I believe Demi Moore is an outstanding actor and she didn't disappoint in this movie in her performance. She plays an author in this movie who has to endure the death of her son. At first I thought her son was murdered but it turns out that was not the case and we find Demi hidding herself at a secluded ocean front home desperately tring to regain some reason for living. It is during this time she sees visions of her son, finds messages from him and falls in love with the keeper of the lighthouse, who truly is not who you think he is.

For a little while you may feel this movie is moving way too slow, but it is building up to a very suspenseful conclusion and one that will surprise you. Suspense, action, romance and a 'never saw it coming,' conclusion awaits you in this movie and is certainly worth your time.

I love it, it has mystery, romance, scary and sad. All set in Scotland in a lighthouse. Demi is sexy and the movie has twisty turns. Good for a rainy, stormy night!

My wife and I saw Half Light on the shelf at a local video rental store and decided to take a chance on it. We'd never heard of it (which surprised us since we're usually pretty hip to what movies come out at the theatre), but the description on the back of the DVD box intrigued us.

We loved it so much that, when it was over, we immediately ordered a copy from Amazon!

Half Light features stunning cinematography and a breathtaking soundtrack, full of Celtic instruments and delicate passages of music that -- combined with the images on the screen -- completely captivated us. We couldn't take our eyes off the movie. In fact, we kept telling each other, "Boy, wouldn't it be great to live there! What a beautiful location!"

I guessed what was going on about half way through the movie, but that didn't detract from the suspense we felt throughout the entire movie -- real, actual scares and not cheap shots with sound effects or someone coming up behind the actor on screen and grabbing his/her shoulder.

I love a good spooky movie. But so few are made these days. Either the CGI monsters are so goofy that they're laughable, or the writing is pedantic and stupid, or the premise is half-baked, or all the actors looks like they stepped out of TV show The OC, as vapid as any human beings can possibly be.

Half Light delivered the goods, never once disappointing us. The acting was first-rate (especially the Gaelic locals). The cinematography was nothing short of gorgeous. The soundtrack is something I hope exists because we'd love to own it. And the story itself was believable. We couldn't have asked for more from a movie and, in fact, were totally blown away by Half Light because we didn't expect much at all.

I have no idea why Half Light seems to have gone straight to DVD. It's easily one of the best movies we've seen in years.

I highly recommend Half Light.

As a fan of Demi Moore, I was very interested in seeing this film. Moore hasn't made many movies since the '90s. After "GI Jane" and "Striptease," she retired from her career for a few years to raise her children. She only appeared in two films, the weak independent film "Passion of Mind" and "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle." From 1997-2005 is a long time to wait for a new Demi Moore starring vehicle, which is why I was so anxious to see "Half Light."

It is disappointing that there was no promotion whatsoever in the U.S. for this film. After seeing the film on DVD, I'm also incredibly disappointed it wasn't given a chance in theaters. Demi Moore needs a comeback. She is only 43, still in her prime, and constantly in the limelight due to her high-profile marriage to Ashton Kutcher. Obviously, she is still very famous, so why couldn't a Demi Moore film such as "Half Light" fare incredibly well in theaters? Take Julianne Moore, who is Demi Moore's age, in "The Forgotten," for example. That was a much weaker film than "Half Light," but it performed reasonably well at the box office.

I just don't think the executives in charge were willing to give Demi a chance, and that is a shame for a number of reasons. "Half Light" is an excellent thriller--full of suspense, beautiful scenery, score, and a luminous, emotionally-charged performance by Demi. It's probably her best performance. I admit I am a fan of the actress, so perhaps I am slightly biased, but I admit not all of her work was good. I still think Hester Prynne in "The Scarlet Letter" was her best role, "Indecent Proposal" was her best film, and now I know her very best performance was in "Half Light.

What a pleasant surprise... script, setting, photography, acting, nothing truly outstanding yet all fit together for me like a deep, slowly moving river...a cerebral, visual, audio and intellectual meditation. Much of the innuendo of the script was obvious, much was not, found myself enjoying the second guessing to the ending. One never knows...ah cannot give anything away, for me it was good, I felt good at the ending, listened to the music while reading the credits, the mellowness like after a long run...endorphin doing their thing. This is a "dare to try it movie"...try it at the right time and be surprised by joy, or at least the warmth of a nice merlot.
