Early Finnegan. Irish horror has established itself as a pretty safe bet. Their films are rarely great, but never bad, and if you're looking for a fun horror, you can't really go wrong with them. Without Name is a film that thrives mostly on mystery elements, but shoots off into horror territory at the very end.

Eric is a land surveyor who is working a big job out in the middle of nowhere. He stays in a cabin formerly occupied by Devoy, a strange man who disappeared into thin air. Locals tell Eric that Devoy was into some weird stuff, believing the Earth itself had created its own unique language to communicate with people.

Without Name is a pretty mysterious film, that doesn't offer an easy conclusion. It gets weirder and more obtuse as the film progresses, with a superb finale to close everything down. Finnegan's direction isn't consistent enough to make this a personal favorite, but it was a damn fine film regardless.
