Spanish director Alejandro Amenábar is probably best known for the intensely creepy movie “The Others”, with many hoping his latest movie “Regression” would be a return for the chilling work he became known for. Starring Ethan Hawke as Detective Bruce Kenner, “Regression” is set in the small town of Hoyek, Minnesota, in 1990 and follows Angela Gray (played by Emma Watson), who accuses her father of sexually abusing her. Although he has no recollection of doing so, her father John (David Dencik) confesses to the crime and hands himself over to the police.
