Spooky Southern Gothic

Sam Raimi avoids the camp of the "Evil Dead" trilogy to deliver some serious scares in "The Gift," a Southern-Gothic ESP thriller that stars Cate Blanchett in the role of Annie, a psychic living in a small town.

When local flake Jessica King (Katie Holmes) gets murdered, Annie's sixth sense acts up, leading the authorities to one man- resident wife-beater and town redneck Donnie... read more

Before making the Spider-Man trilogy and becoming one of the most successful mainstrean directors, Sam Raimi made this moody super-natural thriller. It is also interesting to point out that Billy Bob Thornton did write this movie (maybe people tends to forget it but Thornton got his breakthrough with his directing and writing and not actually as an actor). Anyway, there are many things to enjoy he... read more

A Complete review of Sam Raimi's work (14 movies items)

" Cast : Cate Blanchett, Giovanni Ribisi, Keanu Reeves, Katie Holmes, Greg Kinnear, Hilary Swank, J.K. Simmons What was it about? A woman with extrasensory perception is asked to help find a young woman who has disappeared. My two cents: It is interesting to point out that Billy Bob Thornton did actually write this movie. Anyway, there were many things to enjoy here. First of all, Raimi knows how to direct a thriller and the whole thing was really a nice moody affair. Then, there was a very "

"14.7. The Giftin katsominen oli hyvin tärkeää, koska olen nähnyt sen joskus kauan kauan sitten eikä minulla ollut sille pisteitä. Uusintakatselulla tajusin, ettei tämmöinen kama kiinnosta minua yhtään minkään vertaa. TV-tallennuksessa parasta oli loppuratkaisun jälkeen tullut mainostauko, jonka jälkeen elokuva kesti ehkä kaksi minuuttia. "

"Possibly my least favorite Cate Blanchet films, who is one of my favorite actresses. It had a hell of a cast, in fact, besides Keanu's attempt at acting."

Spooky Southern Gothic

“Sam Raimi avoids the camp of the "Evil Dead" trilogy to deliver some serious scares in "The Gift," a Southern-Gothic ESP thriller that stars Cate Blanchett in the role of Annie, a psychic living in a small town.

When local flake Jessica King (Katie Holmes) gets murdered, Annie's sixth sense acts up, leading the authorities to one man- resident wife-beater and town redneck Donnie Barksdale (Keanu Reeves.) Of course, Donnie's not the one who done it, and with her power under scrutiny, Annie must find the real killer before she, too, becomes a victim.

The strength of this movie is that it avoids the pitfalls of modern horror films. First of all, Annie isn't the usual ditzy, flaky, slutty heroine, who along with her group of dumb friends has a total IQ of 50. She behaves i” read more

It was above all pretty neat to see actors such as Keanu Reeves, Hilary Swank or even Katie Holmes to play a” read more
