If there's macramé or anything vaguely knotty in a British film you know it's going to be creepy – this country's foremost genre.

Jessica Bardem plays lonely 15-year-old Marie who lives with her single mother on a shabby suburban estate nestled next to some eerie woods. Next door lives another isolated figure, Filthy (Tony Curran), and his young son. While the impressionable Marie is on babysitting duty, tragedy strikes and she's convinced a sinister spirit is pursuing her. A promising debut from Siddons.
