Nadin's rating of the film The Housemaid

I really like the film, though I have to admit I was a bit surprised to see how much the story was changed in the remake, which was a beautifully shot film, though an 'act of god' by the director. Although the original wasn't very striking as for its visuals, I'm a lot more impressed by it. The simplicity reveals more the horror than the remake ever could.
