Well acted, well scripted, beautifully filmed, nice music score, etc.. The scariest thing about this movie was it contained real monsters, human monsters.

Selfish people wrapped up in their own little world so that no one else matters. The depths of depravity of the human soul is boundless.

Yes there are some incongruous parts but over all a well made film. Anyone watching this film may be haunted by their own past, their own parents, or if you are a parent your own motives for having children.

Since this took place overseas Italy and if you have never lived abroad you do not know how this could be a very real terror in other countries.

I was both entertained and disturbed by this film. Enjoyable and thought provoking. I watched this movie on the off chance it wasn't full f fake reviews and I was pleasantly surprised!

The cover art gives you the impression is a junk movie, but really how many junk movies have cover art that dupes you? The storyline is great, the whole time I knew something was off but couldn't figure out what.

I don't want to go much into the storyline so here is my opinion of everything about the movie: acting: for no heavy hitters, great acting job.

What an interesting story. That is answered, at least in part. I found the cinematography pleasing and the settings were pretty.

The acting was pretty good. The Jenny character is relatable. The father is less believable, though he did well toward the end, and the housekeeper was totally out of the old horror-tale mold.

The story is quite slow for much of the first half and I had to keep resisting the urge to turn it off.

Also, the police show up at the end, but why? One person found this helpful. Please, let me tell you how to watch this movie.

This is NOT a spoiler alert. You will know this immediately. So, If you would like to watch a young woman take a walk in the woods for minutes at a time, or walk down long corridors, or through a building peering around corners,for minutes at a time, this is your movie.

Otherwise simply forward to the last 20 minutes and this is all you need to know: a young woman goes to visit her father in Italy.

That's it This is a total bummer. I was looking for something different to watch, and this caught my eye as a recommendation for another movie I had in my sights.

I was very impressed. Some of the shots are gorgeous and there's that eerie, dimly lit overlay to each shot that helps propel the story.

Most of the parts were well acted, with the exception of a few of the children, but I feel like they had been written to be slightly corny which unfortunately just made it seem like they were bad actors.

The actress who played the main role was very, very good. The plot definitely takes a turn out of left field. Slightly creepy and Gothic without being gory, super scary or jumpy.

Solid 4. This story is a bit confusing at times which can leave the person to wonder what is going on. Oh, and sometimes you might miss something if you look away for a second or two, and then feel lost a minute later and have to rewind.

Also, this movie only makes more sense within the last few minutes of the story. With that said, the story had greater potential from the beginning.

It is different and not what some might expect. It is a story of how unpleasant demented persons can be with regard to the people that surround them in their quest for whatever their quest just happens to be in the story.

I don't think I've ever written a review of a bad movie before, but this one was a stinker. At least, I found it a total waste of time, and even stupid, really stupid.

Now, I should back up what I'm saying, but since most people seemed to have liked the movie, I will save my comments because they would be spoilers.

Nonetheless, this movie really was a waste of time. SPOILER not a true horror movie per se, but still a decent story line, passable acting and it did make sense, although pretty extreme.

The other daughter also sees flashes of children who have handicaps from missing appendages or organs If I wasn't expecting a horror movie when I watched this it might've rated higher, as is average is all I can give it.

Why is her abdomen paining? Blegh, questions are for dummies. Works sometimes. Paranormal cures?

Well, work sometimes as well. We bring you Paramedical Science, guaranteed to work without a glitch through all those nooks in your body medicine and voodoo cannot reach.

Got your organs and tendons turning into bones due to over-calcification? We replace the affected organ from a healthy unwilling donor but also make sure to carve it out in stone and throw in the middle of the lake.

See, we're not sure which one works but if you pull those stone figures out of water, your new organs will turn into stone. Because, Power of the Laaake!

Could we have just thrown stone carvings of organs into the lake to cure you then, since that part seems to trump the other? I guess, but that wouldn't make this an interesting movie.

When you regain consciousness right before a multiple organ harvest from you and the bad guys are right in the next room with door ajar, don't forget to go back to your room upstairs and pull on a jeans.

Octopus Medusa Lady living in the lake is a good woman, though she may be blind. Peter needs to tell her what's happening in the lake right under her nose before she comes to your rescue.

Good thing she has a hotline to the cops though, they'll arrive right on cue to arrest the stepmom for what? It's heroic to kill your disabled stepsister who was ecstatic on learning she has a sister.

Bringing the stone figures out of the lake wouldn't get back your kidney or risk your other organs now that Dad is dead but where's the fun if you don't get to kill anyone innocent?

Shelly's poetry makes everything sound polished. Even repeated rants about "sensitive plants" and organs. All in all, I have no clue to what I just watched.

Hopefully, armed with these hints you will. Good luck! I was initially very excited about this movie. Perhaps it's just the English Major side of me, but I was thrilled by the prospect of a possible eclectic horror film based off of Shelley's poem "The Sensitive Plant.

There's enough mystery throughout the beginning of the film to keep you going right till the very end, if only just to know what exactly is going on in this creepy Italian lake.

I was impressed with the creep factor without the cheap jump scares and such, and I was intrigued by the possible plot line that was kept just out of reach.

Not to mention the fact that none of this meshes with the mythological spirits of these Etruscan Idols. There were so many cultural references in this movie!

There was the story of the Etruscans and the supernatural power of the lake. Poetry references out the wazoo. Awesome, good to have a horror film with classic literature!

Then there was the possible overkill of Peter Pan parallels, which no one else seems to mention in the reviews: the name of the movie is Neverlake, much like Neverland; a group of "orphan" children led by a mysterious boy named Peter who has even more mysterious powers; she READS them Peter Pan; her mother's last name is Darling, for crying out loud!

Anyway, all of this led me to believe the ending would be a smorgasbord of historical and cultural allusions.

But no. There's just some creepy doctor who somehow got away with fathering and killing five children to keep his firstborn alive.

Nothing really fit together. This movie had such potential to be something great and other-worldly, but the storyline just took a fall of a cliff in the last fifteen minutes of the film.

From the beginning, we're led to believe that there's a possible connection between the two: Jenny asking Peter if he likes love stories; Peter saying he only likes the ones ending in tragedies which, if you're already guessing he's a ghost, you might think he means he and Jenny since he's dead ; the way they freaking look at each other; the forehead kiss when he "comes to her" in the hospital room.

All of this leads the viewers to believe that Jenny will be devastated when she finds out this handsome young man she's most likely fallen for is really dead.

Her dead brother, who likes tragic romance stories and who was only conceived because their mother was raped. It's just Just gross.

Overall, I gave this a 4 out of ten, because while I was greatly disappointed, there were redeeming qualities about the film.

I wouldn't say it's a 'complete' waste of time, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it either. As usual I'm completely gob-smacked by the negative reviews.

I read some of them and it's clear to me that some people don't bother paying attention when they're watching movies. Someone was sneering at a ghost supposedly being able to carve figures into walls - clearly they failed to understand that it wasn't ghosts who did that it was actual children, flesh and blood real life kiddies.

I mean seriously, if you didn't bother to pay even a cursory amount of attention to understand that fairly basic yet important point how can your review have any credibility?

Clearly, if you didn't watch it you don't know. At least state that you didn't really watch it so it's honest eg sometimes I skip whole sections of boring movies - and if I review it I'll say so!

It's only fair. Sorry, rant over - it just infuriates me that really good movies, like this one, get undermined by people who haven't even had the decency to give them a fair viewing but go ahead and write slamming negative reviews anyway.

With all the rubbish out there it's a crime that something like this is being rated so low. My score for it is slightly higher than it deserves but I wanted to balance out all those negative nellies who've given it a score WELL below what it deserves.

It's probably a solid 7 in reality. It's so rare. This makes a worthy 3 What an overlooked little gem of a movie.

A refreshing, and effective take on the Frankenstein mythology. I love the poetry, the acting, the directing, the mood, the lighting, the pacing.

It's a bit of a slower burn, but not disparagingly so. I enjoyed it immensely A nice surprise. This film does have a few head scratchers, like how the children are being kept and operated on without anyone knowing and how one of them is surviving without a heart.

The children come across as a little creepy at first, but you realise that there's more to them and the really sinister people are some others.

Daisy Keeping is an amazing actress, and not to mention very easy on the eye too! Her portrayal of Jenny as someone who wants to reconnect with her biological father is quite touching, which makes it worse when you find out the real agenda.

Still, Jenny is a fighter and doesn't just roll over and meekly accept things. The only possible criticism of Daisy is that her character speaks with a clear and lovely Welsh accent, but is supposed to be American.

I don't see how that works, nevertheless, everything else about her is great. The film is suspenseful, but you know from the outset that something is not right about two characters: a father who invites his daughter to live with him but keeps shunning her for a very sinister agenda , and a stepmother who has an unhealthy obsession with feeding Jenny vitamins and supplements.

I was shocked as to the real twist, though I was surprised that Jenny wasn't told honestly from the beginning. The film does end abruptly, but I hope there is a sequel of some sort.

Clearly, Daisy Keeping has talent and I would love to see more of her Welsh accent or not! DBLurker 30 May When I say 'action', I mean getting to the meat of the story.

First 50 mins and yes, I went back and double checked on BluRay were way too boring. So yeah, first 50 mins will bore you. Last 35 mins will enthrall you.

Last 35 mins also are surprisingly darker than I imagined, for this movie. But I would say, the ending moments are pretty good.

Also, the movie is well acted. But some of the dialogues feel too artificial only 'some'. Overall, watch the movie for the last 35 mins, it's worth it.

It's hard to talk about this movie without giving away the ending, so spoilers to anyone who wants to see this movie which is probably nobody.

The story revolves around Jenny, who is staying with her father and step mother in Italy even though the majority of people in this movie are British.

We start to get little bits of information as the movie progresses but it all has to do with the lake in the middle of the woods.

Jenny meets a bunch of orphans and she visits them regularly in secrecy. But we learn there might be something sinister in the lake, something that might want to get Jenny Oh no wait, turns out the creepy octopus monster in the lake has nothing to do with the story at all.

The father is the real villain because he was using Jenny this whole time to harvest her organs so that he could save his first daughter, and the orphans are actually Jenny's siblings and the father has Jenny's mother tied up in the orphanage and didn't actually die.

Oh, and apparently he removed statues from the lake and through stones into it so that the magic of the lake can save the dying daughter.

Also one of the orphans is a handsome boy who can summon the octopus lady for some reason. Also the orphans are ghosts. Or not, they really didn't explain that part of the movie very well.

So, let's get right down to it, the ending makes no sense. Why didn't the father just ask Jenny to donate her organs, she seemed like a nice girl, she'd probably do it.

Why did Jenny need to retrieve the stones and statues? Why couldn't the ghosts do that? We see that the ghosts can infiltrate people's dreams and crave drawings into walls with nothing, so who's to say they can just float into the house, take the statues, through them into the lake, float down to the bottom of the lake and retrieve the stones?

Also, why was the Octopus Lady trying to scare Jenny this whole time if she was a benevolent spirit? And why did the father need Jenny and the Orphan's organs if he has a magical lake to save the dying daughter?

Can't the "magic" cure the illness she has? And why didn't it? Why did he need the organs? And were we really supposed to be happy when the Jenny gets the last stone and kills the poor girl?

She didn't do anything wrong, I feel more bad for the father than Jenny and those dumb orphans. This movie promised so much and yet delivered so little.

This is not the worst movie I've seen, but it definitely has the worst ending. I'll give three stars for the great cinematography, but's that's about it.

The acting is wooden, the writing is bland, and the story is awful. I am aware that this film is not perfect. Maybe eight out of then is a little too high as a rate but you should consider that since the seventies and early eighties the Italian horror movie gender has been completely abandoned and disown here in its homeland.

So it really gives me solace that for once there is an Italian horror movie that I can support without shame. And mind you, I am not usually enthusiastic about my country.

Of course since Italian acting school nowadays is dreadful one of the things that keeps this film going is the fact that the cast is international.

Good choice. None of the actors is a genius but they all are quite good. Tuscany is sunny and full of vegetation and vines and good food and beautiful country houses and charming little towns but in winter it really is just like that.

The screenplay is good. All the flaws in the story you can pick up during the movie have an explanation in the end if you are patient.

It has almost the kind of creepy feeling of a Pupi Avati movie but it actually makes sense in the end. Unfortunately the film slows down a lot during the second half before the final part and this is my main problem with it.

This said, the direction is good and discreet, the screenplay is interesting the CG special effects are few but nice so I am really happy to support this film.

If only there were more like this one made in Italy I don't understand all of the negative reviews.

I really enjoyed this movie. It was interesting, had a wonderful feeling to it. The landscape and music were very interesting And the twist kept coming.

The way the story unfolded Kept you enthralled. I was completely on the edge of my seat the majority of the movie. I could not wait to see how this played out.

It was different than most scary movies. There were moments I felt tense. But the need to see how this played out overrode my fear.

Give this one a go. You won't be disappointed. I would say it had potential, but that's being too generous. Nothing ever really takes off, and the ultimate direction the story takes ends up being predictable.

The supernatural elements are all incidental - they could have just as easily done the whole movie without them. The characters are all pretty one dimensional, especially the father.

I was hoping to see a hidden side with him as the movie progressed, but he turned out to be exactly what I expected.

Sometimes, someone has a pretty nice idea that depending on right, smart and carefully planned execution has the potential to become a great film.

Neverlake is, in my opinion, an example of how a wanting execution spoils this kind of a nice idea. After watching it I couldn't help but feeling bad for whomever was responsible for the general plot, as it felt to me like showing such a story the right way could have been great, while showing it in this way simply didn't do it justice.

As the trailers and plot summaries have already told you, Neverlake tells the story of a teenage girl going to visit her father in Italy.

There, she is confronted by both his half colleague half lover showing a bluntly exaggerated interest in her physical health and a party of children of different ages each suffering from some sort of physical ailment of deformity.

In addition, the storyline is saturated with hints alluding to something supernatural haunting the nearby lake. Enough to make one curious and follow the plot closely, but also enough to frustrate a viewer, because okay, we get it, stop wasting screen time with another unnecessary hint, that's not how you set up a plot twist.

And then? Comes the plot twist, which is nefarious and grim, but has extremely little to do with the aforementioned redundant hints. Following the initial shock I couldn't help but wonder why the heck I was shown all these hints only to lead to such a twist.

Either the hints or the twist should not have been used, it almost feels like the creators couldn't come up with enough relevant scenes.

After all this criticism anyone reading could think that I didn't enjoy Neverlake, but I actually did. The fine acting and intriguing characters along with a story that could have been better but isn't all bad were seemingly enough to create a rewarding Horror experience.

I'm merely saying one should lower their expectations in advance if they wish to enjoy this film, and not wait for anything spectacular or overly impressive.

An average story in an average film. Pairic 12 May Neverlake: This could have been a very good horror film but s left down by pacing, especially in the middle act.

A girl arrives in Tuscany, travelling from her US boarding school to visit her father who has carried out Archaeological work at an Etruscan site in a lake for the past 20 years.

She meets some strange children who tell her that the spirits of the Etruscan's are disturbed because their statues have been removed.

This is a ghost story but also contains a real life saga which is far more terrifying. Worth watching.

Her father lives with his housekeeper and he works in a room which is kept locked at all times. Jenny is curious but turns her interest to a group of children who live in a nearby hospital which she starts to regularly visit.

Both her father and the housekeeper act strangely and Jenny gradually unravels the stories of the children but she also unearths the details of her own strange history.

Eccentric is probably the best word I can think of to describe this film. It starts off quite well if slowly and although Jenny seems normal enough it is immediately obvious that there is something up with her father and the housekeeper.

There is quite a bit of time spent allowing the relationship between Jenny and the children to be developed, but it's also clear that the children are not exactly what they seem to be.

The lake is also a character and draws all of the parties together in the end. Nicely filmed and acted, it's about three quarters of the way through that the action commences and then all the threads are brought together for a conclusion which should answer most of your questions.

Shot in Italy, the production sports a fairly bland colour palette which I assume was done to convey a sense of resignation and hopelessness - this it achieves very well.

The story really stretches belief but if you are prepared to go along with it you might find it entertaining.

The two don't glue together well, and structure gets wonky; any horror movie where a medusa-like monster is there merely for a cameo, where a surgeon performs ludicrously difficult operations and follows them up with esoteric rituals, or where the protagonist first has to throw some relics in a lake to appease phantoms and then to recover other relics from the same lake to appease other phantoms I'm a little different from many horror fans in that I appreciate a good story line within the genre without necessarily needing to be scared by it.

Such is the case with Neverlake. Jenny comes to her father's Tuscany home from New York as a teenager, not having seen him since she went away to school.

The house is near a lake with a rich history of Etruscan legends, which Jenny's father is researching. Soon she becomes bored because Dad tends to be elusive, his housekeeper is rather brittle and Jenny doesn't like her.

One day she takes a walk and meets a blind girl who takes her to visit the orphanage where she lives. She tells Jenny, "It's fine, just don't let the grownups see you.

They're bad. Meanwhile, the relationship between Jenny and her father becomes stranger and stranger. One night, she faints, only to wake up in a hospital bed with her father explaining that she'd been sick with an infection and had needed surgery.

A heavily drugged Jenny goes back to sleep to wake up back in her own bed. The story slows down a bit, and some viewers may become bored, but I found the film so atmospheric that it kept me engaged.

Piece by piece, Jenny begins to learn of the powers of the lake and her father's involvement in the strange orphanage. The children send Jenny on a mission that brings the story to its very satisfying conclusion.

I will say that it was the first time I felt like crying at the end of a horror film. And that wouldn't have happened without an interesting story, good actors and a rich atmosphere in which to tell this unusual tale.

You won't find monsters or ghosts in this film, but you won't need them because the horror comes not from the dead, but the living.

I recommend this film highly for those cold, dark nights when you want to settle in with a good story with both atmosphere and foreboding.

Rainey-Dawn 31 October This film is just as effective as any of the really good high dollar films. I was very impressed with this movie - it's different than I was expecting and a lot better than I anticipated.

I was blown away by how good this film is. I really can't talk much about the film or I will give it away. It's one of those films you will just have to watch for yourself.

What I can say is it's a good ghost story the souls of the lake , a girl with a very strange father and his housekeeper and it has one heck of a great twist so it's more than just a ghost story!

That's all I will tell anyone so I won't ruin the movie for first time viewers. This is one of those films that proves you don't need lots of money to create a very effective horror film I really enjoyed this film.

I mean up to the half of the movie, there is no special thing in the story, but the scenes and the background music keeps you watching it anyway.

I watched this movie with my wife together while she normally doesn't like the horror movies, because they are like comedy movies these days; but this movie, how the story starts and end will freeze you at the end without doubt.

I appreciate the scenarist for the great story and the director for great movie. I gave this movie 8 out of 10 and recommend everyone to sit and watch it from the beginning to the very last minute of the movie.

I was impressed with the first 5 minutes or so, and that kept me around through this entire movie, however though it was a decent ghost story, there are a lot of really boring moments in it.

I felt over all that the first half of the movie could have been titled "The blind leading the ignorant" and that would have been enough to just move past the whole getting to know the children stage.

The main theme hidden under the ghost story, and the mystery itself is that you must pay attention to the foreshadowing, and they try very hard to get you to notice this "subtly".

Jenny's Dad is evil, sorry I had to just blurt it out like that but without that he just look like a looming specter himself, and you need a bit more Dad meat in the first half of the story to establish him, or he just comes across as flat as he does.

Joy Tanner is as good as she usually is, except, well what accent is she supposed to have, and where does it keep going.

Beyond the accent she is as evil from the first scene she appears in as you think she will be, and that takes something right?

Overall I Enjoyed this, I would say it is aimed at a younger demographic surely, the romantic poetry spouting twenty somethings, and younger yet, but you young at heart, lonely hearts might like it as well.

It is not a scary sort of ghost story, it is simply a story of revenge that has been a long time coming as these stories usually are.

Jesse of www. And that's all the explanation you're gonna get about this hodgepodge of a movie. It's a story about a teenage girl going to visit her estranged father or a surprise vacation in the middle of a school year only to get entangled in a organ harvesting fiasco, where she gets to meet a lot of ghosts her age.

Because, Lake. To understand the movie better, these a a few stuff you have to keep in mind: 1. Teenagers are the most trusting and unsuspecting bunch of the lot.

Grandma dislikes Dad, Jenny's meeting stepmom for the first time apparently and by the look of it she's never even heard about her, she's happy happy about it though good on her and she takes dubious handful of "vitamin" pills everyday her Dad prescribed from the moment she arrives.

Without asking why. Without asking how he could've known her health situations without even checking her once. Because, Lake you need strength for hiking.

That hiking with Dad never happens but oh well, we'll continue taking the pills. Teenagers are trusting like that. Vacation, yay, only she's not happy and throws a token tantrum once.

Doesn't matter that she was a healthy young woman all her life. What operation? What did they do to her? This doesn't look like a hospital!

Why is her abdomen paining? Blegh, questions are for dummies. Works sometimes. Paranormal cures?

Well, work sometimes as well. We bring you Paramedical Science, guaranteed to work without a glitch through all those nooks in your body medicine and voodoo cannot reach.

Got your organs and tendons turning into bones due to over-calcification? We replace the affected organ from a healthy unwilling donor but also make sure to carve it out in stone and throw in the middle of the lake.

See, we're not sure which one works but if you pull those stone figures out of water, your new organs will turn into stone.

Because, Power of the Laaake! Could we have just thrown stone carvings of organs into the lake to cure you then, since that part seems to trump the other?

I guess, but that wouldn't make this an interesting movie. When you regain consciousness right before a multiple organ harvest from you and the bad guys are right in the next room with door ajar, don't forget to go back to your room upstairs and pull on a jeans.

Octopus Medusa Lady living in the lake is a good woman, though she may be blind. Peter needs to tell her what's happening in the lake right under her nose before she comes to your rescue.

Good thing she has a hotline to the cops though, they'll arrive right on cue to arrest the stepmom for what? It's heroic to kill your disabled stepsister who was ecstatic on learning she has a sister.

Bringing the stone figures out of the lake wouldn't get back your kidney or risk your other organs now that Dad is dead but where's the fun if you don't get to kill anyone innocent?

Shelly's poetry makes everything sound polished. Even repeated rants about "sensitive plants" and organs. All in all, I have no clue to what I just watched.

Hopefully, armed with these hints you will. Good luck! I was initially very excited about this movie.

Perhaps it's just the English Major side of me, but I was thrilled by the prospect of a possible eclectic horror film based off of Shelley's poem "The Sensitive Plant.

There's enough mystery throughout the beginning of the film to keep you going right till the very end, if only just to know what exactly is going on in this creepy Italian lake.

I was impressed with the creep factor without the cheap jump scares and such, and I was intrigued by the possible plot line that was kept just out of reach.

Not to mention the fact that none of this meshes with the mythological spirits of these Etruscan Idols. There were so many cultural references in this movie!

There was the story of the Etruscans and the supernatural power of the lake. Poetry references out the wazoo. Awesome, good to have a horror film with classic literature!

Then there was the possible overkill of Peter Pan parallels, which no one else seems to mention in the reviews: the name of the movie is Neverlake, much like Neverland; a group of "orphan" children led by a mysterious boy named Peter who has even more mysterious powers; she READS them Peter Pan; her mother's last name is Darling, for crying out loud!

Anyway, all of this led me to believe the ending would be a smorgasbord of historical and cultural allusions. But no.

There's just some creepy doctor who somehow got away with fathering and killing five children to keep his firstborn alive.

Nothing really fit together. This movie had such potential to be something great and other-worldly, but the storyline just took a fall of a cliff in the last fifteen minutes of the film.

From the beginning, we're led to believe that there's a possible connection between the two: Jenny asking Peter if he likes love stories; Peter saying he only likes the ones ending in tragedies which, if you're already guessing he's a ghost, you might think he means he and Jenny since he's dead ; the way they freaking look at each other; the forehead kiss when he "comes to her" in the hospital room.

All of this leads the viewers to believe that Jenny will be devastated when she finds out this handsome young man she's most likely fallen for is really dead.

Her dead brother, who likes tragic romance stories and who was only conceived because their mother was raped.

It's just Just gross. Overall, I gave this a 4 out of ten, because while I was greatly disappointed, there were redeeming qualities about the film.

I wouldn't say it's a 'complete' waste of time, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it either. As usual I'm completely gob-smacked by the negative reviews.

I read some of them and it's clear to me that some people don't bother paying attention when they're watching movies.

Someone was sneering at a ghost supposedly being able to carve figures into walls - clearly they failed to understand that it wasn't ghosts who did that it was actual children, flesh and blood real life kiddies.

I mean seriously, if you didn't bother to pay even a cursory amount of attention to understand that fairly basic yet important point how can your review have any credibility?

Clearly, if you didn't watch it you don't know. At least state that you didn't really watch it so it's honest eg sometimes I skip whole sections of boring movies - and if I review it I'll say so!

Critical reception has been mixed. As is, the film is still an effectively eerie blend of classic ghost story and modern medical horror mystery, as well as an impressive first narrative feature from director Riccardo Paoletti.
