The new one from the people who did Goodnight Mommy. I'm pretty sure I liked this one better than that, although I wouldn't say I loved this. I did appreciate how they basically presented three options for what's going on rather than two in Goodnight Mommy, but I also felt disappointed that they went with evil children yet again. Even before the reveal though, this felt like a remake or new-and-improved version of Goodnight Mommy for English audiences. I guess it's fine that this just replaces their other movie for me, but it would've been cool if they just told a different story.
That said, I did enjoy how the reveal happened earlier in this film and how the film develops a little past that to come to a nice and chilling conclusion, giving some come-comeuppance to those goddamn evil children.
