Uncanny, absorbing, hypnotizing
28 July 2011 | by katerinaspilkovaSee all my reviews

Impressively directed and acted, with its astounding cinematography and production design work, memorable performances, an astonishing soundtrack and a nightmarish, absorbing atmosphere filled with really unique and original images not seen before, this uncanny witch tale succeeds in hypnotizing the viewer from start to finish. There are a number of stunning moments that convincingly demonstrate how thin the line between fairytale and horror actually is. Beautiful Eleanor Tomlinson, now deservedly on her way to big stardom, pulls us right into the story and her haunted mind. I was lucky enough to see the uncut, original English version during the American Film Market under its altered title THE VILLAGE and hope the movie will be finally released on DVD.
