I liked it. Don’t know what the fuss about it was. Heard there was something wrong with this film but apart from it being a bit light on the horror I thought there was enough to watch.

Halle is cute. I’m not a Halle fan but she’s really young and charming as both a doctor and a patient. She also acts her straightjacket off and I say that even though she’s never struck me as a leading actor. Here, however, she’s good although the very last minutes are a bit weak.

Robert and most of the rest of the support don’t need to do much but the plot has a couple of twists that make it a thriller more than a horror so as a piece of entertainment I didn’t feel cheated.

Good for a watch or two, not going to be a classic but worth a peek every so often.

DVD Extras: A bit of commentary, a bit of ‘patient interviews’ and for some reason more on the making of the Limp Bizkit video than anything else. Like I care. In other words, no extras that I’m interested in.

No

Watch if on TV?

Snog, Marry, Avoid?
How can you not snog Halle? Snog.
