Review by Suzdal
3 stars out of 4

Actually I enjoyed this film, the plot is relatively simple but coherent and maintained my interest. The cast is medium to good and although deliberately slow the mood is well set by the lighting, wardrobe and sets. But when you come down to it it IS basically Rosemary's Baby and although visually very nicely shot and staged the end result is probably too spare and detatched for most viewers. I happen to enjoy movies of that type but I know the effect can be off-putting. Another drawback is the distracting similarity between Charlize Trezon's role in this movie and her one in The Devil's Advocate (an altogether sillier but highly enjoyable supernatural thriller) On the other hand it's refreshing to watch a movie were every element of the plot isn't verbalized by endless exposition. So if you like the lead actors and enjoy the more clinical Horror or Science Fiction fare then check this out. If you like it then definitely watch the far superior and more original Rosemary's Baby.
