A Good Story Well Told
I really liked this film and I think that was because, unlike a lot of other movies about the paranormal, it didn't go over the top with effects. Instead it concentrated on telling a real human story (it says it is based on a real life story) and because of that it came across as much more believable and scary than it would have been if it had been made as more of a fantasy film with lots of clever effects. And even though it was made on a low budget, overall the acting was really good and Rebecca Pitkin is a name to watch out for in the future - she was brilliant. Some of the reviews I've seen of the film rate it poorly but I'm guessing they are looking at it as a horror film, which it isn't, instead of as a drama, which it is, and a very good one at that! I loved it.
