A slow burner with some fantastic visuals and imagery. It probably needed a bit more to the story to make it a great film and I did wonder if something had been lost in translation at the end? Thought the lead actress did a very good job. 7 / 10
No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.

The location scout deserves a special mention; every location was, beautiful, eerie, perfect.
And what did they say the minuscule budget was 16,000 Euro??? Maybe we misheard.
As you say, a little more story; some more of this priest chap? would not have gone amiss.
Excellent film.

i think they said 50k.

visually arresting, but story wise there's not much to go on about. it had that Tarkowsky-esque long takes where nothing really happens, but supposedly signifies deeper meanings. i thought dialogue was really bad and acting horrible, but it is really impressive debut. i'd love to see these guys working on some solid script.

i thought they said 15,000 euro's.

slow burner is the word on this one.

art house type with a good idea about being able to know what the other person is thinking by entering their mind via a voo doo type spell !!

While it was on if you read my mind you would have learned i was thinking about my tea and these seats in the prince charles cinema are lovely !

its only because iam not as intelligent as i should be to enjoy this though....great job on low budget but it wont tear your soul apart or be in the multiplex any time soon.

but for my credit i didnt want to watch demonic by ....cough......james wan !

I liked the look of this film a lot, but I get the feeling that the positives about this movie rest on the visual appearance more than the strength of the plot. The acting was average at best. I was enjoying it at the beginning, but then it just lost its way and nothing much seemed to happen. I lost patience with it and fell asleep in parts as there was nothing to really keep me engaged. 3/10 for me.
