Writer/ Director: Michele Taverna
Cast: Mischa Barton, Rebecca DeMornay, Julianne Michelle, Corey Sevier, John Deihl, Kathleen Mckey
This flick is a remake of a Japanese movie of the same name. I have never seen that film, but it cannot possibly be any worse than this film. That being said, I also doubt that it is it this hilarious. The script to this movie is fucking mess. Ridiculous plot twists abound, and the dialogue is down right hilarious. I swear to God, I was laughing my ass off watching this and hearing the cast spout off unforgettable lines like "Apartments don't kill people. People kill people!" BWAHAHAHA!!! Aside, from not being able to write a smart or compelling movie; writer director Michele Taverna also has no concept of telling a scary or suspenseful movie.
This is all accompanied by our blonde trio of actresses who achieve various degrees of success throughout the movie. Michelle is downright awful in this movie as the doomed sister. I have never seen this chick before, so I have no clue if it is just her or the miserable script. But, I swear to God, anytime she was onscreen and opened her mouth I was in awe as to how terrible she is! She maybe pretty, but talented, nope she most definitely is not. Barton tries her best with the crap that is handed to her. Meanwhile, I genuinely felt terrible for DeMornay, watching this. It would be totally depressing if not for the fact that her scenery chewing is utterly hilarious! I swear I didn't know if I should cry for her needing the cash and having to be this turd, or be grateful for just how much fun she added to this movie.
There is no real gore to speak of this movie. The ghosts aren't particularly memorable and certainly not scary. Sadly, the absolutely beautiful Ms. Barton (a long time favorite of mine) has her titties covered up by fucking CGI bubbles, while she bathes (see GIF to the left)!! I found that really awful and not funny at all, just utterly heartbreaking and disappointing! Mostly, this one scored an R-rating cause of the F-bombs that are dropped. *sigh*
