The female characters are either preposterous or pathetic.

Williams (...) toma decisiones extrañas que no hacen crecer la película en términos dramáticos.

Another entry in the fallout-from-grief genre, but it subscribes too readily to the theory that tragedy automatically equals importance.

The audience may feel like taking a shower, just to wash this creepy movie away

The material is slim and becomes slimmer still by our advance grasp of it; what's meant to be novelistic in detail instead comes to seem belabored. Not a bad film. A misfire.

Awash in lame symbolism, proud to pimp its salt-air locations and comely actors, and equipped with exactly zero governing notions of human behavior.

Well-composed as it is, The Door in the Floor is far too precious to evoke much more than a distanced, aesthetic appreciation.

In many ways, despite its adult sheen, it's as foolish as any other disposable summer film.

I can't say I minded the movie too much, but I can't say it ever grabbed me, which is how I feel about every other movie adapted from an Irving novel.

You've heard of straight-to-video, but how about straight to the trash can?
