Doctors should prescibe this film for insomniacs, would save a truck load of money.

This is not as bad as some say, although it is rather slow; would recommend as a cure for insomnia. It is that perfect film to try to watch at any time and never fails to send you to sleep, perhaps this is its charm, before the real nasty stuff comes along you are away in never land. A scenic film and with some good and bad acting. Its not scary, but does have an element of sinister goings on, which are perhaps too subtle to appreciate or indeed recognise for that matter. It does try, and some appear to try, and the film again is nice to look at, but it just fails to achieve what some may expect it to do, which is to emulate the creepy undertones of the original in a different way, yet at same time paying homage and adding something different. It must be hard to make a remake given this double edged sword, and if the director and some involved are fans of the original perhaps things can get a little too serious which marrs precedings. Anyway its average at best, but if a fan of Cage, then it is a must see for he does give a good go at it.
