Jack and Lucy set off for Christmas holidays, united in a family house located in the Scottish mountains. Instead of happiness and celebration they are greeted with an almost dead woman, Margaret, found in the freezing cold outside not too far away from the house. While the two wonder what in heaven's name is going on and who she is, there is a hellish plot brewing, a plot that could claim a life.Written by

A few surprises!
In all honesty, this film moves very slowly. There is talent in the writing and cinematography, but the acting is very bad with the exception of Margaret who plays the old lady. I think a lot more could have come from this film with much better actors.
What I absolutely loved was the soundtrack! I was surprised to find out that this movie was written by a contemporary composer named Antonio Grandanti. Dark and evil orchestrated beautifully with moments of sadness and beauty. Minimalist instrumentation, brilliant harmonies.
The music was the main reason why I kept watching through to the end of the film. I looked online hoping to find the soundtrack to purchase but no luck. :(
Genius. Bravo, Antonio. I hope to hear more music from you!
