What a great story this movie has. A family moves  others_ver1in into large estate, and then something starts to happen, something evil. Director definitely managed to get that eairy and suspense effect in this movie, and a great help was the performance of Nicole Kidman and Fionnula Flanagan as the spooky maid.

Nicole is a mother of two photosensitive kids and she is doing her best to protect them from the cruel circumstances that have fallen on her family(light, death of husband, spooky house, other people). Great camera and directing with great storytelling and a phenomenal twists really leave an impression on you. One of those movies that you will recommend to your friends.

Cast: Nicole Kidman, Fionnula Flanagan, Christopher Eccleston, Elaine Cassidy, Alakina Mann

Fun Facts: The disease the children have is an actual disease known as xeroderma pigmentosum. It is very rare with roughly a thousand people in the world that have it.

    like other reviews have said, this is a movie that you would recommend to “others”. i thought the suspense was great but the ending…oh the ending….didn’t see it coming. it had the vibe of the shining but with superb casting and screenplay.
