A film with climax.
12 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

When I started watching this film had the idea that it would be more horror/Terror turned to psychological than to surprise, shock , it was like that , which in my view he managed to stand out in the genre , as well as The witch.

The plot involved me from the middle to the end , the plot made ​​me really the climax with his photography and lighting, which incidentally, are noteworthy. The performances are also favorable , especially bathtub scene . The soundtrack is simple (no exuberant moments ) leaving most of the environment and sound that, at least in this film is good, it was more that made ​​me enter the atmosphere . Note eight because of good photography , lighting and acting.
