Good production same old story.
27 August 2017 | by imranakiSee all my reviews

It was very well done, mood, camera works, acting and especially the music.

However, it was the same old story of spirits wanting for the truth to be told. Why couldn't have this been just about the psychological effects of a traumatized child who was suppressing her memories and the truth. And then later in life as she was stronger and able to face it was remembering what really happened.

why bring the supernatural into such a beautifully shot movie with an excellent music score and this scary mood they were able to create even without the introduction of ghosts. This movie was scary enough without the spirits and ghosts they later got involved into the movie. All the supernatural could have been her dreams or subconscious trying to help her remember and face the truth and see who the monster in real life was.

Any ways, I enjoyed it and give it 5 out of 10 only for all the hard work in everything they did except for the actual story. Movie makers, sometimes a simple story is a better story. 5 out of 10 for me is a very watchable movie i am stingy at scoring levels.

I recommend this movie to drama watchers, art lovers and ghost/spirit story lovers. Horror fans stay away and their wasn't much mystery as I had already guessed what happened half way in the movie.
