Fingerprints is a supernatural horror movie that was released in 2006. The film follows the story of a young woman named Melanie (played by Leah Pipes) who moves with her family to a small town in Texas after her mother's death. Melanie's father is an alcoholic and often neglects her, leaving her to take care of her younger brother.

The small town of Emerald is known for a tragic train accident that occurred several years ago, killing many of its residents. On the first night in their new home, Melanie and her friends decide to play a prank on some of the locals by pretending to be ghosts from the accident. However, things take a turn for the worse when they discover that the ghosts may be real and seeking revenge on the living.

One of the key themes in Fingerprints is guilt. The main characters all have secrets and regrets that haunt them, and the ghosts seem to feed on this guilt. Melanie is especially haunted by the death of her mother and feels guilty for not being able to save her. As the story progresses, the characters are forced to confront their past mistakes and try to find redemption before it's too late.

The film has a slow pace at the beginning, but this works well in building suspense and tension. The creepy setting of the abandoned train tracks and the ghostly apparitions create a haunting atmosphere that is both eerie and captivating. The special effects are also well-done, with the ghostly figures looking convincingly ethereal.

The acting in Fingerprints is solid, with Leah Pipes giving a strong performance as the protagonist. Kristin Cavallari and Josh Henderson also deliver good performances as Melanie's friends. However, the character development could have been stronger, with some of the characters feeling like caricatures rather than fully fleshed-out individuals.

Overall, Fingerprints is a decent horror movie that offers some scares and a unique take on the haunted small town trope. It may not be the most original horror film out there, but it's worth a watch for fans of the genre.

Fingerprints is a 2006 mystery with a runtime of 1 hour and 35 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.9.
