THE RETURN

A horror movie that stars Sarah Michelle Gellar screams teen flick, I know, I know. But to be honest this s well made pretty good little thriller/ghostly flick that is good for a rental. To be honest when this first came out I had no interest in seeing it. For the trailer I could just tell I wasn't about it. But every one in a while we all still meet up and watch a flick at my Grandmother's house when some of us can make it. She loves ghost, horror, thrillers, and suspense movies like crazy.

Joanna Mills is having trouble at work since she is having visions where she can see a woman being murdered. She takes these visions on the road with her to a Texas town where the answers to her questions may or may not be answered. This town has everything she has been seeing in her visions. From the settings all the way to the people she is seeing. And even people from her past may or may not show up.

This was surprisingly better than I thought it would be, my own fault I guess. I thought with the star here and just the look of the thing it would be, well not so good. To my surprise it is really well done and the atmosphere of the film is great. Still it is not a classic and you should know that right now. The acting is good but there is just that special something missing. It could be that it feels like we may have seen this flick before, or at least some like it.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is well cast here and really fits the role well, in fact every one is well cast here. Like I said it is kinda like you have seen this movie before. I do like that this is not you typical horror flick from the past couple of years. This really was not made for the teen audience, thank goodness for that. Not to say that those films are all bad because some are actually good. Any way this is a good movie that I would recommend as a rental first.
