Gore Verbinski makes the film look good - a creepy setting, the right atmosphere, hell, even Dane DeHaan is better than I've ever seen him - but the main issue I have is that the pacing is terrible. I think at least 40 minutes could have been cut and made for a much better experience. Otherwise this Gothic-lite tale is really good and effectively icky and deserves better than the reception is got at the box office.

Gore Verbinski takes a break from blockbusters to deliver a stylish and unnerving psychological horror film. The plot may be old-school gothic mystery claptrap but the camerawork and production values more than make up for the familiar trappings.
Dane DeHaan is solid as the ambitious every-man suddenly thrust into a sinister environment overseen by the diabolical doctor (Jason Isaacs) who runs the treatment facility located in the Swiss Alps. It is a well made film but what makes it watchable is the cat-and-mouse mind game played by Dane DeHaan and Jason Isaacs. Isaacs is easily the best part of this movie as far as the acting goes. It is a cliche 'mad scientist' bit role that becomes almost Oscar-worthy thanks to Isaacs' go-for-broke performance.
