Josh Bell
Las Vegas Weekly

A B-level thriller with giant plot holes and lazy direction that pretends it's a real movie by casting A-list stars and getting a foreign art-house director to helm it.

A mystery wrapped in an enigma -- an enigma that isn't nearly as clever as the screenwriter seems to think it is.

There's nothing worse than watching an involving motion picture collapse into rubble before your eyes, and that's exactly what happens here.

Begins as a promisingly creepy thriller but then falls apart.

Grisly, disturbing, extremely violent horror film.

I'm an Oscar-winning actress. I believe I'll get better roles than this someday. I don't believe I'll stick with my agent.

Penelope Cruz whispers her explicit confessions with the droning delivery of a phone-sex worker on her third hour of overtime.

An ceaseless stream of Fake Scares, Dream Sequences, and Shrieking Halles.

You are more likely to be amused than scared by these sorts of foolishness.

Although it tries valiantly, Hollywood's latest horror film is nowhere near as scary as the pitch meeting that is likely responsible for its existence.

Succeeds in making every plot twist more unbelievable and irrational than the last.

In the end, the more lurid the explanations are, the more ludicrous they are, too. It's silly stuff, but I suppose it's fine as far as it goes.

I would like to call out a moratorium on the use of young, wet girls looking through the tops of their eyes with hair in their face, as ghouls. What is up with this trend?

How anyone in the cast manages to keep a straight face is one of the film's innumerable mysteries.
