Format: DVD
First, whoever says this film either sucks, or is confusing, lame - they probably didn't understand it.

Like many, I was so sick to death of all the Hollywood releases this past year. Almost every horror movie being released has been a complete gore fest! Now I have nothing against gore but, enough is enough. Movies like Saw, Hostel, are pitiful, ridiculous movies. Film makers have stopped trying to deliver a solid script, instead they just lay anything that's anything on the table - body part wise. Where has the good suspense gone???

Look no further. The Return has brought it back!!

Before watching the movie, my friend insisted I don't watch it. I had already read all the bad reviews. People claiming the film was too confusing, or lacked any real story line - these people are dumb. When the credits rolled, I couldn't wait to purchase the movie and watch it all over again.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is an amazing actress and carries the movie well. Her blind stare and almost zombie like presence captures the characters feelings and emotions beautifully.

The Return has a lot of suspense and jumpy moments. If you're sick of seing blood splattered everywhere and would like a good thriller, this is your movie.

Don't listen to the bad reviews!

I think that Sarah Michelle Gellar or whoever she works with must have a thing for eyes, as you can see that the artwork for a lot of her movies features a big eye on the poster or DVD front cover (The Return, Possession, The Grudge 1&2 and Scream 2). Regardless, I thought that this was a film worth watching and it did have suspense and shock elements to it, something that the Grudge never did for me. With the majority of my family being big SMG fans, I thought that it would be worth getting this film, and especially for the price at which I bought it. The film is not a scary horror as such (as the front cover might suggest). In fact a supernatural murder mystery is probably the best way to summarise this feature. It is a film I recommend, especially if you are a SMG fan yourself.

Format: DVD
I must admit, I was ready to turn this off after the first 20-25 minutes, as there's precious little pace, patchy dialogue and no tension as we are introduced to the central characters of the film. Things improve steadily from there on, though, as the director plays on the dark atmosphere, and more and more unanswered questions pile up. By the end of the film it was all clicking into place with quite an unexpected twist guaranteed to have viewers admitting "I never saw that coming"!

Gellar turns in a good, solid performance as expected, and is supported well by mysterious, brooding Peter O'Brien and the chauvinist evil of Adam Scott. The supernatural theme builds well, and the central menace is as ugly and as horridying as you'd expect from Gellar's anxiety on screen.

Worth sticking with - it's a good film if you make it through the first half hour.

Even though I've only scored this film with 2 stars I wouldn't say it's a bad film. The story is actually quite good and mostly original, it's just the film is really lethargic and as others have said, has a really slow pace.

I found myself quite bored at times and would have switched it off if I wasn't a fan of Sarah Michelle Gellar from her Buffy days. I wouldn't reccomend this film to anyone but I wouldn't suggest to stay clear of it either. As others have given it good reviews it obviously can find an audience.

I would suggest that as it's quite a short film and if like me you do get bored when watching it maybe it's worth sticking around for the ending, that's probably the best part, I don't mean that in a sarcastic way either.

Format: DVD
We all know that the japaneese-based horrors are the same basic story, but this was that story but even worse. It was confusing, wierd, and strange. I didnt really understand what I was watching (maybe I'm thick, but the other person watching it with me didnt either!). Having seen these reviews, it seems this is a marmite movie, but I definetely wouldnt recommend it!

Format: DVD
This mini but very decent horror stars the female horror no.1 actress, Sarah Michelle Gellar, once again encountering mysterious goings-on. (if you think of it that way)

The Return is different. Sarah plays brilliantly the troubled young woman who returns to her hometown, to clear her brain and get some answers to the terrifying happenings and her disturbing visions/ flashbacks. Shot in an extreemely moody mannor, Sarah's shy and brooding character, bleak and pail sets and incredibly confusing story (until the climax) alltogether, somehow create a wonderful and admittedly rather scary horror film. Describing it too much to you will spoil the film, because you really need to watch closely for any clues.

If you're after something like Gellar's previous work, i.e- 'The Grudge' films, then I reccomend you look elsewhere. However, if you like a very good, thought provoking and interesting mystery/ horror, 'The Return' is deffinately for you. Do not be put off by bad reviews, because those people probably didn't understand it!

A little more than 4 stars.

P.J.
