Once there, Laura discovers that the new environment awakens her sons imagination, but the ongoing fantasy games he plays with an invisible friend quickly turn into something more disturbing.

Very good movie. Slow and scattered beginning, appearing badly acted, but all comes together in the end - proving to be a big story line, which is on hindsight well acted.

A visually stunning, above average horror film which kept my interest until the end credits.

An excellent, original thriller. It manages to be chilling and plays with tension without resorting to cheap scares. Brilliant ending, well acted and certainly affecting if you're completed invested in the film.

Terrible! Shamelessly mines every stupid cliché known to man in a twee, garbled, manipulative stew of non-terror & complete boredom. The unintentional laughs do not ease the pain, trust me! Look at the cover- I should have known better.

Cool, creepy horror with original ending. I liked this movie because it has a good plot and is a mystery as well as unsettling you with old-fashioned ghost story techniques.
