An American artist who has made a series of dioramas of the scenes of mysterious disappearances is invited to the Irish home of a former priest involved in one of the vanishings, and is commissioned to create a model of a grotto near his house. The priest’s assistant has strange ulterior motives in the invitation, and the priest is unable to warn the artist of the danger she’s in.
Woodsy grottoes, statues of Mary, lush bogs, a creepy old house, and constant rain provide the mood for this movie. It’s really much more mood than plot that moves this story along, with its constant movement between dreaming and waking and the dreary atmosphere. Overall a good movie, with a few creepy moments and an interesting premise, but it wraps up a little too neatly and never really provides any scares.
