Average as a horror, good as a movie
Piotr Strumieński (played by excellent Roman Wilhelmi) is an owner of a manor at the beginning of the 20th century. He lives with his second wife Ola (Marzena Trybała) but he is haunted by memories about his first spouse Angelika (Dorota Kwiatkowska). Angelika in visions foretells that Piotr won't be happy with any other woman. Piotr cannot forget Angelika's perfect body, this causes his second wife to have an affair with her cousin Mariusz (Mariusz Benoit). Meanwhile his son Paweł has first sexual experiences with Kseńka (Monika Braun), local deaf peasant girl.
Like a typical Polish horror this flick is full of gloomy colours and a bit of depressing, decadent atmosphere however not as much as in "Wilczyca". Instead of greyness, the dominating colour is brown characteristic for Polish autumn. It also contains of plenty of nudity (full frontal). Unfortunately it is pretty boring, but still enjoyable in general. In the end, it should definitely be watched by fans of Polish horror movies. The cast is also very good. Simply as a horror movie I can hardly rate it higher, especially in comparison to "Medium" or even "Wilczyca".
