The Return Synopsis
A new supernatural thriller starring Sarah Michelle Gellar (“The Grudge,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) as Joanna Mills, a tough young Midwesterner determined to learn the truth behind the increasingly terrifying supernatural visions that have been haunting her. Joanna has made a successful career for herself, as sales representative for a trucking company. But her private life has been difficult; estranged from her father (Sam Shepard), stalked by an obsessed ex-boyfriend (Adam Scott), and with few friends, Joanna fears that she is losing control. She sees and feels the brutal murder of a young woman she’s never met, at the hands of a heartless killer – a man who appears to be making Joanna his next target. Determined to fight back, Joanna is guided by her nightmares to the murdered woman’s hometown. Once there, she will discover that some secrets can’t be buried; some spirits never die; and that the murder she is trying to solve may be her own.
Two Sarah Michelle Gellar thriller/horror films in the same year? I'm really finding it hard to get excited about a sequel to The Grudge. Tack this on and it would seem there's a glut of Gellar fear factor flowing.
On the other hand, this is Focus Features, and while they've had a few mediocre films, by and large they can be counted on for something inventive and enjoyable, if not completely original. Still, I can't help but look at that synopsis and wonder if this is nothing more than fodder for Scary Movie 5. Seriously
