If you stick with it, it's well worth it.

I'm one of those people that came close to switching it off, I found the first half of the film excruciatingly boring, I've never watched a horror thriller before and found myself nodding off, with this I did. Possibly because I didn't quite get what was going on with the story, it wasn't explained in any sort of way, which I found frustrating, but once you become involved as a viewer, which is just over half way through, the film becomes gripping, captivating, and thoroughly enjoyable.

Very well acted, Adrien Brody is terrific, as is Sam Neill. Some terrific special effects, and good music, which doesn't overtake the film.

Second watch, and I'll enjoy it all the more.

The only scenario I can think of for this film, imagine being invited to a party where you don't know anyone, half way through you get to know the guests, have a drink, and engage. This film is the same.

Haunted by the Past

After losing his daughter hit by a truck, the troubled psychologist Peter Bower (Adrien Brody) moves to Sidney with his wife Carol (Jenni Baird) and his colleague and friend Dr. Duncan Stewart (Sam Neill) gets strange patients for him. When Dr. Bower discovers a secret about Dr. Stewart and his patients, he travels alone to his hometown False Creek to the house of his estranged father William Bower (George Shevtsov). Haunted by his past, Peter digs his recollections and uncovers a hideous secret from his past.

"Backtrack" is an above average ghost story, with a good screenplay. The cast has great performance and the plot is intriguing, entwining family drama with horror and the conclusion is well resolved. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Visões do Passado" ("Visions from the Past")

It doesn't feel okay

Dr. Peter Bower (Adrien Brody) laments and blames himself over the death of his daughter Evie (Emma O'Farrell). He accepts a job in Sydney doing psychological assessment. He discovers his patients all have one thing in common, something which forces him to return home and remember an event from over 20 years ago.

Adrien Brody appears to have been typed cast into roles of a gloomy individual. He plays a pathetic individual not knowing what is happening to him, someone who sees ghosts. The film never develops into a real horror in spite of a few attempts to have a scary ghost scene. It is described as a mystery/thriller with the thriller side being light and half of the mystery revealed in the film trailer. The mystery peels itself back like an onion skin, never giving us enough clues to go beyond the next level.

While I enjoyed watching the film, it is not one I would watch again.
