review by
Mike Haberfelner

Mystery writer Anna (Lara Belmont) rents a seaside cottage to get her latest crime novel done - and at first the location seems perfect: Not only are the place and its surroundings pittoresque and atmospheric, there's also little to distract Anna from her daily routine which consists of massive writing and the occasional stroll through the neighbourhood. And that what distracts her, like calls with her parents (Bill Fellows, Sally George), her publisher (Steven Jess) and even her ex boyfriend (Jason Figgis), is more a welcome change than a disruption. So the work proceeds admirably - until Anna starts to see and hear things, things that just aren't there. At first she attributes that to the films she watches and the audio plays she listens to for inspiration, but eventually there seems to be a pattern - which includes the recurring motive of a crying woman. Eventually, Anna starts investigating the house she lives in and learns it once, about a century ago, was inhabited by Winifred Meeks (Julie Abbott), who could never get over the fact that she lost her husband (John West) at sea and then tried all sorts of crazy stuff to get him back. And Anna might just be the medium she needs to come back to our world about 100 years after she has died ...


Winifred Meeks might not be everybody's cup of tea as it's a deliberately slow-paced ghost story that leaves much to interpretation and often hints upon things rather than spelling them out - but if you're open to this kind of storytelling (and I know I am), you'll be richly rewarded as this is a carefully built up spooker oozing with atmosphere and mystery alike, making great use of its idyllic yet slightly creepy locations, and Lara Belmont gives a strong performance, carrying the film pretty much on her own.

If you're in for a creepy time, then this is definitely worth a look!
