The desolation, the coldness and the grey numbness of the Scottish countryside is a perfect place for horror, and the pale, isolated mansion, seemingly deteriorated, to which the central character goes to unfold the dark circumstances surrounding his life is even scarier, although inside the mansion is beautifully organized, with a well-designed, antique furniture, and a beautiful housekeeper, that receives very-well the central character.
Surprisingly, movie critics loved this flop. Since movie critics don’t understand absolutely anything about movies, it’s easy to see why this one matches their taste so overwhelmingly. I give to it no stars at all. This movie deserves a negative score, for its astounding mediocrity.
