The concept of "Annwn" (Annwyn) is not made up especially for the film or the book on which it was based. "Annwn" is an underworld or other world found in Welsh legend, a land of the dead. It is said to lay far in the west and could be accessed by the living through a door located at the mouth of the Severn once a year. Surviving from pre-Christian Celtic mythology, it's neither Heaven nor Hell in the Christian sense, humans can enter spiritually or corporeally. This is the first film about Annwn. See more »

Interesting ideas, not as bad as people are making out.
Hey, i just thought i'd comment here to say that, while this is not the BEST horror movie made, it shows some very interesting ideas, and some great directing, it has a few jumps, and some scenes (especially near the end) that look pretty creepy, this really did have the potential to be a brilliant film. The main problem though, was with the structure of the film, from about 30 minutes into the movie, things start to feel muddled, and some of the characters actions don't seem to reflect the motivation you'd think they would have. For instance, when brought back from the dead, by her father, Abrill caused the sheep to go insane and die (yes like in the ring, with the horses), and the way her father treated her, seems unbelievable, considering that actions he took to bring her back, i mean, whats more important, his own daughter, or some sheep? for crying out loud man, dump the sheep and get a new career! you just brought your daughter back from the freaking dead!! If you ask me, without spoiling it for you, Abrill was very justified in her actions after what happened to her, after all she didn't ask for any of it. Another thing was what Dafyyd did to Abrill, surly he would be mad at the man that killed his parents!? If i were him i wouldn't want to do anything to Abrill but thank her! moving on... even despite this, i still found this movie very enjoyable, the opening and the conclusion especially, and the relationship between Sarah and Adele, and when you compare it to a lot of rubbish that makes it to the cinema (boogeyman, hide and seek,alone in the dark), it makes you wander why this is going straight to DVD in most places, because it certainly deserves a lot more attention than it's getting.
