Creepy with a side helping of dread,
This review is from: The Last Will And Testament [DVD] (DVD)
I really enjoyed watching this, it has a real sense of dread to it. An old woman dies and her estranged son returns to the family home. He doesn't take the hint of it being one hell of a creepy house and inevitably the spooky stuff starts happening.
What I liked about this is that it works the creepy angle rather than going for cheap shocks or gore. It took a little while to get going, but once it did it was an excellent ride. There was a moment I thought they were going to spoil the good work (don't worry I won't spoil it for you!), but I was pleasantly surprised that they handled it wonderfully/
I also liked the metaphysical angle to the story. It keeps you guessing even after the final credits roll. This is an excellent horror film, well worth a watch.

Where 'horror' is concerned, I like, essentially, ATMOSPHERE, not shock or gore, therefore, after reading this review, I was sold on purchasing the film! Top marks to the reviewer!
