Review

Atmospheric and creepy and very well made. I’ve read elsewhere people are saying this is slow and arty. I didn’t find it to be like that all. If anything it’s really well paced and easy to follow.

Excellent acting all round and more family drama than supernatural horror. Don’t expect Jason or Freddy style gore, it’s all about atmosphere.

3.5 Stars (3.5 / 5)
