Excellent
19 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the past I thought only the British could make a good ghost story. I was wrong. This is a wonderfully dark, atmospheric movie that thrills, chills and even in moments, sparks a giggle. My only regret is that it's not (yet) available in DVD format. Perhaps that will be rectified. In the meantime if you love ghost stories as much as I do you'll need to add this one to your collection. Kristy McNichol plays an endearing part as a budding writer and possible love interest of Terry O'Quinn who plays a widowed writer who buys a house and is soon confronted by his past ... his forgotten past. It's a really great story and an excellent movie all around. Well written, beautiful photography, and excellent acting which is unusual these days. Hope to see this one on DVD one day!
