Quick Review

Memorable drama with a very special atmosphere and great performances from a young cast. Notice The Spectre Within-era Fates Warning songs on the soundtrack during the movie. Even if the movie had been bollocks that would have been enough to win me over. Fortunately it is a real gem, worthy of hunting down.

What makes the movie even more haunting is the fact that it is based on a true story.
