Presence, The (2010)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
10.17.11

Presence, The (2010) There is no dialogue the first fifteen minutes of this film, which would have been fine if it was interesting, as in I AM LEGEND. During this time, we're introduced to a mopey, pale-faced ghost of a young man who looks forlornly out of the windows of an old cabin. Then, a woman shows up (Mira Sorvino of MIMIC), who is obviously staying there. It's clear she cannot see the ghost.

Once the talking begins we find out that she's taking some time off, needing to get away, so she has returned to her childhood vacation spot. However, this brings up all sorts of emotions about her sexually abusive father. And it doesn't help that her fiance shows up, without warning, and proposes to her. She has mixed feelings but eventually agrees to marry him. Then, another ghost shows up, more of a demonic entity, who whispers things in her ear. She becomes more unstable. And this red-haired ghost begins corrupting the ghost that is already there, so that he'll do something violent towards her or her boyfriend.

While the revelation of the identity of the original ghost surprised me, my problem was the story and the way in which it was shot. There is no suspense whatsoever. It's simply one long shot after the other. By the time she realizes there are ghosts messing with her, after seventy minutes, it's "So what?". It's too little, too late.
