    A forgotten classic from childhood still holds up and adds even more substance in modern times. Highly probable 'Paperhouse' is owned by one Chris Nolan. The movie still doesn't feel dated even if the dream world can sometimes look like the set for The Cure video 'Just Like Heaven'. There's an insidious mood under everything that works alongside themes of depression and childhood imagination that messed with me psychologically unlike any other movie I have ever seen. The acting is so damn good from these kids it makes the subject and events all the more poignant and the direction, with a haunting helping hand score from Hanz Zimmer, by Bernard Rose is crafty and provides a bizarre mood that I only can compare to looking at a Meatyard photograph, not similar but their unnerving way of getting under one's skin is quite astonishing. The best horror movie you've never heard about.

    A drawing that became a dream. A dream that became reality. I think there is a tiny bit of a message hidden in a movie. It is a Unique Movie, unlike the movie House of Cards I enjoyed this a tiny bit more.

    This was hugely distrubing to a ten year old boy when I watched it. Extremely odd little story but one that has stuck with me until now.
