A true story worth every minute
14 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Saw this film when I was about 14 (now 25), and it's never left my memory.

Excellent movie and adaptation of the true story about the Village of Eyam in Derbyshire which was hit by the plague.

The way the film was made, was of a typical English village where you can really feel the film coming alive.

At times it felt quite scary, when the ghost is first seen, and when one of the 3 kids gets lost in the woods and has to run through the graveyard.

I'd love to watch this film again, but i'm having difficulty finding it. That's how great I thought it was.

Highly recommended to anyone
