Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Though often visually arresting, Twixt is a deeply eccentric attempt by writer-director Francis Ford Coppola to spin a supernatural story with arthouse intentions. Val Kilmer is top-billed as a faded horror author whose book-signing excursion to a strange small town pulls him into the orbit of a boorish small-town sheriff (Bruce Dern) with his own literary intentions--specifically, a novel based on a string of unsolved child murders, with the victims buried under a local hotel that once gave refuge to Edgar Allan Poe. Kilmer's investigation ping-pongs between his dreary reality, filled with squabbles with his ex-wife (Kilmer's real-life ex, Joanne Whalley) and oceans of booze, and vivid visions of a mystery girl (Elle Fanning) and the death of his own daughter (echoing the loss of Coppola's own son, Gio, who is credited as "creative associate"). Though the trappings of a chilly spook show are evident around the edges of Twixt, and the picture looks sumptuous thanks to Mihai Malaimare Jr. (The Master), it lapses too frequently into baffling bits of camp, most notably the appearance of Ben Chaplin as an addled Poe, a dreadfully silly biker gang that seems pulled from an Eisenhower-era effort by Coppola's former employer, Roger Corman, and Kilmer poking sour fun at his own past by imitating Brando and evoking Jim Morrison. Though early word of Twixt, which saw Coppola reworking the picture in real time according to the reaction of preview audiences, was intriguing, the final product is neither odd enough to court a cult audience nor ambitious or interesting enough to appease fans of the filmmaker or the genre. The Blu-ray includes a making-of documentary directed by Coppola's granddaughter, Gia, which reveals the film's origin--a nightmare spawned by a rowdy evening in Istanbul. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

Val Kilmer and Elle Fanning star in this terrifying horror film written and directed by Academy Awardr Winner Francis Ford Coppola.* Kilmer plays Hall Baltimore, a writer on a book tour who uncovers a disturbing murder that could be source material for his next novel. But as Hall investigates the killing, he finds himself confronted by chilling nightmares, including the ghost of a young girl (Fanning). As he uncovers more horrifying revelations, Hall will discover that the story has more to do with his own life than he could ever have imagined.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing Gothic Visuals. July 20, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I love all kinds of movies from all genres whether they are mainstream released or independent distributed. A good movie is a good movie. Out of all the genres, I have always enjoyed a good horror movie. But even more, I enjoy mysterious Gothic horror movies!

I read the negative reviews and expected to hate the movie. But I ended up enjoying it! This movie is, like many reviewers have stated, very different from Francis Ford Coppolas previous works. Mr. Coppola has directed some of the greatest films ever made and many were destroying this film because it wasn't like the rest of his filmography. This happens to be one of the best Horror films in recent memory. I can see why this wasn't released nationwide in theaters because of it's independent art house feel. But I still thought this was better than a lot of the Horror movies that were graced with a nationwide theater count. The look of the film doesn't look like a typical horror movie in theaters, but it also doesn't look like direct-to-video quality. This is a great ghost, murder mystery movie with mesmerizing Gothic visuals. It almost had a 90s feel. The vibe of the film with its small town eerie setting reminded me of the John Carpenter classic "In the Mouth of Madness" at times. The acting is decent. Val Kimmer is okay as the lead and Elle Fanning is showing that she has more acting capabilities than her sister Dakotah. The make-up effects for the ghostly character V and others were simple yet haunting and clever. The cinematography is nicely done. One other memorable aspect of the film was the eerie soundtrack. It is beautiful and creepy at the same time which helps with the tone of the film. This movie as a whole reminded me of an R rated Goosebumps movie. I mean that in a good way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to define, but very fun June 26, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie has as many faces as the clock tower, so it is not easily defined. An homage to 80's grindhouse as much as it is an old fashioned thriller, as much as it is a comedy, as much as it is a noir. This movie is going to be hard to pin down and define for everyone. It is certainly a horror story in some sense, but somehow more than that. It has a little bit of everything, even an appearance of Edgar Allen Poe! Watch with the same enthusiasm and open mind that you would a movie with Bruce Campbell directed by Sam Raimi, and you wont be disappointed. I laughed, I was scared, and I enjoyed the imagery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dream-like September 10, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A movie inspired by a dream Coppola had in Istanbul, the movie is atmospheric rather than frightening and not particularly gory. If you like the recent movies of Coppola like Tetro and Youth without Youth, you will like this one. If you're looking for Apocalyse Now or The Godfather, you will be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A SINGLE WORD IS THE BEST REFRAIN August 22, 2013
Format:DVD
***Slight plot spoiler review as I explain what I think is going on, but not the ending***

Attempting to come to terms with the death of his daughter, a down on his luck horror author finds himself in the small town of Swan Valley, one that has its own haunted tale. The film uses human parallels to create a story.

Hall Baltimore (Val Kilmer) is convinced by Sheriff Bobby LaGrange (Bruce Dern) to stay in town and collaborate on a book he is working on. The town has a bell tower with 7 clocks all with a different time to illustrate the timelessness of tales. As Baltimore dreams he sees the crime of children being murdered as shown to him by Edgar Allen Poe (Ben Chaplin) his writer alter ego. There is the mysterious V, or Virginia (Elle Fanning) the vampire who represents his own daughter Vicky. We see this symbolism as he attempts to write the tale confusing Vicky with Virginia and as he talks to Poe, who is sometimes not there.

It is an interesting tale that is filled with mystery and light on the vampire and horror part. I think the film would had been better with the "1408" John Cusack in the starring role instead of Kilmer. Not a film for everyone, but it kept me engaged.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. The blood was light outside of one spray.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true vampyre movie August 21, 2013

A True Vampyre movie. Mesmerizing Gothic Visuals. This movie has two completely different viewing audiences; one that gets it and one that doesn't.

1.0 out of 5 stars What was Coppola thinking? August 29, 2013
By Viva
Format:DVD
Is this really all that Coppola can do anymore? This is hardly a story and it wastes Elle Fanning completely. Something about a writer and the ghost of Poe and a haunting. You can barely follow it and it is dull as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Twixt confusion and weirdness August 20, 2013
Format:DVD
Once upon a time, Francis Ford Coppola made movies like "The Godfather" and "Apocalypse Now." He also made "Bram Stoker's Dracula," but that doesn't eclipse his accomplishments.

But Francis Ford Coppola clearly has entered the "I'm going to do whatever I want, even if it makes no sense" phase in his career. Exhibit A: "Twixt," a baffling little movie that twines together ghosts, vampire bikers, child murder, Edgar Allen Poe and a big messy knot of subplots that may or may not be real.

I once tried to summarize "Twixt" to an acquaintance, and ended up babbling incoherently about Poe, vampires, ghosts and dead children. But I'll try to tackle it anyway: Second-string horror author Hall Baltimore (Val Kilmer) is touring for his latest novel, and ends up in a small town that doesn't even have a bookstore. That evening, he encounters a strange, ghostly young girl who calls herself "V" (Elle Fanning).

He soon finds that strange things are afoot in this town -- time seems to be frozen (none of the clock faces move), there is a gang of bikers who may be vampires camped out on the lakeshore, and the ghost of Edgar Allen Poe visits him in his dreams to reveal half-forgotten secrets. And what does all this have to do with the recently-murdered girl lying in the police station?

It's really hard to even pass judgement on "Twixt" -- it would involve understanding what the director was trying to do... or thinking... or understanding ANYTHING. It feels like Coppola had four or five different ideas for stories ("Vampire bikers! A vampire/ghost orphan! Dream messages from Poe! A failing author with personal issues!"), and so he squashes all of them into one movie.

The result feels like a mad hybrid of Stephen King and David Lynch.
