Full Review Page

It’s an interesting enough horror film that is a slow burner with wonderful camera work and scenery and solid acting from the cast as the film starts off with the funeral of the grandmother and slowly progresses to revealing bits and pieces of her startling secret and its repercussion to the family she left behind. It had echoes of Rosemary’s Baby with the ambiguity of what was happening on film but as it gets towards the end, it almost felt rushed as the climax didn’t hit me as hard as it should have. Maybe because it’s been done before and that is the major downfall of most horror movies? I know that’s not fair but it is what it is. I almost felt like if they had attacked the delivery of the film in a different direction towards the end and addressed a few of the issues that would have made sense to the story, then the film as a whole would have had a more powerful impact and because they didn’t do that, I felt robbed of what could have been an awesome horror flick and instead it’s just okay.
