Storyline

In World War II, the airman Toby Jugg is hit in the spine during an airborne attack and he becomes paraplegic. His aunt-in-law Julia Jugg is his only relative and sends him to rest in a clinic in the countryside. Toby is in love with Julia and writes several letters to her but she does not respond. Toby is haunted by shadows and bugs and Dr. Hal Burns, who is responsible for his treatment, complains that Toby does not open his feelings to him. One day, one intern goes to the town and brings a letter from Julia to Toby, and he finds that Dr. Burns is hiding his correspondence. When Julia is informed, she comes to the clinic to stay with Toby that seems to be mentally ill. One night, Dr. Burns gives a razor to Toby and tells him to do the right thing, trying to induce him to commit suicide. But late night Toby discovers the secret of Julia and Hal.

If you want to understand this film - don't watch it, read the book.
16 November 2012 | by nitzanhavocSee all my reviews

Let me start by saying I've made a mistake. I was looking for a Horror film, and was naive enough to think a title involving "haunted" would be Horror. I must have forgotten to double check.

Second - I have no idea how to review this. I don't think I was able to understand the plot, the twist (was there one?) or even the main gist. I could only assume that the director, while trying to make us feel as confused about the border between reality and psychosis as the protagonist. Problem is - if we don't know what's real, we can't understand the film, now can we?

I have not seen the Twilight trilogy, so I'm enough unbiased to be able to say that Pattinson's acting in this film wasn't as superb as other reviews would have you believe. It was good, yes, but not magnificent. The dialogues are confusing, bizarre and almost surreal. The one thing good about the script was the poetic touch in the letters Toby wrote Julia.

So... all in all? I have no idea what happened in this film, why the events turned the way the did, and what caused it. A very unrewarding experience.
