Short movie with a pleasant haunting
30 March 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A young couple move into a large badly maintained house due to housing shortage. As ghostly events happen, they invite a friend to help them examine the house. The mystery deepens as they find clues about the houses former occupants, a Spanish occultist and his wife who left him for a sailor.

The pace of the film is a little slow, but none the less it is pleasant enough. Not a scary film, more of a mystery. With, of course, a twist at the end. Worth spending 40mins on a rainy afternoon. The cinematography is very average, nothing about the cuts or angles suggest the urgency the characters are portraying. The acting is sound, and very British.
