Storyline

Martha, an emotionally fragile mother, who moves to a remote Irish village with her husband Tomas following the tragic death of their baby daughter. Whilst there, the couple decide to take in a disturbed and orphaned autistic girl called Daisy. Uncommunicative and greatly scarred by the violent death of her parents, Daisy gradually warms to her new surroundings. But, as a series of strange occurrences begin to be linked to the little girl, Martha and Tomas begin to hear rumors from the locals that Daisy might be something far more malevolent than she seems.

English couple move to Ireland after the death of there child and find themselves fostering a problem child.
23 June 2010 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This had to be one of the worst movies I have seen. From beginning to end it was predictable I can't remember the number of times I was able to "call" what happened next.

Plot and Script very "High School". Would advise anyone not to bother and take a pass on this one.

At the beginning I had hopes for something like "The Wicker Man" but the similarities ended at the accent.

I don't know what more I can say about this movie I feel like I just wasted the last hour and 20 min and I hope this review will dissuade at least one person from wasting there time watching it. This is a definite pass 3 thumbs down in this room.
