Paul and Anne Sacchetti (Andrew Sensenig and Barbara Crampton), move to a secluded house in a rural town as they try to move on following the death of their son, Bobby.
Right as they move into the house, Anne becomes convinced that Bobby’s spirit may be in the house with them, as she starts experiencing strange things in the house. Their new neighbours came to visit and told them a disturbing tale about the history of the house. Amongst other things, the house was once a funeral parlour, and the inhabitants of the house were part of some controversy and ended up being chased out of the house.
As the activity in the house begins to escalate, Anne begins to suspect that strange might be afoot, Anne decides to ask her friends May and Jacob Lewis (Lisa Marie and Larry Fessenden) to see if they can help her and Paul make contact with their son, as May is a sensitive and has experience with the otherworldly. Along with May and Jacob, their son, Harry and his girlfriend Daniella, were also invited.
Shortly after arriving, May begins to sense odd things in the house, but doesn’t sense Bobby. She tries to make sense of what is going on the house but only senses death. The presences in the house begin to act more violently as chaos appropriately begins to ensue.
Personally I thought this movie was reasonably good, especially considering the massive amounts of terrible horrors that are being released lately. First time director, Ted Geoghegan, did a brilliant job in creating something unique, that ends up not disappointing. It has an atmosphere that is reminiscent of some older horror classics, and the plot itself is intricate and very unique. What I also loved about this movie is that unlike most horror movies, they decided to do something different and not have the typical slow build up.
The antagonists in the movie are also different than most antagonists one gets normally, so I quite enjoyed everything together as a whole.
Here is a sneak peak into the horrors in the movie.
I give the movie a solid 6/10.
