    ★★

Over the past thirty-six years we have seen stories such as Poltergeist, The Blair Witch Project, The Woman in Black, The Conjuring and It Follows; each of which bring something new to the ancient tales of spirits who are in a state of unrest.

    I definitely need to rewatch this film. I had a massive headache and stomachache that decided to attack me a half hour into this film but of course I wasn't going to leave my seat for anything.
