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.''
