Last night I happend to find the high-quality version of this movie, so
I downloaded it immediately.
Here I want to tell you what I was feeling about this film during my whole watching.
To be honest, the scarest scene, I think, is at the beginning about American haunting house where old female evil and child-ghosts made me cover my eyes with my hands.With terrified sound, this scenery succeed in scaring me to death.
Then the story shifted to a Britain family without father. A broken-heart and poor mother, some kids.
Being different from other movies, this one at once tells everyone inside and outside the film, there were really supernatural power in the house. So evils and main roles started fighting each other.The leading actor's cross was so powerful that it expelld the old ghost temporarily.
But if you want to transport evils to the hell permanently, you must know its name----so interesting.
Why is this movie so famous and admired? These ways Director used to scare you are similar to many orient thrillers like South Korea and Japan.I guess maybe American feel fresh about it.What matters is that WenZiren make it resonable and convincing for Western audience by connecting Christan exorcism with orient ghosts.
