No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
It doesn't take long for the sheer invention of the filmmaking to seep through the sludgy illusion, making for a perceptive, engaging thriller.
Assembled with insinuating skill by Kavaite into a gripping, involving, beautifully unfolding mystery.
Having set up its line of murder suspects the film sheers off into supernatural hokum and never really recovers.
There are shades of the excellent Brian De Palma/John Travolta thriller Blow Out (1981) in this eerie little effort.
Here is the French countryside at its most sinister: sideways glances from hostile natives, inbred yokels, disappearing children, corrupt politicians . . .
A pungent ghost story, evocatively played out in a creaking haunted house.
An atmospheric, slow-burning chiller that rewards the patient viewer with just enough jumps and bumps.
The narrative threads are tied a little too neatly, but it's a promising debut.
If anything, the concept is a little too high, but fans of Dominik Moll and the Dardennes will find much to enjoy.
Sounds used to great effect but the plotting could do with a bass boost.
