When Johnny first sees the raven, he walks towards it and then it flies away. When the trainer called the raven, it would walk off frame instead of flying. It took many takes to get it to fly.See more »

I give Emma 10+ stars. But, the movie, well..., uh... not so much. Good idea, but not very well done..., 22 July 2013
Author: lathe-of-heaven from Sunny Southern California, USA

I really did honestly try to like this film. I normally do like small little low budget Indie Horror films, I really do. And, I think the premise was just fine. But, sadly, the script just ultimately took it down, I'm afraid. I don't think that the idea was developed very well; and I didn't feel that the direction was all that hot. The movie wasn't HORRIBLE by any means; there was some good camera work and a few suspenseful scenes, but all in all in my lowly and wretched opinion, I just didn't feel that it came together very well.

Now, if you handed a film like this to a director like Ti West, for example, I think someone with his talent could have shaped and improved it substantially. There is nothing specifically awful about the film; some of the performances aren't really that great, but I do think the key with this one would have been having at LEAST a far more talented director who would have seen the weaknesses in the script and corrected them in addition to directing it in a tighter, more effective way.

Now, let's get to the GOOD part...


I know, I know, I'm just being a perv guy here, BUT something about her... I thought that she was quite lovely... (sigh) Anyway, sorry... it is not very often that one of the Hollywood ladies catches my attention to this extent, but THIS one sure did!

Anyway, my humble apologies, back to the film...

So, I can't in all honestly really recommend it; it's just not that great. I was truly hoping for a much better film...
