Half Light
2006
After the accidental drowning death of her young son, grieving mom Rachel Carson, a successful novelist, heads to a remote cottage for a much-needed retreat, only to get caught up in a murder mystery.

Scott Hardie: “It sucked.”

For me, seeing this Demi Moore haunted-lighthouse movie in the same weekend as Ghost didn't do it any favors. It goes for cheap jolts instead of lingering dread, it has a predictable twist, and it's just plain not very bright. Moore is a talented actress lacking broad appeal, so she gets stuck doing this kind of straight-to-DVD junk that has no use for her intensity or intelligence. The Welsh island setting is gorgeous, though.
