I thought it was going to be your average horror movie, but it's absolutely not. It's a very heavy drama which deals with such themes as horrors of the motherhood, mental illness and rape. All of this and a paranormal element on top of it which references genocide in concentration camps during Anglo-Boer War in 1901.
The horror scenes are terrifying and very effective. The actors' performances are excellent and add a lot to the overall heavy atmosphere.
