Format:DVD
Actually, the DVD cover is not accurate, as if telling she is the heroine of the film. It is not. So if you want to see her, remember that the time alloted to her is not very long, and she looks like strayed into this film by accident (because her role requires little to do, virtually nothing but playing herself). And as to her acting, I do not say anything, for her role (Jo, that's the name) is not a big one. Whether or not she can really do something, I cannot be sure.

Well, but I can say for certain that the film itself is plain awful. The young boys and girls travel all the way to a country house in Scotland, where they celebrate the 21st birthday of one member. But because of the supernatual existence, they start to get killed one after another, while they are all confined in the mansion surrounded by the wilderness. And it is winter. And it starts snowing. And the telephone is dead. And ...

You have seen this type of situaion many times before. The awfully contrived story includes one of the silliest ways of breaking the (last) comminication with the outside world -- I mean, the characters really (yes, really) manages to crush the cellphone with ... er ... a bed. (See how it happens, and laugh.) And the photography is so poor that you cannot see clearly the 'terrible' things which the terrified boys are referring to.

The film's central character is not played by Paris Hilton; it is by Amelia Warner, who previously appeared in two pretty good films -- 'Quills' and TV's 'Lorna Doone.' Now whatever she had achieved in there should be cancelled out because of the awful acting she gives here. I don't like saying this, but to me at least it was very painful to see her character lacking any emotions that the film requires. Perhaps the film is to be blamed. Perhaps not. See it for yourself.

Total failure, and that's all I can say. In a sense, Ms. Hilton was very lucky to be in the film for a shorter time.

1.0 out of 5 stars The horror movie that bores you to death October 31, 2004
Format:DVD
If you want to rent this movie because Paris Hilton is on the box, please be a 12-14 year old. Otherwise, start immediately exploring ways to be more interesting to other people. But I digress...as stated in other reviews, she will provide no real excitement-no more than seeing her on the cover of the Enquirer. She's killed of for good early n, and the rest are killed one by one by some ghost, which the heroine lectures on endlessly, her non-stop droning will grate on your nerves for sure. That's pretty much it. Oh, and they're out in the middle of nowhere with no phone. Boring.

2.0 out of 5 stars SlOW AND BORING June 28, 2004
Format:DVD
I'm guessing that nine Lives was made prior to Paris Hilton's TV show and sex scandal and was released to take advantage of her recent fame. Even though she gets top billing, she is the first character to get killed in about the first 20 minutes.
The story, such that there is of it, concerns 9 friends getting together at a Scottish mansion far off the beaten path. kind of a 20's "Big Chill" gathering.
For the first 20 minutes or so they just sit around blah-blahing about their school days. One of them finds a book hidden in a hole in the wall. He begins to read it and then suddenly the pages all read "I have returned!" ohhhh...really spooky!
(...)
When he gets killed, the ghost jumps to the body of the person who killed him/her and the killing begins again.
The story is part ghost story and part slasher film and does neither one all that well. Of course the friends split up to find the killer making them fair game to get killed off easily.
It's not particularly scary and certainly not enough gore or inventive ways to kill to satisfy splatter fans. It's really quite dull with all the usual trappings: stuck in an old house.,..story prevents you from leaving, power and phone lines are out, cell phones don't get a signal...yadda yadda...
The people are so dull and so uninteresting that you're really hoping they all die.
And of course there is NO explanation as to just who Murray is, and why he "returned" to kill off these people. Oh. they throw in some half-hearted explanation but much is still unanswered.
Avoid this one, even if it does have Paris Hilton

2.0 out of 5 stars Honestly.... this is just plain awful July 22, 2004
Format:DVD
I don't even know where to begin with this. If you are a Paris Hilton nut, then you will buy this no matter what I say, so what's the point? Well, let's just say you deserve fair warning. Paris Hilton does look good in this movie, well the first half anyway, she's the first to die. OK, you get to see her in a couple of slinky tight dresses, and a white tank top without a bra. Let's just say for that scene they had the AC turned up. You don't even get to see her die. One scene she's talking to a door, then for a split second you see a hand come through a glass window. Cut to a few scenes later and she's lying face down with a stomach wound. That's it.

The plot is thin to say the least, part Clue, part Evil Dead. A bunch of kids are in a house celebrating a 21st birthday of their friend. One of them discovers an ancient book about some dude who was tortured and had his eyes removed. So now he has 'returned'. He possesses one body at a time as he goes around killing one by one. Finally there is a lone survivor. I won't give it away, but he (or she!) finds out the diabolical spectre's secret and why he (or she) was allowed to live. Lame.

If anything else can be said, the character Laura is espescially aggravating. Her inane dialouge was written by a third rate script hack who didn't proofread or revise. This movie sucks on so many levels you'll find yourself giving it away after one viewing (that's if you finish it). Don't watch it late at night after a hard day's work, you'll fall asleep, guarenteed.
