Deathwatch (2002, GBR/GER/FRA/ITA) C-94m. SCOPE ** D: Michael J. Bassett. Starring Jamie Bell, Rúaidhrí Conroy, Mike Downey, Laurence Fox, Andy Serkis, Hugo Speer, Hugh O'Conor. On a WW1 battlefront several British soldiers find refuge in a German trench. Soon they find that it seems to be haunted. The minds of the men begin to crack. Dense atmosphere keeps this fairly interesting. An adequately acted, often too pretentious mixture of war and horror film, written by first-time director Bassett.
