The story of a young couple haunted by mysterious forces and there looks to be a heavy possession element as well. The calm life of Suat and Nurcan is broken when they begin to be scared by supernatural creatures.

i watched this movie for a two nice stars of Turkey (i knew Selma Ergeç from TV-series Asi and Mehmet Gürsür from L'italiano)
i love Psychological thriller themed movies like Dark Water (japan)and Paranormal Activity and also Ring series both original and US remake so guessing that i can review this title better.
Frankly speaking movie is very weak when we compare with that kind of movies. But in Turkey we hardly see that kind of weakness and quality. Our thrillers are the slashers of 70s US cinema you don't want to remember.
i should say screen-editing is good but actors voice acting sometimes not so persuasive and i felt like words not true. For a movie like this voice acting is far more important ,like in dramas.
By the way you can still watch this movie without great expectations so you can see a good short-movie tasted and a nice try of something in quality , which seen rarely on Turkey ,but not yet finished in any terms. 5/10.
