Quite entertaining
4 November 2011 | by (Vienna) – See all my reviews

I must admit I am not a big fan of modern horror movies as they tend to overdo the gory part nowadays. Therefor Herzibah was a pleasant surprise to me. It hardly brings any new aspects for a movie about a medieval which and her curse over the years, but it takes a refreshing look into the old genre and takes it into our century. One of the let downs is, that the production is mostly made for TV, so you see a lot of close ups and less of the impressive work of the art department. Lots of details, perfect atmosphere, but it could have been so much more spirit if it would have been made for the big screen. The actors are great, especially young Eleonor Tomlinson in the lead.
