A would-be thriller whose intended horror-tinged chills register as ho-hum hokum.

"The Condemned" is nothing but a creaky façade.

If you like psychological/supernatural thrillers that are relentlessly grim and creepy, this is recommended. Others who like their horror to be at least a little on the fun side may find this just numbing.

You may hopefully think you're watching an art-film pastiche along the witty avant-garde lines of something by the Chilean director Raúl Ruiz.

It adds up to a methodically bland, intellectually sluggish exercise in guilt-tripping that's nonetheless still more interested in its rich and sexy characters than the supposed unfortunates.

A Puerto Rican drama that straddles the line between (tame) horror movie and (marginal) ghost story.

So tame and so completely boring that to call it a horror film is to insult the genre.

Despite a lavish dose of gothic style (and the occasional inspired flourish, as when surveillance monitors are overcome with home movies of dead children), The Condemned's trek toward absolution is pretty familiar.
