"Something is out there, and it wants to kill you."
Classic, in the dark, flashlight on the face, shivers up your spine, engrossing ghost story.You've never seen fear, doubt, and uncertainty in a horror movie play itself out like this.
The film makers grab the audience by the throat and they don't let go. ever. This film is meant to invite you in, suspend your disbelief and show you real terror.
As far as horror films go, it plays on the best psychological elements of the genre with an added realism that is just plain eerie.
If you like being scared, go see it. Those with more delicate constitutions who have overwhelming reactions to raw, primal emotional expression, may want to take a teddy, or a psychiatrist.
The film is slack in a few places where it tries to keep pulling the audience into its labyrinth of psychological tortures, but recovers quickly, and I soon found myself engrossed again, forgetting all about the moments that made me say, with some relief, "see, this isn't real".
