yes, Stephanie did it again. I like movies that are different and you can't predict. This was very interesting concept and it wouldn't be perfect without a love story and twist. My roomie, "tough guy" went and cried, it was sweet. Enjoy! GO

I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS MOVIE, BUT IT TURNED OUT TO BE A MAJOR DISSAPOINTMENT..IT WAS A LOW BUDGET MOVIE WITH ALOT OF HYPE AND PROMOTION..THE ACTING WAS HORRIBLE, THE STORY WAS BORING..I HAVE SEEN TV COMMERCIALS WITH MORE APPEAL THAN THIS CRAP...I FEEL SO DECEIVED AND RIPPED OFF..I WANT MY MONEY BACK...DONT GO SEE THIS MOVIE..DONT EVEN SEE IT ON DVD !!!

While you experience the film mainly with Wanda/Melanie, it makes you feel all the emotions that would overwhelm you if you were in that kind of position. It also has two love stories built into one film. The love between Melanie and Jared seems to be a love that could overcome anything. It is a true love story that tugs at the strings of your heart. All you can do is hope for them to be brought back together again. Then there is the love between Wanda and Ian a passionate love that you can’t let go of. The science fiction aspect adds more character and originality to the film. Instead of being just a love story, it is also a struggle for survival against the souls taking over the human bodies. It is an amazing film that you should definitely go see! I also hope there is a sequel.

There is very little body to this film. A story that could have been told within the first 10 minutes was drawn out by useless scenes and dialogue that screamed..."get to the point" ! I also note that the casting director of today should take a page from those of the classic films of Hollywood...and start using "real" looking actors. Everyone in the world isn't "pretty"; in fact, most are pretty plain. With this in mind, I realize that Bogart would never be cast in a film today.
The casting people should at least try to make the cast look different from one another. I was mixing up most of the characters (male) throughout the film. Overall, very disappointing.

It's been a few years since I read the book when it first came out so I don't have all the details fresh in my head but what I can remember I thought they stayed pretty close to the book. The only thing I didn't like in the movie was the actress Emily Browning who plays Wanda at the end of the movie. The book said she had red hair and freckles. This girl looks like a duck and is not cute in any way! Bad job on casting I think! The rest of the movie I felt was pretty cool. the acting was good.
