I thought that Regression was a pretty good movie. Though it was slow paced, it still was thrilling in my opinion. The movie is about Rose (Emma Watson), who accuses her family of Satanic Ritual Abuse, and the lead detective on the case (Ethan Hawke) trying to find the truth to what actually happened. As the story plays out, it is hard to tell what the truth is and what is imagination. The detective slowly goes insane, thinking that the devil worshipers are out to kill him and perform the rituals on him as he slept. Eventually he figures out the truth behind all the alleged ritualistic abuse. One thing I didn't like is the ending, nothing came of him finding out the truth.
David mentions in his post that the tagline doesn't make any sense... well I would have to disagree. Because of the things that Ethan Hawke's character finds out from the regression therapies, his fear of those things happening to him grow more and more as the movie goes on. Which in turn slowly strikes fear in the viewer... but ends up just being a figment of imagination for everyone.
Overall, I liked this movie. It kept me on the edge of my seat from both thrill and wonderment of what turn in the story would happen next. I saw that this was based on real events? I'm glad that I was only a baby when this stuff happened.
