See it. I mean, this isnt all gore and stuff and many times I sat there knowing to myself what was going to happen and where the twist was going to be only to find out I was well wrong.
However, there is a tension about what might be GOING to happen and a mystery-style confusion about what DID happen and whether you saw what you think you did. It’s that kind of fun that kept creeping in, livening up what I thought I knew about the plot.
The set and production are really nice without any hint of intrusion into the plot – you know that point when you start wondering ‘would they really do that in those times?’ Totally believable.
I guess the one point that didn’t live up to expectations was the very end where there wasn’t enough of a shock-hit for me. That said, I’d watch it again so not such a put-off.
Great acting from everyone including the kids and a really sense of creepyness as it gets deeper into the plot.
