Surprisingly Good, 18 August 2004
Author: Davide from Portugal

Although this movie didn't obtain a great success, it is surprisingly good, in fact it is one of the best "soft horror" movies i ever saw.

If you love horror movies involving ghosts, spirits or beings that you never actually get to see in the "flesh" form, you will love this one.

Jane gives a wonderful performance and is as beautiful as she ever was.

One of those movies with such subtle ingredients that will bring some shivers to your back. Music score is perfect too, creating a haunting-mysterious atmosphere around it rare to see in this days horror movies.

As a curiosity, the 90s "Baywatch" TV series had an episode that was almost a replica of the argument in this movie, although a very bad replica indeed.
