You say. What?

Restrained, effectively eerie, and incredibly well-acted
Totally surprising. Finally, there's been some good horror films this year but none all that great, and I finally found it (that is, if I don't count Under The Skin as horror). The pacing in this is really excellent, and it follows the old-school rule of what it doesn't show us is scarier. It's not incredibly original by any means, but it also doesn't fall into old weary horror clichés and it's all pretty grounded. This is in part due to the script and the really elegant and observant direction, but also because of the two fantastic lead performances. Rose Leslie certainly made her mark in Game of Thrones, and she's one to watch out for in the future. She's incredibly effective here, as is Harry Treadaway. Their chemistry is strong and it's about time we get some great acting in a horror film. This is truly well-acted and engrossing horror, not to mention actually scary. Might just be one of my favorite films the year so far
