"If No One Believes You, How Can You Warn Them?"
The solomon family has left the fast paced life of chicago for the secluded world of a north dakota farm. Amidst the tranquil sway of the farms field of sunflowers, jess, 16, soon realizes how terrifying seclusion can be when she and her brother ben, 3, begin seeing ominous apparitions invisible to everyone else.

"...shot for shot, the Pangs might be the most terrifying filmmakers alive.  Matt Zoller Seitz, The New York Times
"...a pastiche of successful horror films past--"The Grudge," "The Sixth Sense," "The Birds," "The Amityville Horror"...  Scott Tobias, The Onion A.V. Club

Editor's Note
Twin filmmakers Danny and Oxide Pang's creepy 2003 feature THE EYE earned them enough kudos to make the leap to Hollywood, and their first effort is the creepy chiller THE MESSENGERS. A Chicago-based family comprised of Roy (Dylan McDermott), his wife, Denise (Penelope Ann Miller), their teenage daughter, Jess (Kristen Stewart), and young son, Ben (played by twins Evan and Theodore Turner) try to put the hard times behind them with a move to a picturesque farmhouse in North Dakota. Jess quickly becomes convinced that the house is haunted after some peculiar occurrences while she's alone there with young Ben. But Ben can't articulate what he's seen, and Jess's story is met with skepticism by her parents. It soon becomes apparent that past family tensions are slowly boiling to the surface. Meanwhile, the ghosts keep coming, and the Pang brothers never keep their audience waiting for long before another nerve-jangling scene shudders into view. But as the ghosts torment their new residents, Jess does a little research on the old farmhouse and discovers a few secrets that may just hold the key to why this is all happening. Packed full of CGI effects and a few moments that may cause a jump or two, THE MESSENGERS is a horror movie aimed at a young audience and not horror aficionados, as indicated by its PG-13 rating.

Expert Review The Messengers - DVD Review
By: Brian Holcomb Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 6/7/2007 6:14 PM
Here's what The Messengers uses for it's story: Roy (Dylan McDermott) and Denise (Penelope Ann Miller) have packed up their family and moved to a really absurdly run down Munsters-like haunted house in North Dakota (played by Canada) because they think this is the best way to reform their "troubled" teenage daughter, Jess (Kristen Stewart). Jess is upset over having to leave behind all her friends to live in American Gothic-land while her dad hires John (John Corbett), who steps out of nowhere and is just way too nice. He helps Roy plant sunflowers. Seriously. These guys are sunflower farmers. ...read the full review

The Guardian 7 of 10
Like Takashi "The Grudge" Shimizu, Hong Kong's cult horror directors Oxide and Danny Pang have been brought inside the Hollywood tent by producer Sam Raimi for their first English-language feature. It's pretty ordinary genre stuff, written by US screenwriters who cut their teeth on the Friday the 13th franchise. The result is a cross between videogame-style American horror and Asian-extreme exotica: gaunt midwest farmhouses infested with horrid imps with black hair and grey skin doing their creepy, creaky heavy breathing. - Peter Bradshaw
