A very interesting movie
30 September 2015 | by mkhalifa88See all my reviews

This movie contains a certain ambiance that captivates you, considering this movie is done with practically no budget its very good and an homage to old ghost story movies. There are some interesting ideas in there and also it containing more than one story keeps thing interesting. When it comes to the acting we see some good performances throughout the movie, the music is very good and it really puts you in the mood for the movie, creepy and slow. This is a different type of movie that not all people will like since it has a very specific style that you will either love or hate, but you have to admire what director Ahmed Khalifa is trying to do, this is something that has never been done before and a step forward for Egyptian cinema that hasn't produced a decent movie for more than 20 years.
