Goofs

When Christy Wescot (Nora Zehetner) goes to Amy Locke (Jessica Amlee)'s room for the first night, a camera takes her picture, it's clearly a compact digital camera on a tripod, but it sounds like an SLR camera. Then Amy tells Christy that she has set the camera to take picture every half an hour to picture the dark thing. Later Amy is showing Christy photos taken with the camera from two nights ago, and although earlier we saw the camera was on a tripod, but the frame in the photos change in each picture. See more »

Solid B Thriller is best viewed knowing very little about it and with a willingness to accept it for what it is
18 August 2007 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

MTV films makes a really moody horror film. To be certain its the sort of thing thats been done before, but even then this has some genuine shivers and some creepy moments.

The basic plot has a young girl returning home when her old caretaker dies. The girl has a tragic past that includes the death of her sister after a fiery car crash. Plagued by visions and a sense that her sister was buried alive she begins to search for clues as to what happened seven years before.

This one came out of left field for me. I have vague notions about hearing about the film, but I never really remember seeing or hearing anything about it. I'm pretty sure that helped my enjoyment of the film since I had no preconceived notions for it.

Looking like TV movie with interiors that remind one more of a set than of a real place this film over comes its limitations (and occasional WTF moment) to play out almost as if its an extended Tales from the Darkside or other similar horror anthology show. Odd shifts in perspective, some genuine creepy, but not too in your face imagery and willingness to go sans blood and guts except as required make this pretty much a throw back to the old days of horror when less is more. Its not perfect but even with its flaws and the following of a well worn path at times this still manages to be a solid little thriller of the B variety.

Worth a rental with a bag of popcorn and a soda.(Though don't buy this just yet -its a bare bones release that they want almost 30 dollars list for- too much for too little)
