Ghost story rather than horror.
on 1 July 2006
This is a fairly good film in that it has quite good actors and an ok story but it's far from great. I had not heard of it before and had hoped for a good English teen horror to rival all the American ones. If your expecting anything like House of wax or Scream you will be disappointed. It's not scary or gory but it has a good story. Only rented at first because I was surprised I had not heard of Billie Piper doing a recent horror film.
The plot follows 5 students who all end up in a rather large decaying house, typical student accommodation! Then it soon appears that the house has a dark past and there are other reasons the 5 students have been picked to be there. Not a classic but it could have been far worse and given the smallest of budgets this is ok for a nights viewing.
The DVD has a couple of extras. A 10 minute interview with the 5 main cast members on the story,cast and filming. It also has a 22 minute feature on Ghosts, mediums and psychics presented by Emma Catherwood from the film. Overall 5/10
