The pages that whisper through this brooding, beautiful tone poem are from nineteenth-century Russian literature, primarily Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment. An anonymous man wanders through decomposing, fog-enshrouded catacombs and encounters a series of “the degraded and the humiliated,” including a holy prostitute and a Kafkaesque bureaucrat. Shot partly in Sokurov’s dreamlike black and white with a dense sound track of eerie, echoing voices and bursts of mournful Mahler.

(kr) wrote: Now here is a different and intriguing psychological thriller that's more keen on delivering an novel story and suspense than anyhting else. The film opens with a couple played by Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Josh Stewart who give modest performances on a road trip to a wedding who get into a minor crash and decide to stop at a motel to get some rest then strange things start to happen that unlocks dark secrets within themselves. The movie is never scary, action packed or thrilling but it was unsettling, creepy, atmospheric and suspenseful like putting togething a puzzle or trying to solve a mystery novel before your done reading it and it's definitely different from the norm but at the same time it treads familiar territory. The movie starts out like Vacancy then changes to a Twilight Zone episode then a little bit of Passengers and Flatliners but enough creativeness to stand on it's own. The movie has a very slow pace and the beginning was confusing until you figure out what is going and how the stories and characters are connected. I really liked the ending because something comes good out of the tense, depressing and unsettling story and I was satisfied with the movie as a whole for the effort and the idea alone, kudos! Overall the look of the movie was simple, direct to dvd like but the story and the outcome is strong enough to recommend at least one veiwing. More of a 2.5 stars out of 5 stars.

They try to make it seem like it's about vampires when it's about a ghost of sorts. It's a movie about life and death revolving a group of young girls. Even though stuff does happen you wouldn't remember it because it never really holds your interest.Scott Speedman as the new teacher was fairly pointless because they never really resolve anything.
(it) wrote: The premise for this sci-fi horror is a pretty good one and the film starts off well, but the increasingly silly survival plot and the lame characters that are hard to take serious in this situation ruin it all.
(it) wrote: Not a Great movie but it has it's moments. Seeing Ford back in his original role makes it worth seeing however

(kr) wrote: Notable for the catchy song, the inspiration for the log ride, and the controversy for showcasing America's problem they had in two-thirds of the 1900s, Disney's wondrous live-action animated classic still lives on with the praising of the late Baskett's performance, along with the good animated portions.
