Ennui sets in early in Don't Go, making you wish it would.
It falls on the performances to add subtle touches to the narrative's broad strokes. George is admirably warm as the earthbound Hazel, and Dorff suggests the selfishness of his character's selfless desperation.
This picture needs less moping and more spooking.
Effective atmospherics don't fully compensate for the sluggish storytelling.
At times challenging, at times heartbreaking, this film isn't always gripping, but when gutted there's a viable heart.
Gleeson's creation of the environment's tone through the visual, Don't Go builds a fascinating narrative which keeps you on edge right up until the final credits roll.
Steeped in Hitchcockian tones with just a dash of supernatural sci-fi, the film moves well and is buttressed by consistent performances across the board.
Don't Go has promise to be a great thriller, but it lacks the speed, passion and the suspenseful drama any film like this truly requires.
With mediocre performances and style, but a whole other screenplay's worth of content to grapple with unfolded in its... final act, Gleeson's film is a sea of ideas with only a lifejacket keeping it afloat.
Strong performances by Stephen Dorff and Melissa George plus a haunting script make this a hunt out and see movie.
Opting more for mystery and suspense than horror, the film takes too deliberate a path and leaves too much unsaid. That can be compelling when done in the service of a more powerful narrative, but too often here the story is just rudderless.
Despite some haunting imagery and committed portrayals, the film never establishes an emotional foothold before detaching itself completely with a series of arbitrary plot twists.
