Much better than I expected!


I was expecting a run of the mill ghost horror film, but what I got was a film that payed a lot of attention to minor detail, which created a very tense and haunting atmosphere. But I will say it does get stuck from time to time. Did anybody else appreciate the atmosphere?

No one makes horror like the French!

Me! Loved it.

My thoughts exactly! I really appreciated that attention to detail and atmosphere. I was just watching it to pass time but it ended up being surprisingly good.

I was expecting a lot, but ended up with a run of the mill ghost horror film. One of the most boring and uninteresting films Ive seen from Italy.

I totally agree!

Ok it's unanimously agreed that it was a low budget film.
But it may was the best I have seen of this kind.
For those wanting Hollywood style horrors, look somewhere else.
This film tried to create the atmosphere and it succeeded.
For me it was even more interesting because of my job which brings me very often to places like that (abandoned villages) and they always have this strange atmosphere. It's really spooky to see places once full of people to be completely empty and everything left intact.
