I hate to use "sweet" since it sounds so sappy but this film about facing truths and moving on, about friendship and love, and fulfilled potential will leave you the better for having watched it. The writing and acting are so real, they disappear and draw you into the heart of the story. One note -- although the closed-captions are very handy for people unfamiliar with the accents, they're kind of annoyingly delayed by a few seconds. Just a heads-up.
When it first came on I thought good more movies should be unusual like this one, keeps you interested at to what will happen next. I never caught on to what is the purpose and how exactly things work to find and show what is going on. I have been left with an openness here. I can't seem to connect, what is required of them, what are they doing, what is the purpose. Perhaps if I watch it half a dozen times, I will be able to understand this movie. Half way through it, I had to come into the reviews with hopes that someone might be able to tell us what is going on? They didn't do that very well either. I have seen a lot of British films, but I still can't figure this one out. I will watch it again some other time, perhaps I can grasp the concept of what they are trying to tell us out here.
Skeletons? As the title implies are their any skeletons in your closet? Better not be or they will come back to haunt you. The powers of Rasputin seen through two investigators who use divination to solve cases is fascinating, surreal, and amusing definitely worth a watch and recommended.
The investigator's power is enhanced by the clients, people they are investigating to find the strongest connection as they are sent psychic answers about hidden secrets their clients do not want to divulge. The movie reminds me of the TV show Ghosts Hunters with a twist. Instead of tracking ghosts or demons in a haunted house they pry into the lives of their clients, one team member has real psychic gifts, the other relies solely on scientific method and EVP meters.
It was interesting to see Davis (EdGaughan), powerfully acted as the gaunt impoverished psychic use his two black stones to gain insights by scrying or divination (better known as the procedure), seeking insight and visions while gazing into a transparent, translucent stones seeing the walls shake with telekinesis as he moves his visions forward.
When they're sent to help a woman (Steen) find her lost husband, things don't quite go to plan. David collapses with many visions to find the missing man and wakes from a trance and takes on a Bulgarian personna from beyond the veil that takes control of his mind and body to solve the case. The young daughter could be a suspect with her hostility towards the investigators and as we later learn her hidden altar and candles used for magic offerings to a pagan deity.
I almost turned this off, it's slow starting and it's late. I liked the actors though, and figured I'd at least watch until I saw Jason Issacs because, well...Jason Issacs! By the time he came on, I was getting caught up into the characters and I'm so glad I was. Well acted by all, enjoyable plot, although it's obscure through most of the movie, which is part of the appeal. It's about being odd, finding the truth and a little bit more. Things don't go as expected, indeed you are never sure exactly what to expect, but I enjoyed the ending enough I'll be watching this again and again. Sorry, can't go into more detail without spoilers, just stick around long enough for them to get to the house in the country and you may just love it.
Like so many others I was instantly drawn into this film. Quirky, mysterious and with a sweetness and integrity of character. I was interested by the many references to Lord Lucan, whose true life disappearance has never been solved. Not everybody will like this film, but those that do will love it. I consider myself lucky to have stumbled across it.
Following the dialog was hard since the captions lagged the scenes by a few seconds but there was a lot of humor in what was being said… and I couldn’t understand a word Jason Isaacs spoke without those captions. Davis & Bennett perform the “procedure” to remove some ghosts from the closet and it’s information that’s brought to light and not a spirit. It’s less about what they do than how they do it, how they get involved with one client and how it all turns out. I thought it was well done, engaging and the acting was excellent… as was the ending. Though a drama it has some underlying comedy that helps it along the way and just seeing them walk to their next job is interesting. It gets 5-stars for being offbeat, unique and very well done and there really isn’t much to understand about it because it’s more about the people and how their lives intersect.
a really intriguing film. plays on the idea of esp and spiritual ability to bend time and reality. at least i think so. they never really explain anything, leaving it open to interpretation. a blend of ghostbusters and the british tv show called detectorists, with two hapless workers chatting mindlessly and getting into mischief. rather fun, partially for their lack of attempt to explain what is going on. be aware though, the accents are thick and the captions are delayed a few seconds which can be distracting.
I love this film. I was lucky enough to catch it on tv and ordered the dvd right away. This is not a typically popular film and I suppose not everyone will like it but I love it's "British" eccentricity and quirkiness and it has a lovely heart warming and sympathetic atmosphere running through it. The concept and method of exploring peoples "skeletons in the cupboard" is not explored or explained to any great depth but if one can accept it it provides a intriguing background to the main story. Like I said, it may not be to everyone's liking - i might be mistaken but I don't think there are any CGI, not much physical action and a concept that not everyone will be prepared to accept - but it is one of my favourite films. Imagine Withnail and I with a bit of a supernatural/sci-fi element that doesn't dominate the film but provides a gentle background. Oh, and such a lovely ending.
5.0 out of 5 starsBrilliant, funny and absolutely original

Everyone I have shown this to has been blown away - an absolute gem of a film that seems to have come from nowhere. Please don't read any plot spoilers, just let the film explain itself as it goes along. Also, for those who are fans, I think this was Tuppence Middleton's first film before she hit the limelight (although she doesn't get much of a speaking part!).

I watched this pilot episode on TV. I love supernatural topics, i found this had a really good story, the characters were totally brilliant it had a really good plot and i enjoyed it so much i had to have the DVD. It has a brilliant concept on the supernatural and mediumistic subject, it was interesting and funny. I would like to see more of this programme. I have watched the DVD twice and still love it.
