First the bad news: Don't be impressed by the long list of extras on the back of the box. Not one of it is more than a few short minutes long and none of it is really worth watching. Now the good news: This is a good film. A horror/suspense film that is about atmosphere and storytelling - not semi-nude teenagers being slashed or buckets of fake blood being thrown around. A very good cast perform their best in on-location filming. The director probably knew the chance to film a good script like this on location with such a fine cast is a once in a lifetime opportunity and he made the most of it.
Horror fans, take note of this one!

I'm not going to waffle on about the location it was shot at nor about the brilliant acting or the great score and so on and so forth. I'll merely tell you how it made me feel after I finished watching it. The twist at the end caught me completely by surprize. I didn't see it coming. That in itself was refreshing. Not often I get caught hook line and sinker. A perfect finish to a great movie. I'm proud to have it in my collection.
