Movie Info

A writer with a career in decline arrives in a small town as part of his book tour and gets caught up in a murder mystery involving a young girl. That night in a dream, he is approached by a mysterious young ghost named V. He's unsure of her connection to the murder in the town, but is grateful for the story being handed to him. Ultimately he is led to the truth of the story, surprised to find that the ending has more to do with his own life than he could ever have anticipated. -- (C) Official Site

    Not sure it entirely works, but I loved the dream sequences and Elle Fanning in this. The ending was flat and I hoped for more, but this kept me entertained and was creepy mostly, so no real complaints.

    On his not quite standing room book signing tour, Hall Baltimore(Val Kilmer) comes across a town that is so small that it does not have a bookstore but does have a giant clock with seven faces. So, while signing books in a hardware store, he encounters an actual fan, Sheriff Bobby LaGrange(Bruce Dern) who shows him the latest body in the morgue. But what Hall is even more interested in is a drink, being drawn to a bar where Edgar Allan Poe(Ben Chaplin) used to hang out. To be honest, "Twixt" does not really work as horror, mystery or personal filmmaking, as Francis Ford Coppola takes a step back artistically in his late period. But that's not to say there is nothing of interest here, as there is just enough eccentricity and weirdness to at least merit a look.

    Its got all of the elements to make a successful quirky, horror comedy but Coppola never really brings it all home. I think if more of the film was like the Poe dream sequences (interesting writing and a unique visual style), I would have liked this more.

    Francis, I admire you very much, but this movie sucks.
