The film has technical chops but tries to tell too many stories at once. Part scifi, part ghost story, part mystery Silk does each element alright but never combines them well enough to make the film as a whole more than adequate. Had they removed the scifi elements of the film and concentrated on the ghost story and mystery, while it would have probably seemed a little formulaic, it would have worked much better. As well, had they concentrated on the scifi and ghost story and left out the mystery, it could have worked as a decent straight up monster flick. Sometimes more does not mean better and this is clearly the case with Silk.
