So so...
25 May 2003 | by valdezlopezSee all my reviews

I read a small article about this title on a magazzine. It was hailed as being in the middle of The Others (Alejandro Amenábar) and Rosemary's Baby (Roman Polansky). I rest my case.

With those recommendations, I expected a little bit more. No, not gorish images, or special effects, or unexpected twists. Because none of that appears.

I waited for memorable characters, or memorable scenes. None of which appears either.

It was a rather... -fair- movie. I didn't waisted my time watching it, but it sure felt I was fooled by the article that talk about it.
