very reasonable low budget Brit Horror.
30 May 2020 | by jackstupidjackSee all my reviews

This actually surprised me a little, for a low budget flick, the acting is top notch if you can get past the 'American' accent of the male protagonist, the story flows coherently,makes reasonable sense throughout,which builds nicely to the spooky moments. The 'Jack' character is admirby spooky and wonderfully acted out, not over used in any way, which can sometimes be a flaw in films of this ilk. overall, the film works well, which could be considered a triumph for the makers, as clearly the budget was minimal, yet that isn't always reflected in the end product. all plaudit to cast and crew, who have pulled one of the 'Holy Grails' of the filmmaking world. of making a solid film on a tiny budget.
