It's not terribly original or scary, but it's nice, 1 January 2006
Author: siderite from Romania

Vengeful ghosts return to haunt and destroy the people that caused their death. You might recognize a little of The Ring, as the mother had special mental powers. The ghosts, of course, have that hair effect with the eyes looking ... ghastly.

A nice plot element is that the ghosts in this film really do have purpose, other than just killing and avenging. They do that beautifully, of course, but as a hobby not as a full time job :)

The problem with the film is that it is not scary. The good ideas in the script are not fully capitalized. When people from a small isolated village see their children die inexplicably one would expect great turmoil and a lot of interesting things happening. Alas it was too low a budget to cover for this. Therefore everything in the movie seems shrunk, detached, to fit the budget.

So, it's a nice film to watch for cultists and horror fans, but not a great movie, almost not a good one.
