Demi Moore stars as Rachel Carlson, a successful novelist who heads to a remote Scottish island after the tragic death of her seven year old son. Rachel soon settles in and embarks on a romance with lighthouse keeper, Angus McCulloch. Rachel then begins receiving ghostly messages from her dead son and to make matters worse, the islanders inform her that new lover Angus has been dead for seven years. What is it that Rachel's son has to say?

The film has absolutely stunning scenery and photography, so was a complete joy to watch from start to finish thanks to its autumnal tones, windswept coastlines and the equally beautiful score.

Aesthetics aside, the film does have a good story and a well crafted and unpredictable denouement but it drags a little in the middle, which is a shame as the filmmakers could easily have trimmed 15 minutes off the running time.

The cast are all likeable and do good jobs and in the end itís a decent thriller for an evening viewing. In conclusion, Half Light manages to be somewhat original despite its initial overuse of recycled ideas.
