The once-talented Mr. Polanski is hard to spot.

What are people saying?
What are critics saying?
About as scary as a sock-puppet re-enactment of "The Blair Witch Project," and not nearly as funny.
Amusing, ultra-deadpan entertainment. The director was lucky enough to have a cast who were in on the joke and tuned in to his wavelength.
A nonsensical mishmash.
Never quite becomes unwatchable.
A supernatural thriller that is neither super, natural, nor thrilling.
A film not even a star as foxed and foxy as Johnny Depp himself could save.
Elegant, scary fun.
Compulsively watchable and its occasional lapses into that familiar Polanskian overkill are almost charming.
