After watching this movie I needed to wake up. This movie is slow and a little bit boring, but some scenes are scary and some scenes are just playing silly. Good sound, the story is okay and the acting is not good.

British horror that has some great visuals (and owes a lot to Turn of the Screw) but has an ending I know I didn't see coming. Although it moves a bit too slow for my tastes (it is British after all) for a ghost story, it works out pretty well.

Great movie with lots of twists. Something to watch on a rainy day or at nighttime with the lights off, setting the mood for this one. Wonderfully setting in a Old mansion and giving a creepy vibe even in the day time. The twist at the end is worth watching twice to make sure you understood..

Amazing, but this movie is even better to watch again after knowing the main twist - because all the puzzles come perfectly together as the director really thought carefully over every aspect of the movie. It certainly took an inspiration from other movies, like The Others, El Orfanato and El Espinazo del diablo, but it is also quite different in the way the story unravels. The acting was superb, especially by Imelda Staunton, whose performance gave a lot of credit to the movie strength. Dominic West and Rebecca Hall were also good. I was pleasantly surprised by this movie - expected some ordinary scary ghost story, and got complex, although still scary, touching drama.
