With What Lies Beneath, Zemeckis finally combines his fondness for fright flicks with the character-driven drama of his best work, and the result is one doozy of a ghost story.
| Original Score: 4/5
Cross between Fatal Attraction, Poltergeist.
| Original Score: 2/5
It's just gimmick all the way.
They could've cut 10 minutes out of the first hour easily...and it still might have been too slow.
| Original Score: 5/10
If the ghost can go hunt for the villain by itself, why does it bother writing cryptic messages to strangers?
| Original Score: C-
Offers nothing original.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
unarguably Pfeiffer's showcase: She's in almost every scene and she turns in captivating work under the direction of Robert Zemeckis, a filmmaker who knows how to show his audience a very good time.
Considerando-se o talento dos protagonistas do projeto, é impossível não pensar que o resultado poderia ter sido muito melhor.
| Original Score: 3/5
Most of the boo moments are obvious a mile off, which makes it hard to be properly frightened, or even startled.
| Original Score: D+
The only flaw in What Lies Beneath is that the artists involved are clearly swinging for the fences. The best they can manage here is a ground rule double.
| Original Score: B
Pfeiffer almost single-handedly lifts the picture above mediocrity.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
I'll take this genuine, if not terribly original, creepiness over the latest self-conscious teen slasher flick any day of the week.
| Original Score: 71/100
Is there anybody out there seriously interested in seeing Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer doing the nasty?
This film is an unexpectedly adult emotional rollercoaster.
Zemeckis keeps things taut for edge-of-your-seat excitement until all is dead and done.
What lies beneath What Lies Beneath are the good bones of Alfred Hitchcock.
What really lies beneath all this nonsense is a superb support cast.
Something of a "guilty pleasure" simply due to the fun house type thrills it offers, What Lies Beneath isn't great, but it's good enough.
A decent popcorn movie for adults, but not much lies beneath
| Original Score: B-
Vewers may find themselves riveted.
| Original Score: 6/10
