      exer c Nice music. Ok plot. Demi's Botox robbed her face of emotion which really showcased her terrible acting . Editing was terrible….yeah …..didn't care for it all. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/24 Full Review Audience Member Demi Moore must have a thing for ghost stories. This one is much different than Ghost, different story entirely and more than one ghost, and it's a ghost story and a hoax story all in one. The premise is sound, Moore turns in another great performance, and at the end of the story there is a satisfying wonderment about where the story took us and where it left off. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member I could not even get past the sound track. And 15 min into it, it should have been in the 90's. Would have been better if they cast Michael J Fox and at least threw in a DeLorean or made him an up and comer that gets a job in the mailroom. I am not saying you should not watch this movie. I am saying...... Bad guys would use this to torture people to get information because it would work better than water boarding. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member It takes an hour to set up this movie. Once it gets started, the combination of conspiracy and supernatural is intriguing, until it becomes clumsy and comical. The ending is very unsatisfying. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review mutlu t It is actually much better than what the critics say. I love the music and the beautyful scenery. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review wendy b Interesting mystery, with aghostly mood and beautiful scenery. Highly recommend!

      Empire Magazine Rated: 1/5 Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Amber Wilkinson Eye for Film More televisual than cinematic, Half Light is too chocolate boxy and clean to be completely convincing, but it's a diverting enough story. Rated: 3/5 Jun 13, 2008 Full Review Anton Bitel musicOMH.com if you strip away all the references to other films, and all the play on genres, what remains is a film without its own soul, as insubstantial, and as difficult to credit, as a spectre half-glimpsed through the Scottish mist. Rated: 2/5 Jun 15, 2007 Full Review Urban Cinefile Critics Urban Cinefile Demi Moore is used to the odd supernatural love story (Ghost, 1990) and she works hard at Rachel, but the screenplay just isn't up to the genre. It's not super, it's not that natural and it's not very thrilling ... the end result is not even half right. Jul 13, 2006 Full Review Matthew Turner ViewLondon There's a pleasingly Hitchcockian feel to this entertainingly old-fashioned thriller and writer-director Craig Rosenberg pulls off several impressive twists so that you're never quite sure just where the story's going. Rated: 3/5 Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall This moody thriller is fairly strong on gothic creepiness, but not so good with actual thrills. Rated: 2/5 May 27, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews
