    The very nature of evil drives this chilling psychological thriller. Oscar nominee* Samantha Morton (Minority Report) and Steven Mackintosh (The Escapist) are Martha and Tomas, a grieving couple who move to a remote Irish village in the wake of their baby daughter's death. Touched by a traumatized, autistic girl whose entire family has perished in tragic accidents, they open their home to young Daisy. Martha believes that with her love, she can help Daisy...until a disturbing series of strange occurrences leads her to believe that her little girl may not be as innocent as she seems. *Best Actress: In America, 2003

    3.0 out of 5 stars psychological horror October 19, 2011
    By F. Sod
    Format:Amazon Instant Video
    Yes, this movie is slow paced. It's not bad though. Sometimes what people mean by "a slow movie" is a movie in which the plot stalls for a good deal of time. This movie is truly slow in that the story is constantly advanced but not in rapid fashion. It has some moodiness and atmosphere to it but not enough to make it spectacular. The cinematography is decent but there's no wow factor to it. Acting is fair throughout. The child star here is worth watching. She really really creeped me out. The telling stares this child pulled off were interesting. She could give a blank yet knowing stare in once scene and in another make her stare seem as if she wasn't even seeing this world but yet had a malevolence behind it. Kudos to the little girl and the director for her performance. About the plot... this is old world faerie mythos stuff. It's not some tiny person with wings casting spells and stealing babies breath. Expect nothing you wouldn't see in real life. And therein lies the true horror. You could encounter events and a person like this in real life... would it make you believe something supernatural was happening? Might you believe strongly enough to take action on another being? It is indeed horror but not gore horror, it's psychological horror. Not a psychological thriller mind you, but a psychological horror movie.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Fairies September 11, 2011
    Format:DVD
    First of all, I would like to say that if you don't know much about fairy lore, then you will not understand this movie, and that is probably the reason for some of the negative reviews. For those who say the cover has nothing to do with the story in any way, it actually does. The figure on the cover is a fairy. She has thin wings on her back...Fairies in lore are not always depicted as being kind little creatures...They were originally considered malevolent creatures and one of the things they would do, including leprechauns, is steal/kidnap infants. That is most likely the reason for the fairy's grotesque appearance. A daisy chain is a garland that is sometimes made by people by tying daisies together...The child, Daisy seemingly "sets off" a "chain" of bad luck in the story. I watched the film several times, oftentimes replaying certain scenes in order to try and put the pieces all together. Which is something the director did a good job with. The audience has to really pay attention to the details of the film in order to figure out the "mystery" of the little girl. In my opinion, it could all be complete coincidence that the bad things happen to the different characters in the film and have nothing to do with Daisy causing them. It is obvious, of course that she was abused, living in the shed, being dirty, and hungry. It is possible that she was somewhat autistic, but a more functioning one. I ruled out Daisy killing her parents, because if you go to the scene where the policeman is talking to Tom, Martha's husband, about the fire, he says that they built it around a fairy ring. A fairy ring is a circle of mushrooms growing naturally from the ground...According to lore the circle could be a gateway to the fairy world. Read more ›

    4.0 out of 5 stars Different than expected but good October 17, 2011
    Format:Amazon Instant Video
    Not exactly the horror genre but I enjoyed it. A little off topic, but I enjoyed a glimpse of rural Ireland. Paranoia and prejudice are everywhere I suppose. One reviewer was correct, the package pic is misleading but I like surprises.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Slow and Ambiguous August 14, 2011
    By Linsey
    Format:DVD
    As many other reviewers have said, this movie was pretty slow. I actually spent a lot of it reading a book while still being able to keep up with the plot. However, its one redeeming quality was that the mystery surrounding the girl was interesting and so I actually watched the entire thing. I really wanted to know what was up with her. Well, this is is a spoiler, so those who are actually going to watch it should not read it:

    You never learn a single thing about the girl or why she acts the way she does! In fact, no questions are really answered at all. You watch the entire movie, and a series of strange, mysterious events build up around the girl. Finally, one last strange thing occurs and the movie just ends. It was terribly frustrating and unsatisfying, making the hour and a half I spent watching the movie seem like waste. I suppose that what the movie's creators were going for was to leave people with the dilema of judging the girl to be either a victim or a monster, but the lack of explanation/conclusion really hurt the movie for me. Sure, some movies can have an ambiguous ending, but they at least give the audience some satisfaction and answer some questions before doing so. This one didn't do anything, it just ended.

    Also, as others have said, the lack of zombies (and scary monsters in general) as portrayed on the cover made me sad.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Worth watching December 31, 2011
    By Selena
    Format:Amazon Instant Video
    If you can appreciate something more subtle and slower-paced than the usual film classified under the horror genre, give this a watch. The atmosphere derives from life in a small Irish coastal village. The film centers around the question of whether an outcast young girl is merely a troubled child or is actually a malevolent supernatural being. Good acting, well-directed, lingers in your mind after viewing.

    This one is good. Good acting and good story. Leaves you guessing as the show progresses. Scenically compelling, great cast and interesting story.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Worth it..
    Eerie, dark & moody, beautiful scenery. I enjoyed it.. Samatha Morton is one of my favorite actresses; she carries the film, as she usually does, in my humble opinion.
