Very interesting, engaging, and twisting. I'm still not sure of what happened at the end, but maybe that's a good thing.
Intense from start to finish.
Excellent movie. Was engrossed right to the end.
Interesting movie not that scary.
The disc froze a couple of times so I may have missed some of the story trying to get it started again.
Worth a watch .
Good atmospheric ghost story. I wish they made more movies like this
This was a very clwever movie with lots of twists and turns. Not predictable at all and kept me engrossed to the end.
This movie started off really well but the end was disappointing. The 'twist' was just too far fetched. overall OK
An excellent movie, solid acting from the main characters and a good storyline that holds your attention throughout, Loved the scenery but a little dark at times, very good twist at the end BUT I did have to watch it a second time to 'get' the whole story. . . still not sure if 'Florence' was alive or meant to be a ghost at the very end? ? ? ? ?
Not a bad movie at all, keeps you guessing...wonderful costuming and set.
I think the British are a lot better at horror flicks than the Americans. Perhaps its the historical gloom and ye olde English manor houses etc. This was a very compelling story and the twist was perfectly timed to keep you interested right til the end. Dominic West is such a great actor. It had none of the outlandish craziness of more mainstream scary flicks. It was 'believable' if you will.
Enjoyable but a little misleading in some scenes when I went back to rewatch (after the big reveal in the end). I'm not a fan of using the convenience of amnesia as a central plot plank (which I've seen in at least 3 horror/ghost movies of this ilk). Well filmed and acted though.
One of the best movies I have seen in a while.
See Cindy's review below... sums it up nicely. I won't be as harsh as her, though -- still quite enjoyable, if a little protracted.
Director Nick Murphy is obviously a big fan of that British psychological-horror classic Turn Of The Screw. Unfortunately Henry James is no longer around to write screenplays and Murphy has apparently decided to make do with a convoluted and rather cliched plot - all echoing hallways, stiff upper lips and creepy children. The acting here is fine and the film well made in a technical sense - but the scares are few and far between and the plot gets progressively sillier.
