Format: DVD
Twixt is written and directed by Francis Ford Coppola. It stars Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning, Ben Chaplin, Joanne Whalley and Don Novello. Music is by Dan Deacon and Osvaldo Golijov and cinematography by Mihai Malaimare.

Hall Baltimore (Kilmer) is a struggling writer of witchcraft based novels, during a book signing stop over in a sleepy backwater American town, he finds himself involved with evil, murder and Edgar Allan Poe's Ghost. But just what is real here?...

Twixt finds Coppola in relaxed mode, in the later stages of his film making career, he's clearly made an adventurous movie based on a dream and personal instances. Very much operating in the realm of dreamscaping, both on visual and narrative terms, it's an often silly picture yet one that still beguiles with its weirdness and daring visual touches. There's also a good quotient of humour, both self aware and absurd, but if searching for a horror movie here you will be very disappointed. The Lynchian feel to it ensures it's an interesting misfire, while the cast are all very enjoyable, but it's not a film for a concrete recommendation. 6/10

Format: DVD
Hack horror writer Hal Baltimore, Val Kilmer, goes to a small town for a book signing engagement and to write a new novel. In between drinking and arguing with his ex wife about money he meets the local sheriff, Bruce Dern, who offers to collaborate on a true crime story about the murder of a young girl who may be some sort of vampire.

Surprisingly playful low budget outing for legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, Twixt is ostensibly set in a world that exist somewhere betwixt a dream and the ruminations of a procrastinating author. There is a simple mystery at the film's core, but it seems to be more about the nature of American Gothic traditions than anything else. A young ghostly girl drifts in and of the story, Edgar Allen Poe makes frequent visits and the leader of a local Goth commune quotes Baudelaire as the narrative takes in everything from the small town American nightmares of Stephen King and Twin Peaks to 1990s Devil Rock of Danzig and Marilyn Manson to the Twilight saga and The Raven. In short this is the Coppola who got his break working for Roger Corman and who was interested enough in the horror genre to direct a big budget adaptation of Dracula as well as producing movies like Jeepers Creepers.

Twixt is not a great film, but is still interesting and quirky enough to entertain if you catch it in the right frame of mind.

Format: DVD
***Slight plot spoiler review as I explain what I think is going on, but not the ending***

Attempting to come to terms with the death of his daughter, a down on his luck horror author finds himself in the small town of Swan Valley, one that has its own haunted tale. The film uses human parallels to create a story.

Hall Baltimore (Val Kilmer) is convinced by Sheriff Bobby LaGrange (Bruce Dern) to stay in town and collaborate on a book he is working on. The town has a bell tower with 7 clocks all with a different time to illustrate the timelessness of tales. As Baltimore dreams he sees the crime of children being murdered as shown to him by Edgar Allen Poe (Ben Chaplin) his writer alter ego. There is the mysterious V, or Virginia (Elle Fanning) the vampire who represents his own daughter Vicky. We see this symbolism as he attempts to write the tale confusing Vicky with Virginia and as he talks to Poe, who is sometimes not there.

It is an interesting tale that is filled with mystery and light on the vampire and horror part. I think the film would had been better with the "1408" John Cusack in the starring role instead of Kilmer. Not a film for everyone, but it kept me engaged.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. The blood was light outside of one spray.

I can only assume that the intended film is somewhere on the cutting room floor and this mish mash got sent out by mistake!!
Bargain basement Stephen King meets Edgar Alan Poe, a dead daughter, Val Kilmer with a dodgy ponytail and a colour scheme that defies all photographic knowledge.

Wow this is either destined for cult status...not or that aforementioned bargain basement

At no time does Twixt feel like a Francis Ford Coppola film. While some of the colours are very rich, Twixt feels like a film made by a newcomer rather than a veteran of cinema.

The story is odd and roughly goes like the following: Val Kilmer is a writer, he is passing by a dead end town signing books, to which no one turns up. He is convinced to stay on because a local sheriff and part time writer tells him about a mysterious mass killing which happened in the town years ago. When Kilmer goes to sleep he has vivid accounts of just what happened and now tries to piece all of this together.

Bruce Dern plays the cop- and part of the appeal of watching Twixt is to see Dern. Not his greatest performance by a long stretch but he's always so watchable. There are some other interesting characters along the way. But ultimately the way Twixt pans out will leave you a little empty. There was a great film in here and it doesn't quite come off. Still Twixt is still very watchable.
