Goofs

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 »

Well this is a strange movie
21 February 2018 | by seanfinnauSee all my reviews

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.
