In the summer of 1935, 9-year-old twins Niles and Holland Perry live with their family on a Connecticut farm. Their loving grandmother Ada has taught them something called “the game.” A number of accidents begin happening, and it seems to Niles that Holland is responsible. It is Ada who begins to see the truth, and she is the only one who can stop this macabre game of murder.

This movie will sneak up and give you the spooks! From the very first shot, you start to feel creepy, and all you see is a kid playing in the woods. The power of the film is in the brilliant cinematography. the camera moves in a way to suggest, insinuate, something evil. Amazingly, not one drop of blood is shown in the entire film. But it is very disturbing. Some of the photography is also beautiful, the dandylion seeds. But the real power is in the camera movement, that makes you sense something lurking…camerawork is a very important part of the telling of this twisted tale, because the camera depicts certain complex psychological “realities”. An astonishingly well-made film, if you’re a Roman Polanski fan, this one is as good as Roman’s best stuff. A pleasure to see such complex, subtle, well-made horror.
