Justin Chang Variety a jumpy little psychological thriller that plays like a nonstop anxiety-attack. Jun 13, 2006 Full Review Scott Weinberg DVDTalk.com Imagine the little kid from The Sixth Sense as a frazzled stay-at-home mom played by Marisa Tomei. Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 16, 2007 Full Review Keith Breese Filmcritic.com may not really be worth all the toil. Rated: 2.5/5 Dec 30, 2006 Full Review Luke Y. Thompson LYTRules.com It just doesn't really have much to say, and the ending makes what little one does invest in it utterly irrelevant. Nov 17, 2006 Full Review Josh Bell Las Vegas Weekly The message is unexplored and eventually buried under an avalanche of cheap shock tactics and pointlessly dizzying visuals. Rated: 2/5 Jun 15, 2006 Full Review Michael Ferraro Film Threat This film has enough sporadic scares and psychological tension throughout to entertain a Friday night crowd but a more sophisticate audience may not give it the chance. Rated: 3/5 Jun 13, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

exer c More than psychological thriller……heartbreaking gut punch… Not "entertaining " so so very disturbing Acting,cast, story superb … Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/28/24 Full Review Terri Lynn "Danika" is like a rollercoaster ride through the depths of fear and suspense! It's a heart-pounding mix of horror and psychological thrills that kept me guessing until the very end. The unexpected twists were like a bolt from the blue, and the whole experience was a nail-biting adventure that I won't soon forget. This movie is a five-star masterpiece that will leave you breathless and craving more! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/26/24 Full Review Audience Member I didn't understand what happened. That's all I have to say. If someone asked me to tell the story of the movie I wouldn't be able to. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member OK, so we're in the mind of a schizophrenic, and we come along for the ride not knowing what is real and what is not (point of note, just like A Beautiful Mind got it wrong, schizophrenics don't see people. They don't have a Sixth Sense). I enjoyed it for awhile, and then when the son's girlfriend says she has AiDS while talking to the mom in bed, I ran short of interest. I'm not here to have to endlessly puzzle over outcomes, I do that in my professional life enough, thank you. And so I'm guessing by the end we're wondering if any of what we saw happened at all. What's real and what is not, but if there's no need for continuity, why write the screen play in the first place? Wouldn't any sequence of events work equally well? Needed more coherence to be a bigger winner, thus the overall low score. Deconstructionism should be left for literary classes. I'll take my movies with a little less need for analyses, if you will, doctor. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a well thought out and executed movie with a surprise ending. Unfortunately, while the unexpected ending wraps up the movie well and answers all of the questions you are asking during the movie, it lands with a thud. Marisa Tomei is excellent as she runs through the gambit of emotions. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Honestly I have a lot of questions. The movie is like putting a puzzle together, but everytime you finally see the picture there's this piece left in your hand that just won't fit. The kids in the car accident are fairly young, meaning what we saw in the entire movie was only going on in her head. Her son who the nanny left at home alone was still a toddler, so you get me? Anyway that leads to my conclusion that none of it actually happened, but its unfolding in her head as she seats down at the place of the accident (schizophrenia). Well ok, but how does that explain that she lost a brother when she was a little girl leading to over protectiveness? Oh never mind that too is in her head. I just want to know though why the husband says she's crazy and hallucinates when she caught him at the motel? Prior to the cheating she could have been a normal mom right? I also hate how the husband abandoned her to be a street woman like that. Great story though. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
