Directed bySam Raimi

Written byBilly Bob Thornton, Tom Epperson

Year: 2000

Plot: Somewhere in the bayou, where every tree has a beard, widowed Annie (Blanchett) supports herself and her three kids by reading cards and doubling as emergency psychic clinic for the badly abused. When a young woman, about to be married, vanishes and turns up dead, Annie is swept into the murderous affair.

Pros: Atmospheric without overdoing it. Ribisi is fenomenal!

Cons: Keanu Reeves thrashes through this movie like a wound-up tin alligator.
