Storyline

Martha, an emotionally fragile mother, who moves to a remote Irish village with her husband Tomas following the tragic death of their baby daughter. Whilst there, the couple decide to take in a disturbed and orphaned autistic girl called Daisy. Uncommunicative and greatly scarred by the violent death of her parents, Daisy gradually warms to her new surroundings. But, as a series of strange occurrences begin to be linked to the little girl, Martha and Tomas begin to hear rumors from the locals that Daisy might be something far more malevolent than she seems.

Just not worth the effort
29 March 2015 | by adamscastlevania2See all my reviews

(37%) The sort of film Hammer would have released back in the early 60's as a B- picture to a more memorable film. The plot itself is somewhat interesting, but it still sort of defies logic as adoption laws in the UK are filled with red tape, but what really lets this down the most of all is the fact that it just doesn't know what to do with itself toward the later stages with a quite poor ending capping off an already so-so film. The performances throughout are acceptable, with Samantha Morton supplying the strongest aspect, and some of the location work is good; but this still struggles to both scare and fill its quite short runtime even with an unneeded sub-plot surrounding Steven Mackintosh's character. Overall it's too good to be a must-see bad film, and not good enough to be plain good.
