Ahead of it's time
6 October 2004 | by IrigySee all my reviews

Long before mystery thrillers really got popular again this little gem shows what a great thrilling (or better: shocking) movie one can create. The acting is quite on point and very good, it's convincing and down to earth, the reactions to the happenings are most of the time as you'd expect them, and it's all about acting.

There are almost no special effects (at least not the kind you're used to nowadays), and no real "shock" moments, it's all about the atmosphere that is created, and it's done very well.

Highly recommended if you like mystery thrillers about old dark prophecies coming true. I've seen this movie quite a few times meanwhile and it still keeps me to the edge of my seat.
