A nifty little film that balances dark fantasy and horror. The title should give you a good idea of what to expect (24 doors need to be opened, each one affect the lead character's life), but the film still holds some nice surprises. The direction is inspired, the film is very atmospheric, performances are more than solid and the finale is perfect. Not quite a core genre flick, not truly an auteur's signature, but a refined film that puts its spin on a series of tired genre clich├ęs.
