(es) wrote: More of a suspense/mystery than your classic horror/ghost movie, Cassadaga breaks away from the J-Horror influenced ghost stories from the likes of The Ring and The Grudge. Originally, I would have renamed this film to either "Little Mary", or "Strings", but after watching through the end credits for a pleasant surprise, Cassadaga is the perfect title as long as the (hopefully) trilogy takes place. The suspense is like taffy wrapping around the viewer's head, as it should be. The mystery gives relief when it gets overbearing. The acting is spot-on, along with the directing and dialogue. If this doesn't turn into a trilogy, or at least a sequel, it will fall short of being a terrific franchise with the potential it has.

(de) wrote: This was low budget. The movie started very slowly and stayed that way most of the movie. Once the story started coming together, it became a decent thriller.

(de) wrote: This is so bad. The cut that the BBFC made is so painfully obvious. The whole film is painful to watch. Not erotic at all. Pointless story that is stupid. The twist at the end makes no sense. It is just a bad copy of Basic Instinct which wasn't that amazing in the first place. Save your time and don't watch this. The only bit that held my attention was pre-credit introduction which sadly only lasted fifty seconds. That means that I enjoyed less than 1% of the film (I actually did the maths which entertained me more than the actual film).In one word: Shit
