very pleasantly surprised!!!
2 June 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

just watched this film tonight and joined IMDb subsequently due to how impressed i was. got home from work late and turned the lights off and put the horror on. film flew by from start to finish. i watch a lot of horrors and think about eighty percent are rubbish, however this was very engrossing. acting all round was excellent(didn't expect that) and story was kind of believable which is odd for this type of film. very intelligently made film. everything made sense from start to finish. short sweet and to the point film. no messing about. i don't like drawn out two hour plus films. no comedy in the film which i like. if i want to watch a comedy, i pick a comedy. not the best film i seen in my life but for what it is, very impressive. well, I'm kind of to the point myself so hope anyone who watches it enjoys it. doubt anyone could dislike it. and congratulations to anyone involved in the film and hope there's bigger projects in the pipeline.
