Despite the meandering pace, and lack of fearsome thrills, After.Life is a chilling fairytale that grabs you and takes you on a strangely hypnotic ride.

takes its ambiguities all the way to the grave - and beyond.

Born again Ricci haunts a mortuary, while perfecting post-mortem freaky in the nude. This may or may not be your cup of embalming fluid, whether intriguing those with unconventional viewing preferences, or seriously creeping you out.

Has some first-timer flaws but avoids 'cheesy horror movie' status by serious tapping into the vein Poe mined for premature burial.

Best of all is Neeson, who is nicely creepy. Whether he's genuinely gifted or knuckle-chewing insane, he's not the kind of guy you'd want to spend time with, either way.

An atmospheric effort curious enough to intrigue both hardcore horror fans and those simply looking for a good thriller.

I have seen my share of cheapie horror flicks that invariably end with the CARNIVAL OF SOULS twist...[Wojtowicz-Vosloo] knows you know this stuff, and offers it up as a possibility right off the bat.

If someone needs to be convinced they're dead, Neeson should make the argument.

... guilt by association ... with Death himself. ... Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo exploits that unease and does it well.

Neeson clearly relishes the role, but he never plays to the cheap seats by going whole-hog psychotic. The character's motivations remain tantalizingly opaque from first frame to last.

Either you'll go with After.Life's conceit or you won't. Even if you do, you're left with more questions about its plausibility than you'll be comfortable with.

Born again Christina Ricci haunts a mortuary, while perfecting post-mortem freaky in the nude. This may or may not be your cup of embalming fluid, in terms of either intriguing those with unconventional viewing preferences, or seriously creeping you out.

A tense, elegant, intelligent thriller that will have audiences debating whether Liam Neeson's character is a serial killer or a kindly mortician.

Thematic rigor mortis sets in long before the final reel.

There is too much reliance on one character's word against another which leads the audience back and forth over the truth.

makes you think too much about what it's doing, rather than what it's about, thus drawing you away from the deeper philosophical questions of life and death at its core

Confusing chiller explores death; too dark for teens.

It dresses up boilerplate horror in a classy shell, yet never gives it the pulse it needs.
