The day before her 16th birthday Lisa wakes up and begins to realise she has done this all before and that she and her family are reliving the same day again and again in a Groundhog Day style manner but with elements of supernatural horror thrown in as Lisa starts to unwind the story of what happened to them on that day.
There's a great cast including Stephen McHattie as the evil Pale Man and Peter Outerbridge from Regenesis as Lisa's father and Abigail Breslin as Lisa.
Not to give too much of the plot away but I'm a horror movie fan and I love decent ghost stories that rely on the strength of the actual story and not buckets of fake blood, I enjoyed this movie almost as much as I did The Others. There are the odd moments that tend to drag but there is more than enough in the remaining 80% or so to maintain interest and it does have a decent ending.
There's just one extra a 20 minute Behind The Scenes documentary with interviews with the writer, director and several leading cast members.
If you like a well told spooky tale it's well worth a watch and one that I will definitely be watching again.

I thought this was a good ghost story. I worried the 'goundhog' day style might be a bit boring but it wasn't and I wanted to know what was going on. Good acting with some real scary moments. We need more ghost stories like this that have real quality about them.

***** Contains plot spoiler that comes at 30 minutes into film...or not if you read the story line*****

Lisa (Abigail Breslin) wakes up as Bill Murray every morning ala "Ground Hog Day" in 1985. At 30 minutes into the film she also realizes she is Nicole Kidman from "The Others." (Sorry if you haven't seen that film.) It seems she is trapped inside the house with the ghost of a serial killer (Stephen McHattie) who is still active.

The film was done rather smartly. There is an error early on when mom (Samantha Weinstein) calls Robbie (Peter DaCunha) "Buster Brown" one day and then "Charlie Brown" the next day when the days are supposed to be identical. Bad editing that could have been changed with a simple voice over.

Lisa, being our main character and hero also provides us with the film target audience of young teen girls. The horror is mostly subtle. Although the guy is a serial killer, the film refrains from the gore aspect with "intense" scenes not being "Hell Raiser"intense.

I watched this film without reading the storyline and found trying to figure out what was going on enjoyable. This is a film you might want to watch with the family without letting them read the story line.

Would make a great horror rental.

If you watched and liked The Others you will most likely love this one too. This is a bit more straightforward and more predictable (you will get an idea pretty quickly), but nevertheless good. A big lover of a proper ghost story, I found a lot in this movie to like. A girl finds herself in a ground-hog day scenario and has to find out what is behind the repetition of things, why her family is behaving so strangely and what she needs to do to brake the circle.

It is not entirely free of cliché, and you will undoubtedly recognise all of them, but still I think that a really good ghost movie should rely on a story, play acting and "atmosphere", rather than rivers of blood and gore and rotten corpses falling from cupboards. And this film is certainly up to the challenge.

Oh, and the villain was pretty convincing and well played, which is sort of rarity. They are mostly schematic and violent these days.

This film is a very beautifully written ghost story with a twist. Very original, uses none of the tired and over-used gimmicks and scares. Loved the story, the acting, and the atmosphere was very tense. Highly recommend it.

Really good film and a good twist on the old classic haunting films. An interesting concept of seeing life through the eyes of ghosts rather than the living, a similar film to "the others" but with a more mysterious and chilling storyline. I really recommend this film its a good watch!!!

I really enjoyed this from start to finish. As a horror film, I think it fails. However as a supernatural thriller and a character driven story it really works. It was also a really original concept. Breslin shines as the protagonist, she's very talented and believable, she draws you into the story and forces you to empathise with the character. I liked the slow development at the start, giving you information in drips really worked for this story and I think it got the balance spot on for giving you information. The conclusion didn't answer all the questions, it told you enough, and only enough - but I think that's a strength.

I recently watched 'The Conjuring' and thought that was an amazing re-imagination of 'Amityville Horror' this - I honestly don't know what I could compare it to. It's almost like a clever 'reverse' poltergeist, and in fact the pale man in this story reminds me of the villainous spirit from the original Poltergeist 2.

Unusually for this sort of story, it actually has a truly satisfying ending. You're often left at the end of these kind of films wondering whether the evil has been defeated and got it's just desserts or not. In this tale, it's all wrapped up very nicely.

All in all I'd highly recommend this film. It doesn't have the jump scares of 'The Conjuring' and it doesn't try to drown you with blood like 'The Evil Dead' however it definitely has that 'creep factor' - there are moments when you'll get that tingling in your spine. The cinematography is very clever too and the rules of the universe seem consistent and seamless. I'd say of all these sort of films I've seen this year this was my favourite, though 'The Conjuring' and 'The Falling' with Maisie Williams were both brilliant too.

A definite 5 Stars from me!
