It doesn't take long for the sheer invention of the filmmaking to seep through the sludgy illusion, making for a perceptive, engaging thriller.

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.

If anything, the concept is a little too high, but fans of Dominik Moll and the Dardennes will find much to enjoy.

Kavaite's film is well made and acted but less than credible.

Independent
August 17, 2007
Having set up its line of murder suspects the film sheers off into supernatural hokum and never really recovers.

all moody set-up with no real follow-through -- like an initially striking sound that has been dampened before it can resonate.
