I like this movie! It isn't scary, more like...drama! Gud movie on other real life supernatural event other then horror such as karma n premonition. The con for me is that I wanted it to be scarier, atleast that was wat i thought coming in.

An emotionally complex tale of family relationships and class. Not really a horror film, but with some spooky/tense elements. The characters are complicated: many of them do the wrong thing, but for understandable reasons. An emotionally interesting supernatural drama.
