An exiting psychological movie after a long time!!
I haven't reviewed any films here (except for some TV series), but for this movie i had to.
This is an excellent work from the director Mike Flanagan in a horror genre. Well written story, even though at first it may feel old concept, just after 10 min after the start you will be completely inside the story. More than the spine chilling moments there are a lot of psychological elements that will bring goose bumps. Another highlight is the wonderful acting though camera work should have been better. Karen Gillan looks cute throughout and Brenton Thwaites leaves an impression.
I loved this movie, don't go with negative reviews. Go watch it, worth every penny. Better than all of paranormal activity movies.
