The success of a good horror movie consists of a few simple components: intrigue, mystery, a mystery; the voltage which must constantly pumped over by sound and visual effects; the presence of characters who evoke sympathy, to them was really scary; the original ending.

With this, you can even forgive the bad script and mediocre acting. Enough and above. To unfortunately, the movies where found that together are now extremely rare, because they say "bezrybe and cancer fish." In other words, for the absence of anything less suitable to tickle nerves, I looked "Phantoms".

Not a masterpiece, but not the worst film in its genre (all is learned in comparing), which I can recommend to view fans of American adaptations of Japanese horror films.

In my opinion the movie ruined the platitudes and the actors who are in these platitudes feel great. The first and most important "banality" — this Japanese girl, or rather a phantom. For variety I would take a representative of another nationality, would come up with something different, so no, pale Japanese girl with black hair and sad eyes — it is it has become a tradition. Don't ridiculous. And it's not scary.

The second commonplace, to which is actually is holding a film — this pictures. The photo, which is something not so. Apparently it was hidden advertising (anti-ad?) Polaroid and Heads.

For some unknown to me cause, sympathy is not called one of the characters, even superficially, and therefore I feel sorry for them were not. It bad.

What the movie — picture, sound, the intrigue and the gradual explanation of what is happening. Quite on level because of this, the film was I searched up to the end. And in the film there is morality. Yes, and it lying almost on the surface. This cruel, bloody... "Love hurts," — said my friend afterwards.

Main plus "Phantom" is that it is not tightened. Hour twenty — a wonderful time for film of this genre.

I recommend to watch in good quality surrounded by columns — the sound is sometimes very bad thanks to him a couple to flinch. A very impressionable and unable to scream.

Another remake from Americans. At this time the basis is tarazskiy "Closure".

I happened to see it in the company without any expectations from the quality of the picture. As it was the perfect recipe not to spoil your mood. Watch Phantoms alone in the dark is useless, in no dreary atmosphere of horror. Yeah and scary moments, which is the film does not so scary. The film is more like a detective with the elements of horror, from what everything looks easy and doesn't take too long. The main characters constantly act evil so not gives a head start to their victims. The scene quickly replaced that gives a dynamic scenario. On the stupidity of the main characters I don't pay attention have long ago, so not can say they were or not. But the acting was quite convincing that just weird.

Operator pleased with its smoothness and accuracy, it was immediately clear that he tried to find the right angle. The music is also written correctly and to the place, sometimes even a violin saws brains.

The final you can solve when you want, if you pay attention to some details, and is this normal for this film, and not a banal predictability.

In General, there is a light entertainment on the evening of the company. As random movie on TV — most it.

Original K not watched. Because, judging by the reviews, the film turned out very good. If we talk about this tape is the same, turned out quite ordinary product. I secret the most scary and best horor, a native of Japan. Because nobody better not understands that might scare the viewer. At this, "symbiotic" projects of the Japanese and Americans, I always interesting. The Japanese, look for content side. And the Americans provide the technology. In the the wolves are fed and the sheep are safe. A good example, we can distinguish the American "Curse", shot by Director Takashi Shimizu. Then, to make a movie trusted, well-known Japanese horor maker Masayuki Ochiai. Few people familiar with his work. But after watching, we can safely say that he's one of the best in the genre. The allocated side of the picture is its gorgeous visualization. From Japanese, this is not take away. The whole movie, filmed completely stylish and efficiently. Directly on face, an amazing sense of frame of the Director. In the end, the film with a visual point of view, are simply great. Watch not only a pleasure. But and the picture itself, evokes a fair share of suspense and the atmospheric gloom of the picture. And pause the film at any point, you can admire the frame and to wonder how it's "stylish" and cool shot. If quality and expensive video.

But the content side, the movie disappoint. Although this is not surprising, given the fact that it's a remake. And even more remake of American manufacturing. To over some Asian or European film does not try, it turns out is not that want to see. It is worth remembering terrible "Calls" "Let Me in". What the most important thing in a Thriller ? Of course fear stress. But none when the viewing of the painting, to feel so not found. The film was developed very monotone and gray. Although some moments, was really interesting. Especially the time with the lights off in the room and periodic flashes of light from the camera. When Megumi first attack on Ben. In General, a pretty picture, but completely empty. Oh yeah, thanks for the scene Harajuko. Where it without "them" when talking about Japan.

The idea of pattern, just gorgeous. In this regard, the Asian horor makers absolute good. But really are the moments when the photos, there is something. Something that we call defective film, a defect or a glare. But suddenly it wrong ? In defense of this idea, the world knows a lot of cases, and shrouded in mystery. Yeah and the idea of the Phantoms, very interesting. Phantoms, according to numerous references, can interfere with a person and even harm. Although it, they remain positive incarnation. So how are beacons that point to anything meaningful. the Idea in General is great, but here implementation pumped up. The main drawback of the paintings in that there are no a certain tension and mystery. It is immediately clear that Ben not agree with the spirit of "What Lies beneath" by Robert Zemeckis. And it is immediately clear that is waiting for the main characters in the movie. Including the clarity of the final. This is what makes the story less stressful. Yeah and is reduced to the minimum number of imaginative scenes, is clearly the picture is not good. In the film, no special originality. For the main contents of the picture, it's stamps. The stamps, which in General, is fun to watch. But which is clearly not allocate the film in the best light. The final was very modest. Yeah and some try to the point of view of motivation. Although, if morality paintings in women's solidarity, I'm not surprised.

Joshua Jackson, I know only of the TV series "Fringe." So far, little something to compare. But as I played it just not bad. No special brightness and allocated qualities, but game, it is not exactly leaves nervosa and irritation behind. Rachel Taylor up to that I only saw "Transformers". Nice to see that she play something "seriously". The emotion of fear passed as not particularly realistic. But as with Jackson, the game is not bad. Megumi Okina played very well. But unfortunately, it character impressed certainly not scared. Sadako Forever ! One of the rest of the cast, I don't remember. So that, to select someone or not will.

Nathan Barr is one of the best composers, underground horrow. Purely commercial horor composers, you can list up to infinity. But here are composers that create the music to not particularly noisy and questionable projects, but make it is bright, can be counted on the fingers of one hand. One of them is Nathan Barr. Music I liked it. How strange. So like, really bad and strong musical motifs, I in the picture is not noticed. the music gives the impression of something medium, between scary and simultaneously these beautiful works of Brian Tyler and synth "sagging" by John Powell. Rare case when the music is beautiful, dynamic, but at the same time, mysterious and sometimes scary. an Original combination of Oriental motifs, violin, and synthesizer. The last two executed at all original. Because there is nothing remotely similar to that I haven't listen.

The visual effects are very even not bad. Balabolit I will not. So it's still need to see. And do not grasp in a series of laudatory words in the address of masters computer graphics.

5 out of 10

Not a bad project. Many flaws, but I was even fun to watch. In General, this is a "Beautiful candy with tasteless content". So that, to watch a movie or not is up to you ...
