So I watched a rather dull horror film called Case 39 (2009) at weekend, starring Renee Zellwegger about a traumatised young girl played by the other-worldly Jodelle Ferland. Thankfully the film reminded me of the brilliant Tideland (2005) in which Ferland also stars. The film is seen through the eyes of Jeliza-Rose (sounding like Vivien Leigh in Gone With The Wind), her parents are drug addicts, but she creates a world of her own where she takes on different characters through play. The film is disturbing because it's difficult to maintain a childlike view of things as Jeliza-Rose does, but if you can grasp your inner child naivety it is an amazing film. Gilliam describes it as a cross between Alice In Wonderland and Psycho, how could you not be intrigued?

Here's the trailer, and oh yeah Jeff Bridges is in it so you know go watch it now!
