#1/ Friday 18 June, 2010 / 01:04 GMTA mixture of del Toro like film material, not very original when i saw
this one at the international premiere at the Edinburgh International
film festival 2010.
A film worth seeing but nothing new if you are accustomed to films like
the Devils backbone and the orphanage, (but not as good as either) Not
bad from a country not known for horror/thriller films.
There's even talk of a Hollywood remake with an 'A' list star. The
director wouldn't say who but that wont be as good as this original as
with most Hollywood remakes it will be over the top and most likely

#4 / Thursday 24 June, 2010 / 09:56 GMTAverage in every respect, except there wasn't even an average amount of scares. Completely in debt to many other, better, films, this has nothing to recommend it at all. Sorely disappointed that this was included in the EIFF programme. If it's a late night scare film, it needs to be on late at night, and... well, you get the idea.
