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. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

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 »

Blair witch goes more traditional
8 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Megan (Elisabeth Harnois) is still grieving her twin sister Sofie's suicide. She goes to her family's Louisiana house with friends Christian (Shawn Ashmore), Zoe (Amanda Seyfried), Mark (Matt O'Leary) and Alicia (Hilarie Burton). She befriends local Nick. She feels a presence imagining it to be Sofie. With the Solstice coming, she hopes to reconnect with her but finds a darker secret.

Daniel Myrick who brought the world The Blair Witch Project is going with a more traditional horror movie. Without a gimmick, he gives few scares and little suspense. This one stars some pretty good actors. Although I like all the actors, the characters have little chemistry. This is more due to a very bland script. The ghost story has very few scary moments. The reveal lacks any tension or satisfaction. If not for the likable actors, I wouldn't care about anything in this movie. It is simply forgettable. Nothing annoying or offensive. Just bland.
