I feel as though I am missing something with this film. It's loved by so many foreign horror fanatics, or even by people who don't normally watch foreign horror, yet I wasn't all that impressed by it. It felt slow-moving, and I always felt that movies when the main character is actually the one with problems is a cliche...however, the cinematography and the atmosphere in this was beautiful.

This is my favourite film, because every time I watch it i notice something new. It's unpredictable, with a great storyline that'll confuse, shock and scare you. The effects and characters are brilliant. An excellent film overall.
