Critic Reviews for Half Light

All Critics (8) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (6)

  • Plenty of stringy wind-swept hair and shapeless woolly jumpers abound, and at least there's picturesque scenery for a slow afternoon's viewing.

    November 7, 2012 | Rating: 2/5
  • More televisual than cinematic, Half Light is too chocolate boxy and clean to be completely convincing, but it's a diverting enough story.

  • if you strip away all the references to other films, and all the play on genres, what remains is a film without its own soul, as insubstantial, and as difficult to credit, as a spectre half-glimpsed through the Scottish mist.

  • Demi Moore is used to the odd supernatural love story (Ghost, 1990) and she works hard at Rachel, but the screenplay just isn't up to the genre. It's not super, it's not that natural and it's not very thrilling ... the end result is not even half right.

    July 13, 2006 | Full Review…
  • There's a pleasingly Hitchcockian feel to this entertainingly old-fashioned thriller and writer-director Craig Rosenberg pulls off several impressive twists so that you're never quite sure just where the story's going.

    Though initially aggravating, Half Light improves as it goes on. It never becomes "Good" but it is far from unwatchable.

    I felt like this movie didn't know what it wanted to be...a horror flick, a thriller, a romance, a lifetime movie....it didn't do much for me.

    Lame and tame ghost thriller. Average acting, honestly can't even be bothered to review it, it was that meh.
