The Disappeared Reviews
- This movie was so predictable it killed most of the suspense. The conversation the main character has with the priest at night is a dead give-away of the identity of the child's murderer. And any viewer should be able to figure out Amy is a ghost pretty early on, before the movie points out the obvious.
- Not enough good set-ups for the scares, or the scares simply weren't 'scary' enough.
- Some of the concepts involved were very simplistic and/or clichÃ (C).
- Terrible CGI.
- Stupid or nonsensical character behavior. For example, the family that decided to get burned to death in a fire instead of risking a run. Or people trying to convince a mentally unstable person that what only they can see may be due to ghosts or paranormal activity rather than actual delusions (even if the former is true in the film).
- A relatively convincing lead actor. He did pretty well portraying a mentally unstable teenager, for the most part.
- A few (albeit not enough) disturbing moments. The first one was probably the best: the main character's brother's voice calling out from somewhere in the room whenever a certain part in the videotape was watched. The journey through the catacombs was also not too bad. The rest was awful - either not set up properly, or more likely, just not scary enough!
Overall, the film was neither good nor good enough of an effort to warrant a recommendation from me.
