as good as your imagination wants it to be. a real tantalizing masterpiece of modern horror with a fantastic (and each slightly different) radio play and book accompanying. tons of re-watch value on this cerebral mind-masher.

Unusual, unique and original - this is well worth checking out. Unlike most other blockbuster horrors you've forked out your hard-earned cash for at the local cinema, you'll remember this one for more than ten minutes after the credits have rolled.

The acting is believable, the atmosphere is perfectly built, it's not over the top. Surprised with how good it was. Really enjoyable!
