really good ghost story
4 August 2013 | by atinderSee all my reviews

The Haunting of Helen Walker (1995)

Now this what you call a good chiller, I really enjoyed it, it dose take long to get to the creepy parts, they worked really well.

There are to far apart from each other and they not just there for one Jump scenes, you see this ghost for more then 20's seconds.

I loved the Raining window scenes was really well shot and very creepy how movie was fixed on that the whole time,

The Kid in this movie was creepy but I think they were a little to cute to laugh like that.

I really enjoyed this movie, I know it updated version Turn of the Screw (There are few of these out there)

The acting was outstanding from the whole cast and Kids were great too

I going to give this movie 8 out of 10
