Hehe. To be fair to Slater though he was good in the series Breaking In. The pilot was pretty tight. Shame it didn't last more than 7 eps when so much other crap got picked up this season. Freaked me out though as I watched it after watching Heathers again and the age was really throwing me particularly as he had some JD mannerisms. Slater will be popping up all over the place in '11 & '12.
Whereas Carpenter has far more to attone for as he hasn't made a decent film since '86. He should have left on a high because I don't think he has it in him anymore and his woeful outweighs the gold.
I thought it was decent, watched it last night on Netflix, not great, but not horrible. Kind of predictable.
Nothing here is in any way original, including the resolution to the mystery, which whilst improving a fairly generic ghost story has also been done before in better films. Having said that the film is very watchable and Carpenter still knows how to pull off some tense scenes and scares. It's just as shame that he can't apply these talents to a more original script.
Well, better a bad Carpenter, than no Carpenter at all... Score: 5/10.
