Vivica A. Fox,
The "Bog Man" is heard speaking occasionally throughout the movie. A lot of what he says is nothing other than grunting, but several phrases are actually modern Irish, specifically, "Uisce" (water) and "Saoirse" (freedom, usage is unrelated to the name of the female lead). See more »

Let me start by saying "I love Vinnie Jones." That being said, this movie is not up to his regular standards. The bog histories, if they were true, were interesting. The concept of people from thousands of years ago being killed and buried in the bogs was interesting. Them reanimating just out of the blue and seeking out a specific kind of person, that's a little iffy. Also the fact that all of these people just happen to converge on this same cottage on the same day is just too much coincidence as is not having phone service when they were apparently only about three miles from a road. I did not like the little love connection they felt needed to be in the movie. It added nothing to the story. This is in no way a horror movie. It is more something that is based on a false lore that has been told for years. Seeing Vinnie Jones was it's only redeeming feature.
