This is one of a kind movie. The story is very simple, 3 friends get lost during a storm and end up in a haunted convent. Although the movie is a little predictable and somewhat moralistic, it keeps you at the edge of your seat all the way long. The movie is intentionally slow and sometimes you wish the characters get out of the tomb - like convent running as fast as they can. As with all the old horror movies, this one depends on acting and atmosphere rather than FX to reach its goal, and it does deliver. You almost can see the shadows walking off the wall and going after the main characters. The monks are quite unnerving, specially the laconic and authoritarian abbot. Although this film is no roller coaster, still is an unforgettable experience
