(Review originally written at 10 July 2004)

Why is this movie regarded an horror movie anyway? It doesn't have any real monsters in it and there aren't any scares.

The movie relies on the mystery and the atmosphere with as a result that some things are not always happening fast enough. The atmosphere itself is actually quite good and for some reason it reminded me of "Sleepy Hollow". The way the villagers behave towards the main character are almost identical at times.

At times the movie gets a very realistic feeling but there are too many dumb and uninteresting things in the movie to be regarded as a completely realistic one (especially towards the ending of the movie).

Not a bad movie but too uninteresting and it has too many missed opportunities.
