysterious Gothic horror movies!

I read the negative reviews and expected to hate the movie. But I ended up enjoying it! This movie is, like many reviewers have stated, very different from Francis Ford Coppolas previous works. Mr. Coppola has directed some of the greatest films ever made and many were destroying this film because it wasn't like the rest of his filmography. This happens to be one of the best Horror films in recent memory. I can see why this wasn't released nationwide in theaters because of it's independent art house feel. But I still thought this was better than a lot of the Horror movies that were graced with a nationwide theater count. The look of the film doesn't look like a typical horror movie in theaters, but it also doesn't look like direct-to-video quality. This is a great ghost, murder mystery movie with mesmerizing Gothic visuals. It almost had a 90s feel. The vibe of the film with its small town eerie setting reminded me of the John Carpenter classic "In the Mouth of Madness" at times. The acting is decent. Val Kimmer is okay as the lead and Elle Fanning is showing that she has more acting capabilities than her sister Dakotah. The make-up effects for the ghostly character V and others were simple yet haunting and clever. The cinematography is nicely done. One other memorable aspect of the film was the eerie soundtrack. It is beautiful and creepy at the same time which helps with the tone of the film. This movie as a whole reminded me of an R rated Goosebumps movie. I mean that in a good way. Many are saying the story is downright stupid or doesn't make sense. Well honestly, I love the dreamy incoherent plot. I could understand completely what was going on, but sometimes I just got lost in the artsy visuals that I didn't really care whether the story made sense or not. This is labeled as a Horror movie and I honestly expected more scares. But when I first watched it, I only jumped one or two times, and never saw anything that frightened me. I felt a little disappointed at that and felt I had wasted 16 bucks on this movie. Then after the ending, I just felt an uneasy feeling brought to me from the film. I felt creeped out. This movie isn't terrifying, but after much thought, it was scary at times. The movie sticks with you after the ending. That's what is masterful about this type of horror. This movie is receiving tormented reviews right now, but I can tell that throughout the years the reviews will get more and more positive. This isn't a mega masterpiece, but it is a good enough movie to have positive feedback. I'm saying you should give this a try before assuming it is bad because of the negative reviews. You might like it, you might hate it. But if you want a nice visual treat of a Horror/suspense movie, then rent or buy this. Turn off the lights, and enjoy the mysterious creepy ride!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to define, but very fun June 26 2013
By C Elderkin - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This movie has as many faces as the clock tower, so it is not easily defined. An homage to 80's grindhouse as much as it is an old fashioned thriller, as much as it is a comedy, as much as it is a noir. This movie is going to be hard to pin down and define for everyone. It is certainly a horror story in some sense, but somehow more than that. It has a little bit of everything, even an appearance of Edgar Allen Poe! Watch with the same enthusiasm and open mind that you would a movie with Bruce Campbell directed by Sam Raimi, and you wont be disappointed. I laughed, I was scared, and I enjoyed the imagery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dream-like Sept. 10 2013
By S. Brady - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A movie inspired by a dream Coppola had in Istanbul, the movie is atmospheric rather than frightening and not particularly gory. If you like the recent movies of Coppola like Tetro and Youth without Youth, you will like this one. If you're looking for Apocalyse Now or The Godfather, you will be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A SINGLE WORD IS THE BEST REFRAIN Aug. 22 2013
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
***Slight plot spoiler review as I explain what I think is going on, but not the ending***

Attempting to come to terms with the death of his daughter, a down on his luck horror author finds himself in the small town of Swan Valley, one that has its own haunted tale. The film uses human parallels to create a story.

Hall Baltimore (Val Kilmer) is convinced by Sheriff Bobby LaGrange (Bruce Dern) to stay in town and collaborate on a book he is working on. The town has a bell tower with 7 clocks all with a different time to illustrate the timelessness of tales. As Baltimore dreams he sees the crime of children being murdered as shown to him by Edgar Allen Poe (Ben Chaplin) his writer alter ego. There is the mysterious V, or Virginia (Elle Fanning) the vampire who represents his own daughter Vicky. We see this symbolism as he attempts to write the tale confusing Vicky with Virginia and as he talks to Poe, who is sometimes not there.

It is an interesting tale that is filled with mystery and light on the vampire and horror part. I think the film would had been better with the "1408" John Cusack in the starring role instead of Kilmer. Not a film for everyone, but it kept me engaged.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. The blood was light outside of one spray.
