They Keep Getting Better
Is the paranormal/ghost thriller a genre that has found a sucess formula in building on the pluses of the previous version? There are well placed clues to what's going on spaced throughout the film. The actors all deliver their parts with plenty of emotion (a must to set mood in the genre). Anyone would have to be really inept NOT to win our appreciation with Halle Berry and Penelope Cruz in the production supported by the well talented likes of Downey, Dutton and Lynch. The only drawback is that to set mood, that newly discovered and now overused blue filtering of the light to set the mood is often distracting yet even this is somewhat saved by brilliant camerawork. The DVD Bonus contains insightful observations by the director and cinematographer.
