Box, The (2009)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
03.07.10

Box, The (2009) The first forty minutes or so pretty much sums up the Richard Matheson short story upon which this feature is based. In the 1970's a couple, Norma and Arthur (Cameron Diaz and James Marsden), is given a strange box that has a button on it. They are then approached by a disfigured man (Frank Langella) who explains what they have to do or not do. If they push the button someone will die somewhere and they'll get a million dollars. If they don't push the button they don't get the money. So I don't think I'm spoiling the movie when I say that one of them pushes the button--after all, how were they going to get another 50 minutes out of this premise? But then the movie veers off into a surreal sci-fi flick with aliens, sort of like what THE FORGOTTEN did. And there are even people acting like pseudo-zombies. Sadly, this doesn't work. I don't know if director Richard Kelly thought he had to make it similar to his previous films (DONNY DARKO, SOUTHLAND TALES) or what, but a straight psychological thriller would have worked far far better. Don't rent this, keep the DVD in its box.
