Has anyone else seen this yet? I caught it on a double-bill with EIGHT-LEGGED FREAKS this past weekends and was kinda disappointed with it. Sure it has a talented cast and an interesting beginning, but halfway through I started to lose interest. The pacing was very slow and I found myself fighting boredom at several points. The story also started to lose some steam at the halfway point and lost me completely. This is probably a movie that requires a degree of patience on the viewer. If so, I may give it another chance on video. But anyone else who has seen it please chime in with your opinions. Hopefully I'm not alone on this since I was looking forward to this one for awhile.

I was disappointed with it as well. I thought casting Williams was interesting, but overall the movie just felt...flat. I'd be interested in seeing the original Norweigian (???) film, though.
