No, this isn't the ungodly sequel to that dreadful teeny-bopper Vampire franchise.  The Eclipse is a new inappropriately titled Irish film (probably titled as such in an attempt to cash-in on the aforementioned pile of cinematic fluff) that is a love story with a peppering of ghostly encounters.

The film focuses on widower Michael Farr (Ciarán Hinds), a teacher who is raising his son and daughter all by his lonesome after his wife's death.  Currently he works as a volunteer for an international literary festival in town and is assigned to chauffer around supernatural writer Lena Morelle (Iben Hjejle).  Haunted by late night sights and sounds (which are terrifying I might add) of his dead wife and father-in-law (who isn't even dead yet), Michael confides in Lena after the two build up somewhat of a bond.  With Lena being an expert in ghosts and the supernatural, Michael hopes she may shed some light on the frightening apparitions.  Their systematic relationship is however diverted, when she runs into a fling from her past.  This former fling is also a novelist, Nicholas Holden (Aiden Quinn) who is also attending the literary festival.  Lena has moved on from their affair, but it seems as if Nicholas won't take no for an answer. As Michael's ghostly terrors increase they are further aggravated by the suicide of his wife's father.  Now he must wrestle with his thoughts while juggling the situation between Lena, Nicholas and himself.

Going into
The Eclipse I was expecting a ghostly horror film in the vein of The Others. My expectations were partly met -- what I got was a romantic flick with some instances of quality chills.  Michael's ghostly visions are hair-raising.  The film does have the atmosphere of a horror movie, much of which has to do with the film's Irish backdrop.  Cinephiles with a taste for all genres should find plenty to like in this one, but if you're looking for a spine-tingling ghost story (as the back cover suggests) than you're best to look elsewhere.  Even so, the odd mix of love story and ghost story make for a unique experience, and an overall good film.

Magnolia Home Entertainment brings
The Eclipse to Blu-ray with a 1080p 16X9 unusual 2.00:1 aspect ratio on a 25GB disc.  Visually the film looks excellent.  The audio is of equal praise with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.  The extras here are sparse but we do get a 'Making of The Eclipse' which runs 28-minutes in length, the brief 'HDNet: A Look at The Eclipse' and trailers for The Warlords, Mother, Survival of the Dead and Red Cliff.
