Watchable but pretty bad
22 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this could be a pretty good movie, but it doesn't develop and pace scenes very well, the script feels poorly edited... the scene where the woman comes and sees the ghost and dies... that whole scene is setup too hastily, it lacks atmosphere and intensity, it misses its mark and is just very lukewarm, and it should have really drawn you in, actually you should have been drawn in already... so this movie suffers from quality directing, pacing, and editing, and the sound engineering also seems a bit of a miss...

A great idea, similar to the movie SINISTER in some ways, but really lacking the cahones of SINISTER...

This movie just got worse using a Celtic symbol for the goddess to make it a story of black magick, when that symbol is used in white magick. "I'm only a school teacher I know nothing about your son" wait five seconds and she knows everything...

Oh boy this movie just gets worse with every passing minute.
