A refreshingly original, stylish and intelligent horror movie from the mind of Spanish writer-director Alejandro Amenábar.

Set during the late-1940's, a widowed mother of two young children who are allergic to sunlight experiences strange events in their rural country house, as the children claim they can see otherworldly spirits and other paranormal phenomena.

The film gets great strength from its dark and chilling style as well as brilliant performances from Nicole Kidman & the juvenile actors, who convince us of ghostly-goings on in the absense of actual on-screen poltergeists.
