GREAT song by Heart... Less impressive movie.
I'm in two minds about this one.
On the one hand, I like the idea of a cojoined twin who died when being separated by an operation coming back to haunt her surviving sibling. And there is certainly plenty of angst to go around as we discover more about their past, and their connection to the man they both loved. Plus, that twist near the end is a doozie.
On the other, it's laden with cheap, unimaginative frights which only work intermittently. Also, the action moves at a snail's pace... so by the time the big JUMP moment happens, you've probably lost interest anyway. The characters lack definition and purpose... And it's hard to take them seriously with names like Pim and Ploy anyway. In the worst case, as a girl is wheeled into the hospital calling out repeatedly for her boyfriend Wee, what is supposed to be an emotional moment turns into a guffawing contest.
So, while I enjoyed the concept and set-up, some of the execution leaves something to be desired. Overall, a middle of the road 5/10.
