To sum up,writer Rachel's (Demi) son dies in a tragic accident so she decides to move to a secluded cottage in the scottish highlands to finish writing her latest book. Once there, she embarks on a love affair with the light house keeper, but all is not as it seems. Added to that are strange goings- on that lead Demi to question her sanity.
The acting is not always great. Demi's is okay as is her lighthouse lover's, but her best friend and husband's is appalling. Still, don't let that put you off as this is a genuinely good film with an excellent plot twist. I won't spoil it for you, suffice to say you won;t see it coming!
Not only is the storyline good, but the beautiful scenary and atmospheric music really do make it a better then average movie. It cerainly makes a change from the vile hostel/hills have eyes slasher flicks that are so often inflicted on us!
However the newcomer's stories of romantic trips to the lighthouse do not sit well with the local mainlanders, and it is not long before she has more terrible experiences and begins to fear for both her sanity, and ultimately, her life.
Beautifully filmed and in the main well-acted, this is an enjoyable film that mixes the genre of traditional Scottish ghost story with a more modern style of fayre such as "The Sixth Sense". Despite the unusual casing in Demi Moore, she seemed to suit this more mature and les glam role of a divorced mum in a coastal village in her heavy Argyll sweater!
The wrangling plot became a little confusing towards the end, particularly the attidute of her best friend which contributed to my lack of understanding of it; and there were shades of the unbelievable and more confusion in her stunt finale. But nevertheless, I thought this a nice creepy little film which I'm going to be watching again.
After exploring a nearby Lighthouse, she falls in love and once again feels complete... but not for long. Strange stories of the lighthouse begin to emerge and Rachel's own sanity is tested.
Personally, I thought the film was excellently directed and shot. With many a suspense filled twists, the film leaves the viewer wanting to know whats going to happen next.
Not one of Demi's best films (Nothing beats Ghost for me), but she is excllent in it. A must Watch!!
Demi Moore is best selling novellist Rachel - distraught at the death of her 5 year old son in a drowning accident - who seeks refuge in a remote part of Scotland some 8 months after his death. She strikes up a friendship with the lighthouse keeper, Angus, who begins to coax her out of her melencholy - only for her world to be rocked once more by impossible revelations from the local villagers.
As Rachel struggles to make sense of the madness around her, other figures from her past are moving closer and it seems that only help from beyond the grave can save her.
With breathtaking scenery, a nicely paced and filmed story and a good, solid performance from Demi Moore, this film is an unexpected treat with more than a nod to Alfred Hitchcock. No excessive gore, it relies on atmosphere, clever lighting and a spooky sound track to hold the viewers attention....
Get hold of a copy, dim the lights, open the wine - and get ready to jump!
I think I enjoyed the movie even better the second time.
I rented this the first time based on the plot outline. I haven't been a Demi Moore fan since that horrid horrid movie she did a few years ago where she had two lives-- one in America, one in France. Oh, she was just horrible in that even-more horrible movie! I really decided then and there that I wasn't a fan and she could not act.
But, she did an excellent job in this role.
I think what makes this movie so interesting-- and even better the second time-- is that there is a real mix of supernatural phenomena combined with non-supernatural. It can be a bit confusing at first, since the viewer is not sure if he or she is witnessing ghostly events or not.
What sets this movie apart from so many others is the ambience. Yes, it was beautifully filmed. But, even more so, the story moved along. There were so many things happening, so many interesting twists. Never, however, did the movie overwhelm the senses. It was quiet, serene, peaceful, yet always moving forward. Everything worked very well together.
Finally, the cast was really first rate. Hans Matheson was excellent. I am looking forward to seeing him again and plan to rent Deathwatch next (he's in that). And, the others were excellent, too.
