An enigmatic Madame is in need of a caretaker to look after a house; however, this is not an ordinary place. This silent building is the oldest one in the city--and, in addition--it is riddled with unpleasant stories of forbidden occult practices, and rumours of painful hauntings. With such a reputation, many would flee, but this lovely caretaker is up to the job, even though--right from the start--peculiar occurrences and odd sounds start to permeate the empty mansion's long corridors. But, why is that room at the end of the hallway off limits? Will the tormented caretaker rid herself of the ever-growing voices inside her head?Written by
No, i-i'm telling you the truth. I am honestly one of the good ones. Look, i'm waiting for my friends at the bar. Ask them! I would never in a million years just go home with someone i just met, who invited me to their house. If i told them that... and for whiskey? They would laugh in my face!

I just saw this and liked it very much. The film starts slowly by design, and misdirects you into thinking this will be innocent young girl vs. ghost of devil worshipping former owner, but takes an unexpected turn i doubt anyone will see coming.
The camera is always on the lead actress, often in serious closeup, which must have been a challenge for her but she eats up the camera. Lovely black and white photography, sharp direction, great creepy old mansion location.
Like the best low or micro budget films puts bloated un-scary Hollywood products to shame. Two severed thumbs up!
