As mentioned by other members, nothing special and the conclusion was predictable. Unfortunately the cast was underutilized and the premise somewhat average.

A menacing stranger appears on a writer's front doorstep and accuses him of plagiarizing his work, and things soon take a sinister turn in yet another adaptation of a Stephen King novel. Just what the world needs. Actually the ever watchable Depp heads a good cast and there are some nice directorial touches. Unsurprisingly all the flaws lie in the source material; anyone who has seen Angel Heart or Fight Club (ie virtually everybody) will see the twist coming a mile off, but it is executed with some style. Not bad.

Average thriller, with a predictable ending. The journey to the end was made better by Depp's performance.

Jonny Depp stars in this Stephen King-based story as Mort Rainey, a reclusive writer who lives with his dog in a cabin near a lake. The opening sequence of the story is a flashback 6 months earlier where he discovers his wife Amy Rainey (Maria Bello) in bed with another man Ted Milner (Timothy Hutton) so Mort moves away from the city to somewhere in the country. Whilst there he meets a dangerous stranger named John Shooter (John Turturro). Claiming Mort has plagiarized his short story, the psychotic Shooter demands justice.

Secret Window

This is about a published writer, Mort Rainy (Johnny Depp), who is threatened by a guy called John Shooter, who claims that Rainy plagiarised his story: Secret Window. He leaves HIS story, whihc HE wrote, on his doorstep, for Mort to see, and after reading it, he realizes that it is exactly the same as his story, even though he didn't plagiarise it. After finding his dog, a witness who saw John with Mort, and Mort's bodyguard dead, he realizes it is serious. But then killing his wife (they were in the process of getting a divorce), and her new boyfriend, you find that Shooter is him. He is Schitzophrenic.

This was quite a simple film, in a way, because it basically went round in circles. But I loved the ending, it was really good. I didn't really appreciate seeing Mort's dog in such a...

The Secret Window Movie Review

Warning Contains Spoiler

The Secret Window Review

Beautifully written and directed by the great David Koepp The Secret window has finally been produced into a full length feature film. Based off the spooky and intense novel by the horrific mastermind better know as Stephen King, this movie will keep your mind busy from the moment the movie begins to a few days later when you are still sorting it out. This movie brings out a new side of Johnny Depp, he is not a courageous pirate or loving candy man but simply a schizophrenic writer who encounters various problems occurring in his life. Filled with twits and turns the movie is a nice alternative to extremely graphic and horrific physiological thrillers.
The director does a great job enchaining the movie with simple techniques. K...
