My Score

Well, this movie won’t make you feel very cheerful. Rather depressed, yes. However, the movie poster gives a distorted impression. You actually expect still a bit of a creepy movie. The girl looks ill-treated and tortured in this picture. But in the end, it’s just a love story, interwoven with a crime in the past with restless souls as a result. Eli met such a restless soul in the guise of Amanda (handsome appearance I must admit) and unravels bit by bit the whole story. And indeed, the end does not cheer you up.

Last Kind Words
Brad Dourif as Waylon, the owner, I found exquisite. The somewhat unworldly strange fellow, balancing between kindness, anxiety and hostility in a teeny weeny bit insane trait. For me, Spencer Daniels played the hardest part … As far as I know, I’ve never seen a movie where someone had to look so sad and dull the whole movie. However, it’s a movie that is worth a look. And that because of the beautiful scenery and the haunting music.

My rating 4/10
