5.0 out of 5 stars Old School Ghost Story 31 Dec 2011
Really well made,well acted, really creepy and perfect little ghost story. The ending is predictable but only because, like all the best ghost stories, it's a trap.
The skeptic of the title is seeing things he understands perfectly, but doesn't want to believe in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get your cushion ready! 23 April 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is not your average horror,it is a genuinely scary ghost story.There are not many of those around that keep you hiding behind your cushion,but this one did.Tim Daly was very good ,as the none believer who inherits his aunts house and the plot thickens as he begins to find out about his past.Keep the lights on, on your way to bed.If you liked the Woman in Black and 100 Feet, you will enjoy this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is The House Really Haunted 19 April 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Plot. A guy who doesn't believe in ghosts or the supernatural moves into the house where his aunt lived while she was alive to look after the place. After dismissing several events the "hauntings" become more serious so he goes looking for help. As the film progresses the man learns about his past.
This is an interesting film that was well acted. Lots of creepiness in the house but while it held my interest in what would happen next I didn't find it all that spooky or tense. It felt like a TV movie even tough this is unrated and while it was entertaining with all the reveals and twists near the end it came across as having an ending that was rushed. And this I found to be unsatisfying even though I enjoyed the film up to that ending.
Extras nil, just trailers. USA Release Region 1

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but ending was lame! 12 Mar 2012
I loved this film. I thought the storyline was well written, acting was convincing and the general atmosphere was gripping. What I thought was lacking, was perhaps a little more tension. There were very few 'apparitions' and ghostly happenings. The cupboard upstairs was spooky, but I think the main character should had more 'visitations'.

The ending was a little disappointing. It was abstract, but meaningful at the same time. It seemed as though the ending was done in a hurry; as though the producer couldn't be bothered giving a proper conclusion.

I give this 4 stars. Good film, but room for improvement :D

4.0 out of 5 stars Scary in the tradition of old-fashioned horror films 12 April 2010
By Rick H - Published on
I caught this on cable recently and was pleasantly surprised that someone still knows how to make an old-fashioned horror film, in a similar vein as "Two On A Guillotine", or a William Castle film and other black-and-white scary films of the late 50's/early 60's. It also reminded me a bit of something Rod Serling might have done, similar to a Night Gallery episode. It's more of a psychologically-based horror film than it is modern day horror film. (If you're sick of vampire movies, you might find this one really refreshing to see, a film that harkens back to the days of those earlier fright films mentioned.) Recommended for good, old-fashioned haunted house movie scares.

4.0 out of 5 stars You don't think. You know. 20 Oct 2009
By New Age of Barbarism - Published on
_The Skeptic_ (2008) is a decent movie about a lawyer/skeptic who is forced to re-think things after he starts seeing visions of ghosts. The movie brings up important issues from psychology such as how perception/misperception determines our reality, etc. The movie also touches upon the philosophical issues that have taken such an important place in the modern world - skepticism/gullibility, openness, reason and science, and the role of faith, etc. Ultimately, the film shows the descent of the skeptic into madness as he is increasingly haunted by memories of his past and visions of ghosts. Although he begins as highly skeptical, he is initially challenged by a para-psychological researcher (who also doubts the supernatural) into re-thinking his world-view and understanding. After it is revealed to him how perceptions can deceive, he begins to question certain aspects of reality. He then consults a psychologist who discusses with him his early childhood and shows him the difficulties he must face. At the end, he must confront his past and the ghost of his dead mother.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where did this one come from? 19 Dec 2010
By David - Published on
I've seen this movie offered through netflex but decided to pass. Glad I caught it on showtime. I never heard about this one. It was worth the watch..I hated the ending, but only because this one isn't like most movies and I wanted there to be a different ending. I'll leave it at that. Watch this one.

By T. Betts - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Happened upon this by accident - loved it!! As a long-time fan of the horror/scary genre, I love a movie that makes me laugh, cry, and jump within a short span of time. I actually cried out a few times, I was so into it! Great suspense and acting and I would recommend it highly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Manages to be great without the gore! 31 Aug 2010
By J. Arena - Published on
The Skeptic is a horror movie that manages to enthrall the audience without resorting to a blood-fest or in-your-face nightmarish images. This is the kind of film that made me a horror movie fan back in grade school. Great performances, production values and the pure power of suggestion are enough to bring me back to The Skeptic over and over again. The writing is intelligent, and will captivate you from the opening scene.

Excellent film well worth purchasing!
