Storyline

After a car accident, Lizzie lies dead on the roadside - slowly she is taken into the light - but is pulled back to earth when she is revived by the doctors. Lizzie feels sure that during the 184 seconds that she lay dead, something latched on to her and came back into her world. The nightmares and visions that follow only crystallize her belief that she should have died in the crash... Then the disturbances start, at first merely tappings and bad smells - but soon the activity escalates. Lizzie seems to be the focus, but according to others, she's just playing games for attention. Only when Kate, her mother, is confronted with inexplicable events does she face the possibility that they may be the victims of a poltergeist infestation. Written by Anonymous

Superb film, worth seeing again....
10 July 2001 | by WolfsbaneSee all my reviews

The film is excellent, on par with many other of it's like, of poor budget and poor material, yet arousing so many questions in the viewers head.

It seeks to deal with many different elements of society, from the culture around us, the poverty of many families in Scotland, to the trauma that can be inflicted upon the neglected young.

Although the film does take up perhaps too many elements, it leaves you thinking about so many different things, it really does get the Grey Cells going, as it were, rather than just a 'sit back, no thought required' film, and to be honest, this is the style I prefer.

Heather Ann Foster in her first big-screen debut is a stunning actress, bringing across perfectly the balance between the insanity her character suffers and the torments she faces from society around her. Excellent casting on the Producers part, and excellent, 100% performance from Heather Ann Foster, I for one will be following her career more closely since this stunning piece.
