Diary (2006)

--Reviewed by Lindy Loo

Plotline: Winnie's boyfriend recently broke up with her, and she doesn't seem to be coping with it well. Then she meets Ray, a new love-interest. Or is he? Is she going mad? Or wtf is going on?

Scariness factor: It's psychologically creepy more than scary.

Gross-Out Factor: There's one moment of throat-slittery grossness, but minus that, not bad at all.

Complaints: The slow unraveling delve into her madness gets a little bit tedious after awhile. The method of going back and revisiting events only to reveal the "reality" of them, and then to revisit them a third time to reveal the "real reality" was a bit long-winded and could've been cut down a bit.

High Points: The imagery and the madness were harrowing at moments. Also, the fragmentation lends well to the unveiling of her madness.

Overall: I love The Eye which is by the same director and creepy as hell. In comparison, this was a little bit too cerebral and slow-moving. But if you're into the psychological horror-flicks, you'd likely enjoy.

Grade: B-
