Review: The Haunting of Amelia

Ten years after a tragic train accident killed his girlfriend, Josh finds himself haunted by disturbing visions from somewhere between the world of the living and the dead-haunting memories that keep him from moving on. His buddy, Rusty back in town for their high school reunion, tries to wake Josh from his painful past, but a mysterious young waitress offers a seductive alternative.

The film stars Brendan Fehr (Roswell, CSI: Miami), Chad Lindberg (The Fast and the Furious), Tania Raymonde (Lost), Beatrice Rosen (2012), Natassia Malthe (Elektra), Sam Robards (American Beauty, Gossip Girl), Stephnie Weir (MadTV) and Shirley Knight (Paul Blart: Mall Cop).

Short film director A.D. Calvo makes his feature film debut with THE HAUNTING OF AMELIA (Wish You Were Here, Nine Lives), and also takes on the duties of writing and producing.  Linda Ayr Calvo (Castro in Central Park, Hillary's Bust), John Courtmanche (Sports Kabob), and Patrick Hadley are also credited with producing. 

I was expecting THE HAUNTING OF AMELIA to be a horror flick when I first heard the title.  I watched this movie last night and it's kind of a slow paced movie.  I don't mean that in a bad way because looking back on the entire plot, it had to be slow or else it wouldn't have made sense.  I wouldn't necessarily say that it's my favorite movie but it was definitely worth seeing.  I give it four stars.

DVD features include: 16:9 widescreen format, 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound, interactive menus, scene selection, trailers, and optional Spanish subtitles.
