Backtrack

BacktrackAdrien Brody plays a psychologist whose life is thrown into turmoil when he discovers that the patients he has been seeing are ghosts. Risking his own sanity, he delves into his past to uncover a terrifying secret which only he can put right. (R – 90 minutes)

“Backtrack” has got some decent ideas but, unfortunately, none of them are exclusively its own. The new psychological thriller is reminiscent of too many of its genre predecessors, emerging as more or less a variation on a well-worn theme. At first, the mystery at the center of the story is enough to keep viewers engaged – if only slightly. But when the answers start corporealizing, interest wanes as the other elements are unable to sustain in the enigma’s absence. Star Adrien Brody gives a strong performance despite the film’s flaws but that only demonstrates he deserves much better.
