Storyline

Six months after the suicide of her twin sister Sofie, Megan still grieves her death and misses her beloved sister. In the Saint John's Eve, Megan travels with her friends Christian, Zoe, Mark and Alicia to her family's house in Nowell Lake, Louisiana, to celebrate the summer solstice. While shopping supplies in a local store, Megan befriends the seller Nick and buys a magazine with an article about communication with the dead in the summer solstice, the time of year when there is the greatest length of daylight. While in her house, Megan is haunted by a spirit that she believes is Sofie trying to communicate with her. In her investigation, she suspects of the weird hick Leonard and while snooping in his house, she finds the picture of the missing girl Malin and unravels a dark secret about the suicide of her sister.

Trivia

The plot is originally from a Danish movie called "Midsommer" (2003). There's only a few changes in the plot. See more »

Goofs

Megan reads a Fortean Times magazine article on the summer solstice, which states "For scientists, this simply means that the sun will be at its closest point to the Earth..." This is not the definition of the summer solstice, and is not true. Perihelion is the point in Earth's orbit at which it is closest to the sun, and occurs in January. The sun is actually farthest from the Earth in July. Scientists would know this. See more »

Good, but Not Perfect
4 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Okay, so this movie went straight to DVD, which would have many people assuming that it can't be all that great, and while it wasn't the best horror movie I've ever seen it wasn't bad at all. Despite what I've read, it had really good pacing with a number of creepy scenes spread out in the movie enough to keep one interested and slightly creeped out. The acting really helps too and you can see all the inner conflicts of the two main characters as they struggle to come to terms with what they're dealing with. The only thing I didn't like was the way the climax of the movie ended. The rest of the climax is great, but the resolution...not what I would have done. All in all, this movie was worth watching and I'm glad I saw it.
