My Opinion:

Whilst it kicks off slowly, the film script to this Clive Barker short story soons picks up and ultimately delivers a tense and terrifying ending that you're very unlikely to foresee. The great cast do a fantastic job of selling the fear and 'dread' that the story is aiming to instill. The bloodly effects, sound and camera work are all very good and do not detract from the edge of the seat situations. The DVD menu is very well put together and fits the film well, but the DVD is devoid of any extras. This is very disappointing for a recent film of this quality. Clive Barker fans though shouldn't be disappointed by the main content.
