Product Description

Christy (Zehetner) returns to her hometown years after a car accident that disfigured her older sister. Haunted by the accident in which she was the driver, she learns that her worst nightmares have either come true ... or are about to.

Amazon.com

MTV Films makes a foray into the teen-oriented horror market with Beneath, an unremarkable but certainly not unlikable chiller about a young woman (Nora Zehetner from Heroes and Everwood) plagued by nightmares about her deceased sister. Said sibling (Carly Pope) perished years before in a fiery car wreck (caused in part by Zehetner's character), but constant visions of hands scratching at a coffin lid have the younger woman convinced otherwise. With the help of Pope's daughter, Zehetner investigates the truth behind her sister's death, which may lie at the heart of her husband's creepy, labyrinthine mansion. Veteran horror fans won't find anything new in first-time director Dagen Merrill's blend of haunted house scares and premonition thrills, but younger viewers will undoubtedly find Beneath suitably spooky at their next get-together (parents should know that the R rating is somewhat inflated and applies only to some mild violence and disturbing images). The DVD is widescreen and offers only previews for other Paramount titles as a supplemental feature. -- Paul Gaita

3.0 out of 5 stars It was a'right September 6, 2007
Format:DVD
A depressed young woman who has visions about an accident which eventually caused the death of her older sister returns home to visit her creepy brother-in-law and niece. While there, the niece's grandmother dies and she has a vision right before it happens. The niece confides that there is something 'inside the walls' which is responsible. Some kind of monster. During the course of the investigation, she discovers the house used to be an escape route for local minors and the house is riddled with mysterious hatches and bolt holes.

Initially I found this film suspenseful. But I grew bored waiting for the big reveal. The grandmother, and child, were excessively creepy, and I think it would've been more interesting if the characters were more normal even likeable. The house itself was interesting, but it was never explained why the miners felt the need to make *a house* into an escape hatch for the mines. It would make more sense if the house was part of the Underground Railway or something. Also the house was very dark and drab and in an obvious bid to make it look scary, I think they went to far. It was difficult for me to believe anyone would want to live there.

Overall, this was an okay film. If you like the type of film where no one believes the central character isn't crazy until the very end, this one is for you. I found myself unsatisfied with the ending and impatient towards the end for things to happen. The final scene rang hollow and was anti-climatic.

3 stars. Not the worst horror I've seen but not all that great either.

3.0 out of 5 stars WHAT DOESN'T LIE BENEATH... October 20, 2007
Format:DVD
....is a coherent script. Even with that in mind, BENEATH, an MTV co-production with Paramount, holds your interest with a modicum of shrieks. HEROES' Nora Zehetner plays Christie, a young girl traumatized by the death of her sister, in an accident in which she was the driver. Although she survived the crash, Vanessa was burned severely and dies a year later. When people close to Vanessa start dying, Christie is convinced there's more to Vanessa's death than meets the eye.
One major problem I found is Christie's "visions" and her drawings of things and people she doesn't know...there is no real explanation for them, and when the script force feeds a reason, it doesn't make sense. Zehetner is good, as is Matthew Settle as her brother in law. Not bad, but no classic either.

3.0 out of 5 stars sigh September 15, 2007
Format:DVD
You know what would be great? How about an original idea instead of just rehashing the same old plots over and over again. How many times do we have to suffer through somebody dying or being injured in a car accident or a fire (here it was both) then watch the tortured survivor friend or relative deal with it later in life? This movie wasn't terrible, but there was absolutely nothing new in it anywhere that hasn't been done in dozens of other movies. There were pictures drawn of visions someone had (boy, that's original), a little kid viewing all the happenings (only for the hundreth time I think) and of course the cover up of the plot that gives us the same old twist at the end. A real twist would be that there is no twist at the end. I gave it 3 stars because the acting wasn't bad and had it been one of the first 10 or so movies I'd seen with this same theme I probably would have liked it more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good! January 31, 2008
By Mali
Format:DVD
Don't let he MTV logo on the box affect your decision to see this! I was surprised to see that there is a solid story here, characters with personalities, some great acting, and no cheesy nudity. A girl returns to the town she grew up in after a number of years away to attend a funeral. She had been sent away after her sister's funeral with a brother-in-law and niece as her onlt family left. She starts to have blackouts, visions through sketches, and people begin to die. It even has some dark and creepy elements. I recommend this and I would watch it again, even own it.
There is nothing "MTV" about this movie! :)

Slow burn, eerie, atmospheric mystery/thriller. Excellent acting by the lead actress really made this film stand out. Recommend.
