    What a wonderful actress. Very haunting…

  10. David Lilley says:

    Thanks for all the comments. I’m pleased you’re all enjoying our film. This was Imogen’s first film and she was a total pro, especially seeing as we shot the majority of the film greenscreen. There were times when she correcting both myself and Stephen regarding the location of the door, we would have been lost without her. I’m sure she’s going to a star of the future.

    that’s a bit spooky, love it!

  35. John says:

    This is one of the few that actually seem legit, not an advertisement or some pretentiously “deep film” that no one, including the writer and director, knows what it’s about. Great work!

  36. Amanda Doran says:

    If you go down to the woods today, don’t listen to what the voices say, And any keys upon the floor, pocket – don’t go thru the door!
