Everything about this film was creepy, from the surroundings to certain animals within the film. A must watch for true horror fans. I loved how the tension builds, it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout.
Some may say it's a slow burner but I did not find this to be the case at all. It was truly atmospheric and gave me genuine chills in some parts. The characters, even the small children, played their parts brilliantly and this certainly adds to the tension of the film. A few parts were a little hard to understand (accent wise) but this does not deter from the tension this film brings at all. Overall, anyone looking for a genuinely creepy film, who has an open mind and has the ability to think about things, then this film is for you
