3.0 out of 5 stars The bit in between the dream and waking worlds. 14 Dec 2013
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
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

1.0 out of 5 stars Val Kilmer wasted 2 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
I agree with the other reviewers who give this film a 1 star. what a boring film. Val Kilmer is wasted in this kind of film. and Bruce Dern cannot help to make this tripe of rubbish move any better. watched about half hour and binned it for the second-hand shop. what rubbish. and to think of the great big films that Francis Ford Copolla has made in the past and now bringing out this kind of boring dribble well what next? DO AVOID BUYING THIS FILM! save your money and get something else to watch whereby you will be better entertained then this awful boring pathetic crap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the IMDB reviews 25 Jan 2013
By PJ Rankine TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you read the reviews on IMDB you will never watch this film. If you like films with a gothic fantasy touch then you'll be missing out.
Reviewers talk of a rambling storyline and I find myself wondering if they watched the same film. What did they expect from Francis Ford Coppola? The Godfather 6?
Val Kilmer plays a washed up author who drags himself around dead end towns flogging his books at unattended book signings. When he reaches Swann Valley; a town with a haunted past, he meets Bruce Dern's wannabe writer sheriff who shows him a corpse in his morgue with a stake in its chest. He then hints at the town's lurid past and invites him to co-write a book about it.
That night Val has a dream where he meets a young female ghost called V; played by Elle Fanning, who asks for his help and tells him more about the story.
He also discovers an abandoned hotel where Edgar Allen Poe once stayed and in his dreams meets with Poe and elicits his help in solving the mystery and writing his book.
There are no confusing parts to the story so long as you pay attention and follow it, the title alludes to the fact that a lot of the action takes place 'twixt and between', in a twilight world where reality and fantasy become blurred.
Everything is filmed and framed beautifully as you'd expect and Kilmer gives his best performance since 'Kiss kiss, bang bang' as the washed up author haunted by guilt about the death of his own daughter.
If you like something a little out of the ordinary then give this a try.

2.0 out of 5 stars Twixt weirdness and dreams 24 Feb 2014
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Once upon a time, Francis Ford Coppola made movies like "The Godfather" and "Apocalypse Now." He also made "Bram Stoker's Dracula," but that doesn't eclipse his accomplishments.

But Francis Ford Coppola clearly has entered the "I'm going to do whatever I want, even if it makes no sense" phase in his career. Exhibit A: "Twixt," a baffling little movie that twines together ghosts, vampire bikers, child murder, Edgar Allen Poe and a big messy knot of subplots that may or may not be real.

I once tried to summarize "Twixt" to an acquaintance, and ended up babbling incoherently about Poe, vampires, ghosts and dead children. But I'll try to tackle it anyway: Second-string horror author Hall Baltimore (Val Kilmer) is touring for his latest novel, and ends up in a small town that doesn't even have a bookstore. That evening, he encounters a strange, ghostly young girl who calls herself "V" (Elle Fanning).

He soon finds that strange things are afoot in this town -- time seems to be frozen (none of the clock faces move), there is a gang of bikers who may be vampires camped out on the lakeshore, and the ghost of Edgar Allen Poe visits him in his dreams to reveal half-forgotten secrets. And what does all this have to do with the recently-murdered girl lying in the police station?

It's really hard to even pass judgement on "Twixt" -- it would involve understanding what the director was trying to do... or thinking... or understanding ANYTHING. It feels like Coppola had four or five different ideas for stories ("Vampire bikers! A vampire/ghost orphan! Dream messages from Poe! A failing author with personal issues!"), and so he squashes all of them into one movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars A SINGLE WORD IS THE BEST REFRAIN 23 Aug 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.
