Now, Jess must find a way to save her family and win

Most people have probably heard of the idea that babies and young children can see and hear things that older people can't, or have lost the ability to. That a baby in a crib gurgling and laughing at the ceiling, for example, is actually talking to a spirit there. It's a fascinating premise, whose application to a horror movie is a stroke of genius.

In "The Messengers" a family moves into an old farmhouse where something very bad once happened. Only Ben, the little toddler of the family, can see the supernatural prescences in the house, and he appears more delighted with them than afraid. When his teenage sister Jess also starts encountering unusual occurences - this time of an apparantly non-benevolent nature - she also begins noticing Ben's unusual behavior as well and realizes that he too is experiencing something out of the ordinary; the hard part after that is getting anybody else to take her seriously. The movie utilizes much more atmosphere than action, and the cast has to carry off a lot the show by reacting to very subtle (Most of the time), slow-paced, occurences, in a way that makes it feel real and frightening. The actors and actresses were well picked for their parts, and Kristen Stewart as Jess and twins Evan and Theodore Turner as Ben, playing the characters who experience most of the strangeness in the movie's early, slower-going, parts, are especially impressive. All the production values necessary to make this kind of atmosphere work - the light and shadows, the subtle use of sounds, the camerawork, etc. - are all handled very well too.

In the last one third or so of the movie, as things start to speed up and secrets come to light, I guess you could say that there were too broad directions it could have gone in, that it had to choose from.

I saw this movie yesterday at the movies. I thought it was going to be really scary, but it wasn't too bad. There are just some parts that sort of sneek up on you, and may scare you a little, or a lot. It made me jump at those parts at least 10 times,I would guess. This movie did not leave me scared after and I did not have nightmares or anything like that. It just scared me while I was watching it. When the camera gets upi close with the "messengers", That is one part that always made me jump, and it gave me a case of the chills!!!! I know that it is rated pg-13, but I am 13 and I think that if a kid was mature, they could probably watch it at 11 years, unless they get scared easily. I would reccomend this to anyone 12 and over who does not scare easily. I loved this movie, and I'm getting it on DVD when it comes out!!!!!

I don't expect a lot from ghost stories, but I do expect a story to make a bit of sense! Is that asking too much from the screenwriters and filmmakers? When the bad guy, all the sudden, becomes a homicidal maniac solely because a bunch of crows, out of the blue, start pecking him, then I have a problem spending $9.00 for a ticket! Alfred Hitchcock would be spinning in his grave. Didn't anyone learn anything in their college Film 101 class? A good movie has at its roots an INTERESTING story!

Here are some of the ridiculous messages in The Messengers: If you have desperate financial problems move from Chicago to the middle of no-where in North Dakota to grow Sunflowers (I kid you not!). If your toddler has serious neurological problems from a car accident move away from some of the best hospitals and speech therapists in the country to an isolated small town, which, at best, has a community hospital. Hire a drifter to live & work with you, out of the blue, without checking any references, when you have a teenage vixen daughter, a wife and toddler. ( I'm glad they're not my parents!)

A town where everyone knows everything would have no problem missing a triple homicide, just outside of town. And, of course, blame the man's lunacy on a bad crop of Sunflowers! (Doesn't anything else grow in North Dakota?) A couple of days after you buy your rundown house - with huge vines growing everywhere - that it reminds you of Jack and the Beanstalk, a guy from the X-Files, ala Smoking Man, (I'm glad to see the cigarettes didn't get him, I guess he doesn't inhale!) will just suddenly sneak up on you while you're working to offer you the sale price of your home, plus 15% more, for absolutely no reason!

I think you get the picture.

Format: DVD
this movie had it all, the creepy ghosts, the wicked house,the isolation, the evil guy, and the innocent family. it was almost perfect. just enough to spook you, and know that things like this really happen. you know a traumatic experience, bad guy forgets, family not knowing what they're walking into, the ghost calling out for help, and the little boy who sees everything. it's a good mix and these guys did their thing. the house and the ghosts would just keep on reliving the horror that went on there for all time, or until somebody came around to help. he did the deed and he got his too. you can't get away with these kinds of things because they always come back to haunt you literally. killer movie, great effects, nice ghosts.
