I really like it. A gorgeously subtle ghost story. Got it on dvd.

Thanks Dem. I can across it browsing in HMV. I'd never even heard of it, but it intrigued me immediately with its synopsis involving ghostly goings on at a remote Welsh Inn.

No I'd gathered it wasn't a horror. Still holds a lot of appeal though I will wait for a sale. Sounds a little like An Inspector Calls.

Not sure why you'd think it sounds like The Sim film?

It sounds like a bit of a morality play. With the characters actions and intentions examined via a supernatural scenario. Premonitions and such.

In that respect yes, it's a little like An Inspector Calls.

I don't remember it being that bad, but not that good either, you'd be better off watching street trash again.
