We gave it a B

Director Philip Ridley’s first movie since 1995’s The Passion of Darkly Noon, Heartless stars Jim Sturgess (21) as Jamie, a troubled young man with a large heart-shaped birthmark on his face. One trip to a demon later, he’s blemish-free. Alas, the price of the devilish dermabrasion proves surprisingly high — to Jamie, if not the audience. Unpredictability isn’t this horror film’s strength, but it’s stylishly crafted and excellently acted, and it boasts an abundance of heart in every sense of the word.
