Boring and disappointing
30 November 2014 | by aldebaran68See all my reviews

The only reason I give it 4 is because I like both Aiysha Hart and Razane Jammal. Both did the best they could with a poor script and shoddy directing. As for 'horror'?, I didn't see any. Not even remotely. Just a lot of disjointed scenes, no atmosphere, no chemistry, nothing to talk about. I enjoyed Aiysha Hart in her scenes, speaking Arabic; those were high points of the film for me. poor Razane looked at sea most of the time. Shame. Could have been a much better film with more effort from the director, imagination and maybe even a bigger budget...? Most of the story was predictable. There was little emotional content even around the theme of the dead baby. There was no atmosphere to connect the so called 'horror' to any emotional response by the actors. All very disconnected.Worth watching for the Arabic language scenes.
