2012 Guide Analysis: "After making a name for himself with the high concept low budget "Buried", Rodrigo Cortes takes another crack at the psychological-thriller genre with this tale of sceptics, psychics and the supernatural shot in Spain and Canada. Cortes has previously described the film as being about "how the brain does not give a true picture of reality."

Two paranormal fraud investigators, veteran Dr. Margaret Matheson (Weaver) and her assistant Tom Buckley (Murphy), look into legendary psychic Simon Silver (De Niro) who returns after a mysterious thirty year absence to become the world's greatest challenger to orthodox science. As Tom starts becoming obsessed with Silver, some shocking revelations soon occur.

The draw to this fairly mundane story is a strong cast of talented thesps like "Martha Marcy May Marlene" star Elisabeth Olsen, "Submarine" kid Craig Roberts", "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" smug spymaster Toby Jones in supporting roles. Whether this'll be a bit of a letdown like "Buried" ultimately was - we'll see."
