Secret Window

In Theatre : Unknown
Director(s):

Johnny Depp gets high off another acting challenge in this tricky adaptation of a Stephen King yarn. Although the mood is too sinister to allow for the mischief of his Pirates of the Caribbean turn, Depp still manages to embroider his role here with plenty of quirky business. He plays a writer, depressed and nearly divorced, who's stuck in an isolated cabin (shades of The Shining) when a stranger (John Turturro) arrives, accusing him of plagiarism.

 Writer-director David Koepp (Stir of Echoes) does his best to make the rickety material compelling--he gets the maximum out of the cabin set, for instance--but the problems inherent in the King story eventually win out. The climactic scenes are particularly unpleasant, especially in contrast to the cleverness of Depp's performance. A Philip Glass score adds class, but this one ultimately feels like a disappointment. --Robert Horton

Secret Window Review by Ash's missing hand

The first shot of the movie is a very cool one. The camera glides across a lake to a cabin. The camera moves in to the shore and through a window of the cabin, looking around various rooms before looking into a large mir...

Allow me to begin with the opening line of the movie: "Do not go back there..." as that is pretty much what I tell myself whenever I think of Secret Window. First off, it's based on the Stephen King novel Secret Window, ...
Secret Window Review by JaNell Fowler

The charm of this film wasn't necessarily the scare factor because by all means its wasn't horribly scary. It acually had the potential to be incredibly dull (and had some lulling moments) but wasn't. Johnny Depp (not on...
