Movie Review: Dark Circles (2013)

Dark Circles is a movie deals with changes on a couple  after having their first baby. They leave the city to raise the girl in the outskirts. What's interesting is that the first months of a child are exhausting. I know I've pass by them (still am) and if you don't get enough sleep will be grumpy and sometimes in some extends you do things like hallucinate. To make matter worse is that some guys are building another house next door which makes it impossible to them to have a good sleep. They start to have some "dreams" about a strange woman in white and black hair...

Is all in the head? Or is there a supernatural event working here? 
We get to see this family going to shreds... Sleep deprivation is horrible....

Another thing... why doesn't people turn the light on when going into a dark  place? Wtf...
Btw, no away that child is only a couple of months.

The end we hear a radio statement that explains that a woman escape some psychiatric ward (something to do with her 8 month dead child) and we learn that they weren't imagining the woman -she really try to kill family. OK. A closure.

But again we must not forget that this is a psychological horror because part of the problem was  because of sleep deprivation. It's not advisable to anyone who recently had children.

Maybe a different type of ending would be better for this movie. I felt cheated. Almost as nothing had happened. OK the woman was killed, their friend was killed and even the babysitter. But almost nothing happened to them in the end. They left their field house and sleep together... Enfin...
