Built from spare parts left over by American remakes of Japanese copies of "Ringu", "The Return" is at least two steps removed from the first generation copy.

A bland affair with a few clever twists here and there.

Too polished to be truly creepy, The Return has more than enough atmosphere to keep you watching - but nowhere near enough mystery.

The Return is a slow burn that's often way too slow, feeling stretched to meet a running time that's still under 90 minutes.
March 12, 2007
a low point in the on-going battle to scare U.S. teens from their allowances
March 1, 2007
Austerely directed but shamelessly dry, uneventful and derivative.

[The Return] isn't creepy enough to really work properly and there's an over-reliance on sudden soundtrack noises in place of actual scares.

It proves what many people have been suspecting for a while now: SMG is a scream queen for audiences who don't like horror movies.

She gulps a hell of a lot, her cardigan sleeves are pulled down over her hands and her forehead's slightly furrowed (not too much, mind, it could make her look old). It can only mean one thing: Sarah Michelle Gellar is acting.

A large step backwards for a promising director and far from the return we'd been hoping for.

...merely a good ending in search of a proper build-up.

[The Return is] more haunting than it has any right to be, thanks to its love of long, lonesome highways and the way the violence of the past bleeds into the present.

Why is Sam Shepard in this movie?
November 15, 2006
Mellow -- nay, snoozy -- atmospherics trump actual scares, and it makes almost zero sense.
November 14, 2006
"The Return" is a slow-going ghost story that takes a long time to say "Boo!"
November 14, 2006
A film so formless and pointless that you may find yourself wondering who the target audience was supposed to be.
