Movie Info

A small war between science and religion is waged over the fate of a mentally ill teen in this thriller from writer and director Agnes Merlet. Jane Morton (Carice van Houten) is a psychotherapist who has been summoned to a small island community off the coast of Ireland to investigate a case of a profoundly disturbed young woman. Dorothy Mills (Jenn Murray) is a teenager who strangled a young girl outside a church for no apparent reason; she's being kept in the village hospital, where she displays a broad variety of bizarre and violent behavior. Jane soon diagnoses Dorothy as suffering from multiple personality disorder and attempts to sort out the various anti-social identities that battle for control of her mind. But Pastor Ross (Gary Lewis), head of the local church, has a different view of Dorothy's problem -- he's convinced Dorothy has been possessed by the devil, and he believes an exorcism is the cure, not therapy. A number of Ross's parishioners share his views and don't want Jane imposing her big-city ways on them, even as the doctor is getting to the roots of Dorothy's problems.

    This is one of the Movies, at first you think alright this is those classic stuff. A child behaving psycho and killing around, the villagers are acting strange, and it will turn out that "satan" thing, but the twisting end was really sad and surprising. <i>Those tend to harm you, from whom you never expect</i> thing.

    Just to make things clear this is not a supernatural/horror movie not even close as the poster and the description makes it seem but more of psychological/drama about possession and hidden dark secrets that a small island town is keeping. I thought most of it was very slow moving but at the same time it was very fascinating and intriguing that I wasn't that bored with it and I thought the girl that played Dorothy Mills gave an memorable performance. Nothing in it was that creepy, scary or disturbing, it was just interesting and well played out as well as moody and tragic. I was going to give this 2 stars but I thought the ending was solid and it was a nice change from the normal horror offerings as of late but it's not a horror movie really. Overall this is more of a 2.5 out of 5 than a 3 but if you enjoy psychological movies you will probably like this but if you want a full blown horror movie you might be disappointed. Rent.
