Storyline is okay, twist is pretty nice but script is poorly written.
18 February 2014 | by Lovet187See all my reviews

This movie is about two journalists and one photographer from the America that is going to a polish village to investigate a disappearance of a collage student.

The movie environment are similar to the environment in "the village" (2004) and "Population 436" (2006). And The shrine do contain some occult/paranormal elements.

Overall this movie will give you some shivers and some scenes are quite uncomfortable. But you wont see anything special or anything you haven't seen before. Some "scrary" scenes are not scary at all because you know something is going to happened.

You will get really frustrated at the main characters, not because how they act but more because of all the stupid decisions they end up choosing. I know some will say/think that stupid script for actors behavior are necessary for a horror but in my opinion a great horror is when the actors do what ever they can (and everything you would do) but it still end up in helpless or scary situations.

I would say that is the worse thing about this move and it's really annoying. It's like: run when your suppose to hide, scream when your suppose to be quiet and all like that.

The storyline is classic and solid, the move environment are good, but the script of the actors behavior are so poorly written. If you cant make a horror without making retarded characters then don't make it IMO.

The twist are also nice, it's not a "smash in your face" twist but it's still pretty nice.

I would recommend you to see this move when you have nothing else to do and with no expectations. Don't see this movie at a Friday night with your friends or at your first date, it will just make you all bored and you wont have anything to talk about after it ends.
