In 1921, England is overwhelmed by the loss and grief of World War I. Hoax exposer Florence Cathcart visits a boarding school to explain sightings of a child ghost. Everything she believes unravels as the 'missing' begin to show themselves.
A psychologist is gradually broken down to the point of no return in his life; but was it his work or his past that sends him over the edge, to do the most unthinkable things. All of this happens to him in the middle of chaos breaking out during the London riots.

I love a ghost movie that incorporates a few extra twists when you least expect it. This British horror flick is an example of how to give enough scares but also give the audience the chance to be drawn into a world of torment and sadness. The English countryside was stunning in the location used and I liked the subtle dark tones used here. The cast was solid especially the two leads and the character who played the mother was very convincing at times. This will get a broad audience because of the genre but also simply because it's a good watch. It's nice to see a ghost/horror/drama with no gore but it's not needed if you have the right fear and atmospheric feel which it did.
I really liked this film and it was set up for a potential Sequel.
