Since the movie's sensibility ranges from the preposterous to the absurd, there are few genuine frights.
A sturdy, well-made piece that never quite overcomes its structural flaws.
It has pace and variety and, best of all, it consistently has the courage of its imaginative and daring screenplay.
Describing what's bad about this movie is like describing what's orange about an orange, but suffice it to say that the best performance is given by a crucified raccoon.
Alternately tense and cheesy, Suspended Animation returns its director, John Hancock, to the blood-soaked turf he spaded 30 years ago with his ageless nail-biter Let's Scare Jessica to Death.
O roteiro surpreende ao fugir do convencional e trocar o suspense pelo drama, oferecendo, no processo, ótimas atuações (especialmente de Esterman).
Think Let's Scare Jessica to Death by way of Misery. "Twin Peaks" fans will want to pass.
Somewhere between a nighttime soap opera and an EC Horror comic book...
Not great but mildly absorbing, Suspended Animation suffices for an evening's entertainment.
The film is like vomiting and then expecting your shoes to come out of your mouth. Neither is a pleasant experience, but on some level it has to be seen to be believed.
If the third-act denoument is predictable, the film has already delivered more twists than the average genre picture.
Although overlong, the picture has a fair measure of jolts and surprises.
