Superb, lean haunted house pic
14 October 2019 | by sblavinSee all my reviews

I've been on a British horror binge lately, but it took me a while to find out about this one. I'm surprised at the other reviews because I consider it one of the best I've seen in this category. The film is short (~70 mins), and basically one long "night in a haunted house" scene. The writer chose to cut out the usual daytime bits that give viewers chance to relax, while the characters read up on local history or talk to a priest, or whatever they need to do to move the plot forward. There IS a plot, but the heroine has to discover it in the heat of the moment, because the whole film is a single night in a haunted house. The result is a very lean ghost story that keeps the tension simmering and eventually boiling over, without any "down time" for the viewer.

This could be draining and two-dimensional, but luckily, the scary stuff is done very well: the acting, direction, lighting and score all combine to create a very solid effect. I can't imagine they had much of a budget, but nor can I recall any moments when the production really suffered for it. It lives within its means and does what it can to a high standard. None of the scares are original on paper, but they're just very well executed to my eye.

Of course, horror is very personal, and if you aren't scared then you won't enjoy it, because there's frankly very little else to the film. I just thought it was a very well made, scary film with no flab.

I docked one star because I have mixed feelings about the very end of the film. I don't think the final bit added much, and wonder if it (maybe) needlessly muddied the waters, in a film where simplicity had been a virtue. But I've literally just finished watching it, so I'm still turning that over in my mind.
