Storyline

Based on the Carnegie Medal winning novel by Margeret Mahy. Sixteen year-old Laura Chant lives with her mother and four-year-old brother Jacko in a poor new suburb on the edge of a partially demolished Christchurch, New Zealand. Laura is drawn into a supernatural battle with an ancient spirit who attacks Jacko and slowly drains the life out of him as the spirit becomes ever younger. Laura discovers her true identity and the supernatural ability within her, and must harness it to save her brother's life.

It just got silly
10 March 2018 | by MikeswansSee all my reviews

From the outset I had high hopes for this film. I love a good New Zealand indie. The cinematography was great, a fantastic soundtrack and not half bad acting. And the story had some promise, but about halfway through it just got silly. The storyline had so many holes and was just unbelievable.

Not the worst movie I've seen and its a fine 90 minutes if you have the time to waste.

As for the first 5 or 6 reviews here giving it 9 or 10/10.. give me a break. Clearly bogus reviews.
