Rather odd little BBC production. It wasn't the worst movie I'd ever seen, but it's not the best either.

It doesn't even deserve half a star.. i watched it because it had Pattinson in it and i have to say, it ruined him for me. It had no plot, made no sense, waste of an hour!

i love this movie...i thought it was great and interesting...rob is very good in this and his voice has such a haunting element to it and i felt remorse for his character...the only negative would be the constant smoking throughout the whole thing lol...

Young Robert Pattinson (20) in one of his earlier movies. Clearly was a low budget movie, but I'm glad I watched it. The actress who played his love interest looked waaaaay too old for him.

Wake up critics! This is an old-style Alfred Hitchcock type drama/thriller. It's not horror and it's not meant to be. Overall, the acting is quite good. My main issue is that certain bits needed to be fleshed out more. I think this movie could have benefited from being 15-20 minutes longer. I know that certain things weren't spelled out for you so it wouldn't ruin the twist at the end, but I think Julian's and Rachael's characters needed a little more development. They weren't quite 3 dimensional. I thought Robert's performance was brilliant though. This is REAL acting folks and not just a bunch of CGI junk to make things look pretty and wow the audience! I don't need non-stop action and shiny special effects to enjoy a movie. I do, however, very much like special effects. Especially the way they were done BEFORE CGI back in the late 70's and 80's. People like George Lucas and Steven Spielberg were at the top of their game back then. Spielberg also did a great job with Schindler's List. Again, REAL acting and not special effects dominated that movie.

I thought it was well acted, but the story was rather lame & I didn't really feel like it portrayed the feel of the book (although I suppose that's relative)

Low budget, seen the plot with Nicole Kidman and 'The Others.' In an attempt to relate to the surge that is Pattinson - no surge. An early start to the career however.

It's not at all a good film; it's incoherent, there's about five minutes of actual plot in the entire runtime, and there are long stretches of completely pointless images. However, it's a little fascinating. One thing it definitely achieved was an ominous, choking sense of mood. There were many times I was genuinely disturbed by the weird, disconnected photography, the odd angles, and the harsh editing. The atmosphere was absolutely one of total isolation where you could easily find yourself questioning your sanity and your reality.

Is it worth watching for that? Probably not. Nothing happens and it makes no sense. The cast do deliver characters that feel real solely using physical expression and a handful of lines each (there's about the same amount of dialogue as there is plot, which is to say, almost none), so they are to be commended. Robert Pattinson is also stunning to look at in general (and the camera is rarely off him), so if you're just coming to oogle, you won't be disappointed.

Acting and atmosphere = 5/5 Absolutely everything else 0/5

It is a bizarre movie. I would have liked it better had it been a bit longer. Alot happens in one hour and eight minutes. The ending wasn't what I thought it would be. Loved the bath tub scene and anytime Rob's chest was showing. He did a great job at being a paralized man.

Pre Brooding emo Cullen days, Robert Pattinson stared in a straight to DVD bargain bin burner titled The Haunted Airman where he plays a Brooding Emo Pilot. Don't question the range of this actor, the angst he brings to the Tormented Toby Jugg is quite different than the vampire Drama. Toby Jugg Smokes, A lot!

Toby Jugg is troubled. He is paralyzed by night terrors, fear, paranoia, and a severe spinal injury. If in fact Aracnophobia was the scariest film of all time you will get the creeps from the spider nest of a hospital in which our mental mama's boy resides. Filmed and pasted into this movie from your very own back yard.

The film isn't a complete train wreck, not a train in sight actually. There isn't much of anything to see or talk about. Pattinson is actually quite good when he isn't smoking and keeping things to himself. His portrayl of claustrophobia in wide open spaces is a site to be hold even if the crippling scenes are few and far in between this 80 minute snooze fest.

Why is Toby haunted? That's advertised every 2 minutes from beginning to end. Why should anyone care? Well they say real horror is not knowing right?

according to the internet, The Book in which this viewing is based titled "The Haunting of Toby Jugg" is known for its contraversal lunacy. There in lies the Real Horror, it's out of print. AHHHHHH!

Awful. Only good thing about is Rob!

If Robert Pattinson hadn't been in this movie, I would have shut it off within 15 minutes. And as it turned out, I was sorry I didn't do that anyway. The eye candy is not enough to make up for the fact that this movie really sucks. It's painfully slow-moving, the characters are not likeable at all, and this was just generally a waste of time.
