Rodrigo Cortés follows Buried witha supernatural thriller

Rodrigo Cortés follows up Buried with this scary-silly supernatural thriller about an investigative duo (Cillian Murphy, Sigourney Weaver) who specialise in debunking phony faith healers and the like.

Then up pops blind ‘psychic’ Robert De Niro, who emerges from 30 years of seclusion to perform at packed houses.

Determined to expose him, the two engage in a game of cat and mouse that purports to show us both sides of the paranormal coin but often just bemuses.

Still, Cortés knows how to time a shock, and the ludicrous ending is, in its own way, spectacular.
