A very interesting horror film....

I watched this film a few weeks ago and i found it to be a very good horror film. i found it to be a very gripping sort of film with some nice views of the Irish countryside. It is about a young couple whose daughter is torn to death by an angry Alsatian not very far from their home. To get over the terrible loss of their daughter they decide to start a new life in Ireland in a small village called Wake Wood. Soon after they arrive there the girl's mother Louise finds that the local villagers are involved in some rather unusual behaviour. I found this film to be very entertaining throughout, with a very good storyline. I thought that the young girl's parents Patrick (Aidan Gillen) and Louise (Eva Birthistle) were very good actors too. I would definitely recommend this film: 6/10

Fresh Take On Witchcraft

A townland in Ireland. Witches lives there for generations. A new married couple comes to town. Their daughter has died in a tragic accident. Shades of 'The Monkey's Paw.' A rebirth ceremony like you have never seen in a film before, and hopefully never will again. Timothy Spall, of course, could make a film about planting peanuts worth the while spent. Here he makes Lord Summerisle seem cartoonish and inept. Witchcraft is serious rebellion against love and all that is right and true. So if we are going to tell stories of witches, let's do what Brendan McCarthy has done here and make them human, with foibles and needs and reasons for their actions. There is a place for buffooning the witch, as in The Wicker Man (though buffoonery wasn't the intended purpose of the film, hilariously), but we must remember that when we rail against any evil, we rail against ourselves. I've come away from this experience with more love in my heart for the lost--being a former practicing witch myself, you see.

Refreshingly Original

The description is a poor description. I passed on this movie several times based on the "tease" description on Amazon.

Don't pass on it. Aiden Gillean is wonderful. The story line is one that is more original that most horror movies these days. It's delightfully tense, and squidgey in all the right places.

I highly recommend it.
