The novel is considered a metaphysical thriller, and our film could be considered the same, though it also can be thought of in more classical cinematic terms a psychological and supernatural thriller.

I didn't enjoy the novel in the first place but good Lord this is really a piece of junk. The movie made me laugh and for all the wrong reasons. Everything looks cheap and tawdry. Thin plot, the main actor should be changing job and this Ularu girl has a bright future in portraying the bad girl with a thing for flashing her body and showcasing a dominant role in 'those activities'
