CGiii Comment

Beautifully filmed, perfectly scored and finely played...Toby Wallace has a definite future in this industry.

Atmospheric, chilling, moving, disturbing...and, scary.

The technical team did an exemplary job - especially the editing and SFX.

Mr Verso, a very fine film indeed...you too have a future in this industry.

In 1995, Jonah is proud to be the loner at the teen mental health clinic. But when a new patient, Richard, is admitted and the boys are forced to share a room, Jonah finds himself forming a connection despite himself. But will their bond be strong enough to protect them from the darklings that hide in the night shadows?
