good film. Not overly scaryBy QEHB (2 reviews) , 17 Dec 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]Really liked the story idea. the colours of the drab mid 70's are great. it works really well. its not a terrifying horror movie; the moments of horror are actually quite ironic and unseen at times, and are somehow better than hollywood effects for that.

Just boringBy Watcher08 (1 review) , 24 May 2013I do not really have much to say about this film because to be honest it really bored me and nothing much happened. It wasn't original or different in anyway, it was just your typical ghost-with-unfinished-business film. This film had no logic and a poor ending without any real revelations about what happened or why. I think that the film could have been squeezed into a 10 minute clip and still have the same effect. Wouldn't recommend it.
Like a not very scary episode of 'Johnny Briggs'!By SirEel (1 review) , 23 May 2013Pretty poor, slightly comically so, which I'm still not actually sure if it's supposed to be. Probably the scariest thing is some of the acting: Look out for a cameo from a rent-a-medium(?) who appears to be the Yorkshire lovechild of Sean Lock and Harry Hill, and a hammy priest who masterfully; seamlessly switches accents between Scottish, Irish, Scandinavian, and even Japanese I think. In fact that's probably worth another star on its own, bringing the total to two.
Loved the wallpaper!By Loopgrinder (119 reviews) , 22 May 2013A fairly average British 'horror' movie set in the 70's - the set design and attention to detail was very good however the horror was rather unbelievable. Even though it is allegedly based on real events, and the director himself had an association, there was a lot of artistic license used. Good acting from newcomer Tasha Connor - a name to look out for in the future.

British ExorcistBy DoctorWho (112 reviews) from Epping , 21 May 2013This is a fantastic British Film that if you like ghost stories you will not be disappointed by. The 1974 backdrop was beautifully filmed, with not so much as a single modern car straying into the action (as sometimes happens). This is allegedly based on a true story and has plenty of tense and scary moments (although nothing too terrifying). I would say the scare level is just exactly right, plenty of suspense, but you won't be scarred by gory images or have sleepless nights. The acting was pretty good, always nice to see Kate Ashfield. Although in my opinion this film is not as disturbing as 'The Exorcist', it does cover similar subject matter yet remains quite a different film while maintaining a decent fright level. If you enjoyed 'The Exorcist', 'The Others', or 'Paranormal Activity' then you should enjoy this.
