Despite the presence of Sarah Michelle Gellar (pictured), The Return doesn?t feel like your standard teen shocker. It?s also not a remake, but it feels more Asian than most Hollywood horror do-overs: Mellow — nay, snoozy — atmospherics trump actual scares, and it makes almost zero sense. Gellar is a screwy-headed cutter called to a small Texas town, where she is haunted by visions of a dead woman, voices that call her ?Sunshine,? and — in what passes for the major goose-pimple tactic — repeated plays of Patsy Cline?s ”Sweet Dreams.”
