Face from the past threatens to drag protagonists back to a life they’d rather forget. Forget tension and suspense, stereotype the characters and make them behave obviously to a script we’ve seen many times before. Add a landscape so bleak and depressing, you’d think they’d welcome the diversion of a nutter in their midst. Some things, Hollywood does best!
A disappointing 3 out of 10.
