The film doesn't break any new ground, and with a few tweaks, it could have packed a far greater punch.

Decent payoffs for those who are interested in playing along -- and willing to contend with a few slow spots in the mid-section.

Where the story leads is so disappointing-and hackneyed-it makes the entire journey feel like an enormous waste of time.

Open Grave starts off well enough, but soon finds itself as lost and confused as its amnesiac characters.
