My reaction
Synopsis: a woman driven to suicide haunts her scheming husband
How I saw it: on video, today (have on DVD)
Concept: Bad.
Story: Bad.
Characters: Terrible.
Dialog: Bad.
Pacing: Terrible.
Cinematography: Terrible.
Special effects/design: Bad.
Acting: Bad.
Music: Indifferent.
Subjective Rating: 2/10 (Terrible). Every now and then somebody will turn on a light switch; these are the most exciting moments in the movie, as they sometimes come with hints at what the vague sense of movement in the darkness that we’ve been watching for the last five minutes was all about.
Objective Rating: 0.7/4 (Very bad).
