!!!WARNING. MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

Having made her fortune in America as a Wall Street trader, Emma(Natalie Press) returns to the place of her birth, England, with her young son Thomas. She has returned to be with her new husband Henri(Matthieu Boujenah). Expecting to be moving to the city, Henri suprises Emma by driving into the countryside. He then produces an even bigger suprise, a huge country pile that he announces he has owned for three years, keeping it a secret for her return to England. Emma has a suprise of her own. She is expecting Henri's child. All appears well and good, but soon Emma is experiencing terrifying violent visions and young Thomas finds a creepy old doll that he calls Tobias. Henri seems affected too, as his behaviour becomes increasingly erratic. Friend of Emma's family Charles Pollack(Hugh Bonneville) is concerned for Emma's welfare as it soon becomes apparent that she may be having a breakdown. However, what exactly did happen in Henri's house years before, and is it influencing events in the present day?
This is a very accomplished psychological thriller. It does rely on a few hoary old cliches to drive it along, but it is all directed with such aplomb so that aspect is soon forgotten. Director Hickox knows how a certain off kilter camera angle can add oodles of menace to a particular scene, and he also uses the great British countryside to creepy effect. The performances are very good, with Press bringing an essential vulnerability to the role of Emma, a character trait that is necessary to cast doubt in the audience's mind regarding Emma's sanity. Bonneville nicely underplays the role of Pollack, however Boujenah is a little overwrought as Henri. There is also a nice little turn from veteran actress Joan Plowright as Marjorie, Thomas's nanny.

Take a witheringly prosaic story that's been done more times than a street-walker, throw in a couple of old pros to help steady the shaky lead protagonists (even if the hubby, a French guy I've never seen before, and probably never will again, is scorchingly hot), set it in a beautifully rain-lashed out-dated country-pile, then market it like the ghost story it's assuredly NOT so it sits in the horror section of any HMV dumb enough to get it in-and sometimes even a seasoned veteran like me will get suckered in by yet another cheating dud that stinks to high heaven of sheer routine, unimportance, and enough duplicitous advertising to make you think, even if the last dozen releases were soap/bulletin drama turkey dressed as horror peacock, odds are a real raptor has to jump out somewhere.

Well, no actually, the only jumping I did was a leap of rage when the giant shape in the upstairs corrdior slowly revealed to the light was a bloody carving, and it says it all when the best scene 'Knife Edge' has to offer is Natalie Press's husband getting his top off. A recent short article on Natalie Press fretted why her 'My Summer Of Love' co-star Emily Blunt had flown into the stratopshere, while she's been grounded. Duds like this are the answer, plus a performance veering from too good for the material to achingly embarrassing Joan Plowright shines best in this puddle of ineptitude, if only cos she did 'The Spiderwick Chronicles' the same year-kid's film it may be, but as is so often the case it delivers more for the horror fan than these overworked adult cheats. High time it was declared illegal for every overstretched Midsomer Murders episode and brat documentary to be instantly packaged 'horror' by way of simple exposure to the market.

Possibly one of the worst films ever made. Paper-thin, done-a-thousand-times-before plot. Not scarey, not a thriller - so obvious a plot I yawned all the way through. But the worst thing about this film - THE MOST DREADFUL ACTING OF ALL TIME by all cast (with exception of Joan Plowright). Who are these so-called "actors"???? Will actively avoid any other films they're in. Overall, wooden performances, oh-so-obvious plot and supposedly set in HUGE stately home somewhere in UK but filmed in just 3 of the rooms (obviously just small sets) so no feel of the grandeur of the place internally. So annoying, not just in lack of acting skills, but in her general demeanour throughout the film, I was desperate to stab the lead actress myself from the start. Don't waste your money - simply stand in your wardrobe for 10 minutes with the lights out for a more thrilling experience.

Euro-natural hash 8 Aug. 2011
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
What a mess. This pastiche of murder-mystery/psychological-thriller/haunted-house cliches tries to coast along on autopilot, its disjointed, psuedo-Hitchcockian plot borrowing greedily from an array of superior sources ('Gaslight,' 'The Shining' and any of various takes on 'The Turn of the Screw' most obviously), but gets bogged down by a muddled script, indecisive pacing and an overabundance of hand-me-down images and characters that seem not to know which genre they belong to. The dialogue, especially in scenes that require a shade of jargonistic authenticity (e.g., the opener at the Wall Street brokerage, Henri's urgent business dealings and the legal jockeying for control of the son's trust), is weak and so follows the bulk of the acting. Perhaps the creators thought they couldn't miss if they tossed enough familiar ingredients into the stew-- well, with the exception of some slick photography, they missed the pot altogether. 1 1/2 stars.

If you're in the market for a satisfyingly atmospheric supernatural mystery/thriller, check out 1995's 'Haunted,' 1981's 'The Changeling,' 1973's 'Don't Look Now' or 1961's 'The Innocents.'

Great Cast - But an Average Story 30 Mar. 2010
By Compay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Knife Edge is an average psychological horror film. And it shouldn't be, considering the cast. What immediately caught my attention was that it starred the lovely Natalie Press, whom I previously enjoyed in Fifty Dead Men Walking. Add award-winning actress Joan Plowright into the mix, and you have the potential for a terrific movie.

The problem? The story isn't very original. The "spooky home with a secret" concept has simply been overdone. The scariest elements of the film either borrow from different movies (the Orphanage, Changeling), or are recycled from others. How many films feature a scene where someone opens a medicine cabinet, grabs what they need, and closes it only to be surprised by what's in the reflection? Yet a veteran horror director still chose to include such a scene in this movie.

The film doesn't grab your attention until it reaches the halfway mark, and it doesn't gain steam until the final 15 minutes. Some of the earlier clues in the film also make the conclusion fairly predictable.

I wanted to enjoy this movie given the cast, but it simply brought nothing new to the table as far as psychological horror films go. Watch it once before deciding to buy the DVD.

Not as bad as all that! 20 Dec. 2011
By MommaMia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I've read other reviews and have to respectfully disagree. This movie is not as bad as all that!

Granted I didn't know any of the actors, except for Joan Plowright (who I adore, by the way), but overall, they didn't do a bad job at all. Some of the dialogue seemed contrived, yet what movie doesn't have a line or two that doesn't make you tilt your head and wonder what they were thinking when the wrote it?

Overall, a suspenseful mood is set, lighting, props, atmosphere, all were used to the greatest advantage and there were several moments that really made me jump.

I think this movie is definitely worth a viewing. It's not horrible at all. It's not the greatest story ever told, but if you are looking for a good suspenseful scare, this just might be it. If I were you, I'd ignore the nay-sayers and give it a try. Make up your own mind.

Mostly well worn tropes 24 April 2014
By Emily Veinglory - Published on Amazon.com
While it gets stronger in the closing scenes this is largely a 'by the numbers' horror movie. Worth watching for the few novel minor elements such as mixing seeing the past with seeing the future.
Knife Edge 23 Oct. 2013
By Alexis - Published on Amazon.com
Didn't know what to expect with this movie, but I was pleasantly surprised. There were some scenes that didn't make a lot of sense like how they just move into this huge mansion and their little boy goes wandering off and nobody seems to care where he is. Also the star of the movie is a short red head yet her sisters and brother are the like 9 feet tall Nordic looking blondes. But none of that really mattered. The movie had me in suspense the whole time. It was very unpredictable and a lot of fun. There was no nudity or sex and minor cussing. Not a lot of bloody gore or anything either. I would recommend it as a fun Halloween movie. My hubby enjoyed it as well.
