  • Excerpt: Rebecca Hall and Dominic West make the film work. Also, solid direction, cinematography and a good haunting score boost the film tremendously. Universal did a bang up job on the AV quality. It's a stunner.

Period Ghost Story Treads Familiar (but Entertaining) Ground

  • Excerpt: This film was a first day blind buy for me. I saw the trailer well over a year ago and eagerly awaited its theatrical release but, I guess because of limited engagement or underperformance, never saw it appear at a local matinee. The movie appealed to me because I tend to gravitate toward gothic, traditional ghost story films--especially period ghost films that take the viewer to a less cynical time.

Fresh horror!

  • Conclusion: I actually really liked this film. While most horror films can be pretty much the same, and you feel like you've seen it all before, I felt that this film had a fresh and valid motivation behind the characters. That's why I believed in them and I felt for them. Although some of the scaring tricks was expected, they were done in clever ways that made good old seem like new to me. Definitely worth watching!

'SEEING IS BELIEVING ? '

  • Conclusion: 'florence cathcart' does not believe in the super-natural, she's even written a successful book on the matter. a teacher from a boarding school approaches her telling of images seen frequently at the school, even showing photographic evidence, he wants her, before the end of term to go to the school and reassure the children that they have nothing to fear, and despite a recent tragedy it was safe to return after the holiday.

Some things DO go bump.............

  • Conclusion: Whilst it has stirs and echoes of a variety of classic English ghost stories running through it's story and imagery, this ends up being a watchable but nontheless weaker entry in the genre which really seems and feels more a TV production than a feature film.
