LOVED THIS MOVIE 😄
This will remain one of my favorites!
I predicted how this movie was going to end within the first 20 minutes. As soon as I saw those kids and the maids, I knew what was coming. Actually, I was a little surprised that I was so right about what was going to happen. I know this movie was going for a kind of "Shudder Island" sort of eerie twist feeling to it. Despite being predictable (maybe because I've seen way too many of these movies by this point), it's still a very enjoyable ride to go through. Nicole Kidman's performance is absolutely excellent in this movie. The settings are believable and perfectly eerie. As far as mainstream big budget star-studded horror movies go, this one is quite good.
Perfect good old fashioned ghost story. Not to mention Nicole Kidman. Need I say more?
