Very creepy story
31 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first I wasn't sure about this movie. I have a problem with movies that require you to read the subtitles but this turned out to be a very good movie despite that.

I honestly kept thinking this story was going in a different direction, so it really caught me by surprise once you figured out what was really happening.

The flashbacks can get confusing sometimes, but it was very well woven into the storyline.

I won't say anything more about the story. You really should go into this one knowing nothing about it.

A very good psychological thriller all the way to the end.
