    "This is one of those off the wall horror movies. It takes a little different spin on a old stand by haunted house story. It really is well written and the dialogue for the characters is really chilling in some spots. This is a really good movie to watch with a friend or your spouse so you have someone there with you when you get scared. A really good scary movie."

    "Very slow at first and might cause a lot of viewers to dismiss this gothic horror movie. It takes the slow build to a whole new level. I kept watching though because I like creepy 1800's settings and the older type horror flicks I used to watch in the 60's and 70's. The characters are engaging and the story is intriguing . Beautiful cinematography too."

    "I watched this movie and feel it is a great psychological thriller. You start thinking the elderly author is nuts and her house is not really haunted, but then the nurse finds out something totally different. I enjoyed the movie and it was not easy to guess how it was going to end. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Highly recommend."

    "I really enjoyed this movie. It kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. And the ending was satisfying. I really enjoyed watching something besides a super hero movie for a change."
