A young man and his three younger siblings, who have kept secret the death of their beloved mother in order to remain together, are plagued by a sinister presence in the sprawling manor in which they live.
Three brothers and a sister have just lost their mother. After her death they fear to be separated, so to protect themselves and prevent this from happening they decide to flee to an abandoned farm, a place that is not what it seems, because it hides a dark secret between its walls.

The mock-up of an English newspaper says "10.000 £ missing". An actual English-language paper would say, "£10,00 missing". The use of "." for a separator rather than "," and the placement of the pound sterling sign at the end betrays its European (Spanish) origin. See more »

On the one hand its beautifully made the cinematography, direction acting and sound design is great.
Where the movie is let down sadly is a frankly underdeveloped story which fizzles out after the predictable tweest at the end that would make M Night Shamaylan blush.
Is it worth a watch? Absolutely if you liked the Orphanage and want a bit of a different horror movie thats more of a slow boil then a balls to the wall action horror movie like the over rated It remake.
The ending isnt the weakest part of the movie by the way its the twist before it, the ending itself is charming and quite nice but as other reviewers have said it is a definite weak point of the story.
