I was not familiar with Sean Ellis as a director, but his fashion photography background clearly shows thorough here in this beautifully shot, lit and sure footed direction of a Horror gem. I first saw it at FrightFest (in I think 2008) noting its subleties but it got lost among the louder, brasher fare. Once you go back to it (and remember it is The Broken, not Broken, so there is easy confusion there) it's charms start to work on you. Ellis has clearly seen the best of Supernatural horror: not merely Repulsion or Rosemary's Baby, but The Haunting (1963), Tourneur's Night of the Demon and Ealing's portmanteau Dead of Night, as well as host of others. I suspect this film got lost as 'Mirrors' came out around the same time. A shame and a pity as this deserves more than cult status for its performances, the mood and pace (none of the usual 'Insidious' crashes and bangs, more the seeping dread of "What lies Beneath')m and a great twist. Dark, genuinely scary horror.
