I really did not care about what the movie was about, I just knew that two of my favorite actors were in it, and I wanted to see it. Thrown in a good acting job by Amy Adams (who I normally think is a bit overrated) and we have a really good movie. The description of the movie will pretty much sum it up in a nutshell about what it is about. A nun who is convinced the parish Priest is being a little too friendly with certain boys at the school, particularly one boy. And the title really sums this film up. Doubt, the entire movie you feel like she is right in her suspicsion, but then again, is she ? Or is she just some old school nun who is looking, for the lack of a better term, to bust balls and be a nag. You decide for yourself. A good story with incredible acting and we end up with a really compelling movie. Viola Davis makes a very short appearance in the movie. Her small appearance was so powerful that she was nominated for an Oscar for her 10 minute scene portraying the mother of the little boy in question.
(us) wrote: Shimizu's bloodless vampire movie offers a new perspective (How To Support a Blood-Sucking Flatmate on a Cameraman's Salary) on an overused theme but delivers little in the way of chills or thrills. The endless hand-held camera shots suggest a meagre budget already stretched to the max rather than an attempt at verite and the FX are so poor its unwise to linger on them (especially with a camera). For J-Horror completists only.

(us) wrote: An exceptionally paced, bizarre horror flick with plenty to boast- most specifically its elite cast, including Lorre in a spectacular role.
(de) wrote: A true American classic. Funny to think that some 75 years after it's release, its just as relevant today as it was back then.
