Agree... this was an excellent surprise treat. Had a feeling I wasn't going to enjoy this but boy was I wrong. Tense, moody, chilling and dark. A very impressive movie that handled demons and ghosts with a subtlety that's rarely seen in the era of easy CGI. Well acted, superbly shot and utterly comp...

Pretty, some solid performance and some nice little touches... but the story just didn't grab me, which meant the whole experience felt slow and tedious. Plus I guessed the ending pretty much from the get go so I was left waiting for the inevitable reveal.

Sweetest film at Fright Fest (not saying much I know!)... but seriously, a beautiful, touching movie...

Loved the head sinking in the pool!

Though I can agree this wasn't a good film... I still liked it. Despite all the problems with plot, sound, pacing and performances, it charmed me.

Had quite high hopes for this one and, despite it not being what I was expecting, it really lived up to expectations.

Think everyone was cheering during that final escape...

Completely taken by surprise by this one... probably one of my favourite moments! Not had that much fun watching a movie in a long time. Rockabilly Zombies running rampant. Oh what glorious madness. Can agree on the lack of likeable victims, but thinking that, much like in Tales From the Crypt etc, ...
