[2.75/10] The Marsh (2006)

The Marsh (2006)

Short review: "The Marsh" is yet another tedious, standard haunted house ghost story, that suffers from uninspired plot, horrendous dialogue, third-rate special effects and cheap scares. "The Marsh" is about a sophisticated author haunted by gruesome visions of violence and death that would be far out of place in her successful series of children's books, who embarks on a brief sabbatical into the countryside that turns out to be far from the convalescent getaway her doctor had prescribed. The acting was mediocre at best, except for Forest Whitaker, who did a decent job with the material he was given, thanks to his considerable talent. Gabriel Anwar, in the lead role, was bland and uninteresting to watch. The cinematography was simply poor, as was the scenery - the forest/marsh environment looked horrifyingly fake and amateurishly-done. "The Marsh" is poorly executed low-budget horror, with a predictable and unoriginal story, that lacks creepiness and suspense, scares and intensity.
