Rather tired and lifeless supernatural horror offering
17 September 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

A group of friends gathering a friend's large mansion to dabble in the black arts find themselves under attack by a series of supernatural attacks related to one's purchase of a cursed artifact.

Agonizingly slow Gothic effort, probably slower because of the language barrier but even still, the amount of ghostly activity in this one isn't high at all and really doesn't have a whole lot to do anyway, leaving this to consist of endless scene-after-scene of them standing around talking to each other in different rooms around the house about what's going on. When it gets to the good stuff, namely the séance scenes, this one becomes all the better since it's all first-rate stuff, and those séances are just magical all around without much improvement to be done on them. Though, without a lot of horror elements to be found, this one doesn't have any real lasting impact at all.
