Only a horrifying film should be refered to as a "horror" film, and this movie certainly goes above and beyond what i expected. It contains everything that a horror movie should have; a creepy atmosphere (you have that feeling where you know there's just something not right about it from the get go), eerie music (this is what ties it all together so perfectly and keeps you looking over your shoulder. You can still hear the sound effects and demonic voices when you go to bed), the characters (you have to have good actors that are convincing in a serious film. With the presence of the two main characters in the intro, you know what you're instore for. You have the psychotic mother who was previously released from a mental ward, and a little girl who decievingly appears to be "normal", but is either possessed by evil spirits or just plain morbid), and last but not least an original story. Even to give a summary of the plot would not do the movie justice. But one thing is evident, this film is too abstruse for your general viewer of todays standards.....you know who you are. This wonderful creation just goes to prove you don't have to be a hollywood writer to be remarkable.....actually you should stray as far from hollywood as possible.
