This is another one of those movies with endless promise that failed completely in the execution. Lambert (The In Crowd) gathered together a sterling cast and presented them with a script (by Tom Malloy, also responsible for The Alphabet Killer, co-written with Robert M. Reitano, an Emmy-winning editor) that desperately needed another few rewrites.
In this one, Emma (Elisabeth Moss from TV's Mad Men) and her family--father Graham (John Savage), mother Kim (Catherine Mary Stuart), and mentally challenged brother Frankie (Love 'n Dancing's Tom Malloy)--have moved out to the country. Emma hasn't left the house since the move. Part of it seems to stem from agoraphobia (one of the places the script could have used a bit of work was in illustrating this better), and the other part from an encounter she had in the attic; when exploring, she uncovered a mirror that seemed to show her not a reflection of herself, but an entirely different person who looks exactly like her. Her inability to leave the house handicaps her when it comes to investigating, which becomes necessary when weird things start happening, but she finds a tenuous ally in a local detective, John Trevor (Sex and the City's Jason Lewis). Together, the two of them have to find out what the deal is with Emma's supposed twin before the twin comes for her family, and for Emma herself.
While the ending is pretty predictable (and the plot twist in the final scene you should be able to see coming from a mile off), that doesn't necessarily make for a bad movie; if there had been anything before that to offset it. There was certainly enough of a chance for that to happen, with so much starpower here, but everyone comes off flat and uninspiring. I normally like John Savage in just about anything, but even he couldn't save this one. Elisabeth Moss gets a lot of screen time, and she's gorgeous, but that's about the only thing I can say to recommend this. **
The movie had so much talent in front as well as behind the camera that surely I couldn't go wrong with picking this one out of the sea of stinkers out there in stream land?
I found the writing to be the "biggest looser" in this movie because the story doesn't really go anywhere and when it does at the end you have been waiting throughout the entire movie for it and other things to happen. As I mentioned before it starts our fast for a good setup, but then meanders along until the end and along with Moss's affliction that doesn't make much sense to me considering what was going on in the house?
The production values were quite nice except for some acting, direction and again the writing for a movie in this genre and helps this rate 2 stars instead of 1 star.
This was a terrible waste of talent and viewers time to watch what should have been a really good horror/thriller movie with a good cast.
There is some cursing including the f...word and a partially nude young woman (no full/partial frontal female nudity) and a mild sex (implied) and a murder scene with some blood. 2 stars.
A complete aside, but what is it with these moody horror films that insist on dressing the female lead in costumes of lacy, Victoriana-style nightgowns?
the only thing that kept me watching was laughing at the terrible story/acting.

I have no idea why Emma would do such a low value production film like this one. She is a C level supporting actress at best and is not nearly magnetic enough to carry this film. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Amazon Customer
