Are terrifying strangers, as depicted in a recently unearthed 1st-century church mural, really following her? Or are these frightening visions just the result of a concussion received in a car crash? That's what American tourist Christina Ricci must work out in director Brian (Wilde) Gilbert's supernatural mystery. While it's initially creepy on a thought-provoking level, the chills are lacklustre and the lethargic scares very minor indeed. However, it is glossily produced and features engaging performances from Ricci and fellow traveller Ioan Gruffudd, but the conclusion is predictable and drawn out.


An archaeologist examining the discovery of an ancient underground church accidentally hits an American student with her car, leaving her with amnesia. He takes her home to recuperate where she begins having terrifying visions, which she believes are connected to the mysterious church. Horror, starring Christina Ricci, Ioan Gruffudd and Stephen Dillane.
