I saw this last night after it being made "Film of the Week" on BBC's Kermode & Mayo film review. It's a film that plays on some of our simplest fears - fear of the dark and fear of the unknown. And whilst I guessed what would happen in quite a few areas, there was one point in the film when I was completely engrossed in Julia's anxiety - like her, I didn't know who to trust and I doubted everything I suspected.

For me, the best thrillers are the ones that create atmosphere and this film does it brilliantly. I felt very uneasy and tense for a large part of it. Belén Rueda was great as Julia and I'm looking forward to seeing more of her ("The Orphanage" is now definitely on my 'to see' list). Just a slight warning if you're squeamish about eyes, there's one scene you might want to avoid, but don't let that put you off the rest of the film!

So why not 5 stars? A few things annoyed me - there's no way Julia would be allowed to stay in that house on her own after everything that happened and then there was the rusty, dark community centre (which, whilst visually and atmospherically great, was not very believable). BUT I have to agree with Mark Kermode's comment on the film: "If you can give me one of these every now and then - a proper, inventive psychological... that is put together with craftsman-like care and attention - that will keep me going."

Format: DVD
Julia's twin sister killed herself but there is something quite not right. Is there really someone who caused it or is it just her imagination running wild? When Julia and her husband, Isaac, go to her sister's home to prepare the funeral for Sara, she can feel it too. Everybody around her does not see what Julia's eyes see. Yes, there is evil but is it a ghost? a presence? an unknown something?

This chiller from Spain is superbly crafted and the eerie ambiance makes this a scary affair for me. The director really knows how to play a lot of tricks with your mind, you will never know what is the cause of all of this until near the end of this atmospheric thriller. Belén Rueda who played Julia and her twin sister Sara is so magnificent in her double roles.

Don't let the subtitles ruin the fun in watching this Spanish flick. Make sure you dim the lights and open your eyes!

The story is tense and keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way till its climatic conclusion. It is well filmed, adding more tension and excitement to a fantastic story line.
I would recommend this film. It is well worth the money, but it's best watched with the lights on!

I love Del Torro's films, and this is no exception. Whilst trying to convince everyone she's not paranoid, Julia has to work alone to unravel the mystery of her sister's apparent suicide. With more twists and turns that I expected, it kept me guessing right to the end. Chilling and scary, I would recommend it. Just make sure you lock the doors before you start watching... and keep the lights on!

Hitchcock 2.0 I thinks! This was a genuinely creepy thriller that even had me on the edge of my seat, and believe me I don't scare easily! I really enjoyed it!

I felt as though I had been on quite a journey by the time this film ended. It was a very effective thriller.
