The Concept

 

This film is a visual horror story, which is fresh and modern. The heart of the film is the characters, which we actually care about and like. Good decisions are made, and for once, they are able to keep their heads enough to think straight in a truly perilous situation.

It is not the shocks that make this scary, or the cheap camera tricks. It is a manic stillness that consumes this environment, a stillness that must be stared at lest it come ever closer. It pricks at universal fears - madness, the haunted house, loneliness and isolation. Much like ‘The Shining’, it is the place which is haunted, and one only has to be sensitive to the spiritual world to be sucked up in it’s evil. It seems to have trapped it’s victims and the only way out is death.
