What Lies Beneath (2000)


Whatliesbeneath2“Are we hoping the ghost is going to have to use the potty? ” – Jody

Number of Times Seen – 2 (Theater on 5 Nov 2000 and 9 Jun 2015)

Brief Synopsis – After moving into a new home, a woman thinks that the house is haunted by a young woman who disappeared a year earlier.

My Take on it – This is the kind of thriller that is ok when you see it for the first time, but once you know the ending it just isnt as good anymore.

I expected something much better from Director Robert Zemeckis and actors Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer.

I can appreciate the fact that this was done in the spirit of a Hitchcockian thriller, but it really doesn’t hold a candle to some of his work.

Bottom Line – A pretty generic thriller that isn’t as good as I would have expected from these actors and director. Might have been slightly better the first time since then I obviously didn’t know the ending. Done in a way to be reminiscent of some of Hitchcock’s work, but there really is no comparison.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Director Robert Zemeckis filmed this while production on Cast Away (2000) was shut down (so Tom Hanks could lose weight for his character). (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy
