* HeyItsThatGuy: You'd think someone as smart as [[Series/GameOfThrones Littlefinger]] would know better than to get mixed up with the likes of [[Film/HarryPotter Wormtail]].

A British horror film by recently refinanced "Hammer Films" starring Creator/AidanGillen, Eva Birthistle, and Creator/TimothySpall. It tells the story of a couple who, after losing their daughter to a crazed dog, learn that the small English town of Wake Wood, to which they moved, brims with pagan magic. After the death of one of the locals, an opportunity arises to revive their daughter, Alice, for three days. The ritual works and the parents are overjoyed, but something is very wrong with their returned daughter.

Added DiffLines:

* BodyMotifs: The film has a lot of imagery associated with giving birth. Patrick gives a c-section at one point, and the resurrection ritual even looks like a birth scene; the latter part is lampshaded by Louise.
