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 really scary, although there are some nice creepy visuals here and there.

The Godfather it's not, but this had more vigor and immediacy than either Youth Against Youth or Tetro.

Easily [Coppola's] silliest work ever.

É lamentável que estas experiências estéticas e narrativas estejam se revelando dignas de um adolescente que não só está segurando uma câmera pela primeira vez como ainda sabe pouquíssimo sobre os gêneros nos quais tenta investir.

'Twixt' is not unwatchable, but it comes close.

Sometimes it's fascinating, but just as often, it's frustrating: It's a film without a net, and it tends to land with a thud.

Audience Reviews for Twixt

It is painful to see Coppola indulge himself with this personal nonsense, an incoherent mess that doesn't know if it wants to be an unscary Gothic horror story, an overstylized nightmare or an unfunny comedy. It is only bland, pointless and, even worse, sleep-inducing.

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.

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