I don't usually write reviews but after watching this film and then looking at the latest reviews posted on here i felt compelled to give this a serious review.
If you like Slasher movies where girls who fall down a lot are being chased by a maniac with a weapon. THIS FILM IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you like Zombie movies with lots of blood and gore. THIS FILM IS NOT FOR YOU.
If you've got the attention span of a goldfish and like to chat to your mates all the way through a movie. (Guess What).
Right now the rantings out the way.
If you like sitting in a dark cinema/room, late at night with no distractions and you like ghost stories, then watch this film. I thought the acting, directing and sound score of this movie all worked really well and that with ghost stories less is more. The odd noise here and there, was that a ghost? or wasn't it? The uncertainty of whether this is real or not is what a ghost story should be all about, yes it's slow but that builds up the atmosphere, which i thought was great and there's some genuinely jumpy parts in the film. Sat here on my own in the dark watching this film had me gripped from start to finish. It's been a long time since i've seen a film this good and i recommend this to anyone who's into ghost stories.
