Stars : 4  /  10

It begins well, the story promises "different", it offers up some atmosphere, and then it slowly dissolves into yawnish clichés and predictable climaxes.  Not completely awful, but certainly not a film I care to watch again.

Some fine cinematogrphy, and Moore's acting, as per usual, is top-notch. However, there's not one single scare in the whole 112 min. Tsk-tsk. 

The score was decent, even good at times, except for the  the "fog horn" type sound at key dramatic moments... seriously wtf was that?!

I also found the blatant anti-athiest propaganda towards the end of the film to be personally off-putting. Even durring the closing credits, "God" is the first on "the producers wish to thank" list. Everyone's entitled to a personal opinion... and aparently mine is to gag a little.
