This film has some interesting ideas and moments and it certainly has actors who could really pull off a fine performance, but this one feels rather underwhelming, coming from Roeg, especially with the camera work, which doesn't really feel like his to be honest. Certainly he's getting up there (early 80s now) but fuck, I certainly hope he's at least got one great last one in him following this.
Roeg disappoints with this mediocre (and unfortunately-titled) horror film. The capable cast does what they can with a hokey script - Miranda Richardson in particular gives a spirited performance - but the plot is ridiculous and the production values are uneven. The cheesy special effects and editing make it look little better than a cheap direct-to-DVD feature. A far cry from Roeg's sharp and original earlier work.
