Visions is one of those horror movies that feels like it's for your mom and dad, but that doesn't mean it's not good. Isla Fisher adds some weight to this story of a woman who is being haunted by something, and it doesn't help that she has PTSD that turns into a paranoid wreck through most of the film. Even though this movie feels very What Lies Beneath, there's still a pretty good twist at the end. It's A-okay.
There's nothing like a paranormal activity taking place in the middle of nowhere. Better yet, a farm!
Do you ever ask yourself, what have Mira Sorvino and Shane West been up to? Apparently they've been making this spooky movie that puts a new spin on that old gothic standby of a ghostly love affair. It's kind of like if Mark Wahlberg were a ghost in that movie Fear. It's definitely worth a watch on a dreary eve.
