An original and gripping thriller. A family moves to a new area and the two young daughters soon find two friends who are just as lonely as they are. It isn’t long before their new friends begin to develop telekinetic and telepathic powers. Initially harmless and fun, these soon begin to develop into something much more sinister. Excellent performances from the young children, particularly the young actor playing the non-speaking autistic girl Anna. Very cleverly done, this is an atmospheric film that will keep you on the edge of your seat. (The film contains some disturbing scenes, including those involving animals).
