IMDB rate: 5,6
I bought this movie a very long time ago, and I hadn't watched it yet because it didn't seem very interesting. But hey, can't leave it here dusting forever!
The movie starts with Marnie (Famke Janssen) coming home after three years of being in jail for murdering her abusive husband, Mike. She needs to stay at home for a year and can't leave the house because of a electronic ankle bracelet. Because of the ankle bracelet you know that there are going to happen things inside the house which she can't run for because the cops will be called and stuff.
At first the movie seemed to be good because there was a really good 'shock' in one scene and well, I don't get scared easily, but this frightened me for a few seconds. Because of this, I got fascinated by the movie and kept hoping for improvement, but that just terribly failed.
You see, Mike, the abusive husband came back as a ghost, a very angry, even more abusive ex-husband ghost. However the first shock-scene was good, the others where terrible. The ghost looks very lame, one time he is invisible, the other time he is a weird glowing.. thing. He just starts punching around people and making the walls all dirty and stuff, really inappropriate ;).
Ed Westwick also has a part in this movie as a grocery-delivering friend of Marnie, and it's funny to see how young he was in this movie. However, I am not a fan of his acting performance, he also seems to be too 'dark' or something. I don't know how to explain it. Famke Janssen is in my opinion a good actress, and she also acted very well in this movie.
Overall, this movie sucked. Apart from the good acting of Famke Janssen, and the one scary scene, it was just rubbish. The script was too predictable and lame. Famke Janssen was a bit too 'natural' about the fact that her dead husband is punching her around the room and throwing her of the stairs, which is of course, not very believable.
My personal rate: 4,5/10
