I came across this film on sky anytime+ and decided to give it a go. this film seems to have a lot of negative reviews on here, but I cant for the life of me understand why! this is NOT a horror film it is a pyschological thriller and the build up is quite subtle. perhaps too subtle for a few people??? ok. so christina ricci is a sad human being and following an argument with her boyfriend, she "dies" in a car crash, waking up in the basement of a funeral home where liam neeson plays the creepy undertaker, who can apparantely communicate with the dead to help them make the transition to the afterlife, about to begin the preparation of her body for her funeral. at first ricci refuses to accept that she is dead and trys somewhat half heartedly to escape. some people have referred to these scenes as poor scripting or bad acting, however i believe that the lack of true heroine escape attempts shows that some people are more scared of living than dying, pivotal to neeson's character being able to convince the living that they really are dead. I dont want to say to much more as dont want to take away from the feeling the film gives you as you are watching, the twist and turns are great, and several times throughout i found myself switching between believing she is dead and alive. i will finish by saying that this is not a film for lovers of slasher horrors that make you watch from behind a pillow, this is a film for people who prefer to think and make up their own mind about what is really going on.
