Not what I expected
Even though I hadn't read the description of this movie before seeing it, it still was not anything like I expected it to be. It was more about the relationships between, the pastor, his wife and the new handyman than about the haunting at Borley Rectory. They do enter into the story, but they aren't the main focus for the first half of the movie. It's actually a pretty good character study of the three people. The other spoiler heavy review outlining the plot only touches the surface of what's offered here. This film moves much more slowly than what we're used to in the United States, particularly for a horror film. It reminds me more of the type of movie that might have been made in the 60's or 70's in the United States. The "special effects" are at about that level too. In my opinion it would have been better had they left out the last scene because the substandard special effects were almost comical and didn't fit the rest of the film. It also added nothing to the story. It seemed like it was there mainly to give the prop guy something fun to do. Aside from that, I thought this was pretty good.
