The Number 23

Saw The Number 23 tonight. Wow. Without scary puppets, zombies, ghosts, chainsaws, airborn viruses, demon possession, or other standard gimmicks, this film qualifies as a genuine thriller and the real terrifying twist is the mostly plausible ending. Jim Carrey proves that he is capable as a dramatic actor and The Number 23 demonstrates that a slightly mystical, moderately paced whodunnit psychodrama can captivate audiences and stimulate the imagination. 23 shows the power of the human mind and how, like all great forces, that power can thrill, heal, and terrify. Definitely a Must See.
