This movie is a good ghost story with a twist.

I liked this movie. It's rather a quiet movie, but it has a good story. It's a good message, in the end of sin and redemption. It really illustrates how we let ourselves be haunted and tortured by our own pasts. It's not really a horror movie, but a story that looks at a dark subject and its long-term effects. I like how the story unfolded, so that it left you wondering who was who and had some surprising twists and turns.
It could have easily fallen into boring cliches, but managed to avoid that, while revealing more and more about the different characters in the movie. I realize the message of the movie is not for everyone, but I found it refreshing to see a movie that reflects some of my own values, and it does so in a quiet way, not banging you over the head with them. This movie is a rarity; a movie with a Christian view that isn't sugary and dumb. All in all, I highly recommended this movie.

Not exactly what I expected. But it was a very pleasant surprise. let me start by saying no matter what the content of this movie, I would have loved it alone for the scenery. But then I love everything about the state of Oregon. That being said, I loved the switch from the "normal typical" ghost story and the religious theme was well played. It was played well enough that my best friend missed it all together until pointed out. A refreshing break from the recycled haunted house tales and slasher blood and gore flix we seemed to be flooded with nowadays.

Normally I don't watch scary movies but this one was different because it really explains how Satan tries to affect our everyday lives, and how good he is at it.

Not the typical "ghost" story. I thought it was well shot, well directed, and the actors were very believable. I can say that because it was easy to lose myself in the story.

The movie starts out showing us a boring, mostly mute ghost. One that stands around and stares. In a northern isolated cabin, Mira Sorvino returns to her family cabin where she used to spend her summers as a child. The ghost seems to tolerate her presence, but weird things happen such as doors closing by themselves and the Victrola playing by itself. The film moves slow...as does the ghost. The cabin has no electricity, and after a few days, she still has cell phone reception. Where is the tower? What kind of battery does she have? Hey! I want one of those!

Anyway, her slightly jerky boyfriend (Justin Kirk) shows up and wouldn't you know it, the male ghost has testosterone issues or so it seems. Creepy huh. Things start to happen to him. The film moves slow and just about when you think nothing will happen, Bam! it does. First slowly, then more dramatic things happen as the film progresses. The boyfriend turns out to be less jerky than he was at first and is the picture of understanding while the serene Mira is somewhat psychotic...or is it the ghost? or a demon from her past?

We soon discover this is more than a simple ghost haunting...

The film is done in a way you can feel the tension between the characters, the influence of the ghost, and the frustration of the boyfriend. The movie has an existential Christian theme to it, but shies away from stating any specific names that pin it to Christianity.

No sex or nudity.

This is a wonderful story about forgiveness and redemption. If you can just watch and enjoy as it gently unfolds itself at the end, you will find it a beautiful story and a lesson about healing.

I really enjoy ghost stories without violence, and this was made to order for me. The age old story of good against evil comes into play in this film and I found it thought provoking. I would like to see this genre again, especially the 'creepiness' of just seeing a pale entity standing in a corner, or looking through the windows. Thank goodness there was no sudden violence inserted just to make you jump.

I still am not sure who the shrouded figure was in the boat, however. I'll have to watch it more than once!
