A highly original, beautiful ghost story,
This review is from: The Presence [DVD] (DVD)
This is not the typical Hollywood scary movie... there are not a lot of jumps, instead it creeps up on you. I guess in some ways it asks the audience to think and do a little work, which certainly seems to throw some people in the audience off. It's hard to explain without giving too much away so I will say take a chance and get the movie if you want something original and beautiful. The cinematography is amazing, and the first 20 or so minutes don't even have dialogue, which I thought was wonderful. (And seems like it would be difficult to pull off.) There are some very good twists and turns, and the acting is terrific. This is a movie that actually is trying to say something and do something different than the norm. We found it mesmerizing and I even cried at the end.
