Review by mizi causevic (posted on 13-Feb-2005)

I should be quite and say that the only reason why I saw this was because the name Darren Aronofsky (Requiem For A Dream, Pi) was attached to it. Not as a director but as a co-writer and a producer. Sources say this movie was actually suppose to have been directed by Darren but he decided to do Requiem For A Dream instead, and for that... I really can't blame him since Requiem For A Dream was one of my favorite movies. Anyway, the movie was done by the director David Twohy who is known for Pitch Black and for the upcoming Riddick. Even though I would have loved to see what Aronofsky could have done this movie, we don't always get what we want but even so, David Twohy did a good job with this little unknown film.

An extremely claustrophobic thriller that naturally takes place inside of a submarine with bunch of crew members who are hiding a dark secret. An American submarine in a middle of a World War II picks up two Brits and one of them just so happens to be a very attractive lady, Claire Paige (Olivia Williams, Sixth Sense, Rushmore). Naturally, with nothing but men in the submarine, problems arise with the the little lady who just wants everyone to get along. (The way the crew introduced the arrival of Claire Page into the submarine was absolutely hilarious by the way) Aside of this, the crew members start hearing horror like voices and seeing things they would only see in their nightmares. Little do they know that some of them are keeping a very dirty secret that will eventually take over them whether they like it or not, an unexplainable chain of events takes over the story and glues you to the screen.

I can already tell that I will be getting quite a few e-mails from visitors of this site, flipping out over the fact that I gave this movie a 3/5 star rating. Now I am no way saying this movie will be liked by everyone, I personally believe it was really good for what it promised. If you liked a certain thriller called Session 9, you will most likely enjoy this movie as well because they both focus on the mood rather than on the straight forward scare tactics approach that most horror/thriller movies focus on. By all means, it's not a scary movie, it's not a typical horror flick either, however, it is a creepy thriller that really got the short end of the stick as far it's release goes. See it if you enjoyed Session 9.
