Goofs

During the first case examined, when the night watchman talks to his Russian counterpart on the radio, his coworker says (in a Russian accent), "we have a word for this back home. It is 'zloslivy.'" The word "zlosliwy" is Polish, not Russian. There is no Russian cognate for it. See more »

Good honest horror
12 August 2018 | by gizzie-40424See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to catch the stage show in the West End a few years ago and I thoroughly enjoyed the live performance. I have just seen the film version and have to say that it creeped me out...a lot. Good performances and great stories. I don't know if seeing the stage show may have helped those who felt that it was up to scratch but everyone is different, yet I still feel this is well worth a watch. Enjoy.
