Nicole Kidman stars as a mother valiantly trying to protect her two children in this deviously spine tingling ghost story that takes place on a mist-shrouded island estate near the end of World War II. Something bizarre is affecting poor Nicole's mind after new service people come to tend the house and grounds and she is determined to ascend every dark stairway and gloomy moor to discover this beguiling mystery. Incredibly effective in its use of shadows, sound and stillness to create mounting dread and suspense. A definite for those who enjoy a good, ingenious twist with their thrills and chills!

I just viewed this movie the other day, and I was astounded. It was fantasticly made, well written, great plot, and Perfect performance by Nicole Kidman. It's a great movie to add to your Halloween DVD collection. It will creep you out, and keep you guessing until the very last minute of the movie. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good ghost story and who loves a great movie.

This film was simply so well done. The set was erie, the lighting was ghostly, the music was frightening, and the acting was flawless. This group of actors made the movie. Along with how the directing and writing of the movie brought the mood back to an old fashioned kind of "Scary", similar to "The Haunting". Creaks around the house, light changing, whispers, doors slamming, but not gore, none at all. This is what all "Scary" movies should be like still, leaving the thrills to the imagination rather than showing a drill going into a man's skull. Anyway, I recommend seeing this film, and it has a great ending.
