So what is the horror here, beyond being in 19th century Wales?
Gorgeous, atmospheric, suggestions of horror...and all we get is the day to day horror of being Welsh in the 19th century.
It was pretty good, until it wasn't. I disagree with those that say it isn't horror...it definitely has some elements of horror...atmosphere, some really creepy moments, gore and/or suggestion of gore, and some overall wtf moments. But, in the end it didn't pay off. ***SPOILER*** I REALLY wanted to see some ass-kickin' revenge by the daughter at the end, at least. I got nothin. 2 skull. Ang-Bob says, don't check it out.
Promising start, excellent atmosphere and great characters. The ending will leave you more bummed out than scared.
Horrible, waste of film
