Picks up after a slow start
28 March 2003 | by nizSee all my reviews

This tale of a young sculptor haunted by the malicious ghost of his dead father takes its time to get going, but once it does it becomes an interesting, watchable tale with a nice satisfying conclusion. It cleverly keeps the audience guessing about whether the ghost is real or the result of schizophrenia, and has some great looking locations. Its all a little low-key but is definitely worth a look.
