Hélène de Fougerolles,
Karen, Sarah, and Emma Tunney are all moving to a small town in Pennsylvania where, unknown to them, in 1913, a horrid mine accident trapped dozens of children alive, underground. But there's a problem. They're still alive.
Chloë Grace Moretz

Just a few minutes after Nick's fallen in the water his t-shirt looks suspiciously dry. His shirt keeps changing from this point on. Holes appear and disappear, a white stain appears between shots and it keeps switching between wet and dry. See more »
The wind that shakes the Reeds is a subtle 1980s vibe
A horror that looks like high-grade 1980s output, which made it spooky and nostalgic in equal measure - the 16mm explains the nostalgic bit.
On the positive, the young main characters are attractive - I dug Laura (magazine girl Anna Brewster) and her Kate Moss delivery - very London
and the set up is nicely done, hinting at yikesy things to come,
which they do.
On the negative side, I wasn't really sure about the movie's central message, but I did like the hook - yes, there is a comparison to Triangle definitely, but this is different again.
I'd say that this is not a wide theatrical release type movie but that it's pretty good and quite creepy watching it late at night within the comfort of your own home. Most of the acting makes it feel very natural, very real, and you can (if you shut your eyes and click your heels three times) almost imagine yourself there in amongst those razor-sharp greeny reeds wondering where everyone else is...
