a supernatural fairy tale with goosebumps guaranteed!
23 March 2010 | by johnoshinesSee all my reviews

This is a must see!! At under two hours long, it does slow a little in the middle but wait and be prepared to be shocked and moved as the mystery unravels just after half way through. It will probably give you goosebumps if you're not thick skinned - but that's good right!

It revolves around a creepy family of children in a strange cottage in the woods, the adults they snare keep disappearing, when our main guy appears they take to him but he cant leave... they wont let him! The art department is fantastic! Watch this with some fairy cakes and sweets and you'll feel like you are there.

To sum it up: Everything about this film is wonderful! It just oozes class, the story is a nice mix of supernatural fantasy fairy tale with a small injection of psychological horror.
