Good intentions
26 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie has very good intentions and the photography (camera work) that is done here is great. The acting is also very good and both those elements mixed together, they create a very good and spooky mood for the movie.

But the pacing is too slow. Even for a movie that does feed on that fact, that the viewer should be getting time for the whole movie to unfold. But I do think that this sort of idea could've been made as short story/movie and it would have worked even better. Although if you liked the movie Unbreakable by M. Night Shyamalan, you will also enjoy this one! They're similar, not story-wise, but pacing-wise!
