All horror films are terrible once the plot gets going because everything's so forced for the shock or fore. I thought this was no exception, but at least the bit before that is interesting.
It's an unlikely group of characters as friends but it's nice to see people over 25 being treated like sexual, and sexually attractive, beings. All the cast do a good job, even if the leading men ham it up a little.
Whatever they did with the colour balance is a nice touch, it's both coldly atmospheric and festive simultaneously. The camera angles aren't boldly innovative but they're effective. Same goes for the soundtrack.
Only, after the predictably interesting start, it didn't get less interesting. I was expecting this to be predictable but it kept me guessing. I'm not going to rave about it but I was pleasantly surprised.
It's not Tarkovsky but it's enjoyably spooky.
