This stunning horror film from Australia relies on a pervasive sense of dread and unease rather than cheap scares, and the result is a work that brings to mind Kubrick, Polanski, and Hitchcock. A fragile woman and her quirky son find themselves at the mercy of an angry spirit after they read a mysterious children’s book together.
