Welcome to the House
12 August 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After breaking-up with his girlfriend Veronica (Nina Sosanya), the unemployed John Hare (Stuart Laing) rents a cheap room in an old boarding house owned by the nice Martin Stone (Robert Blythe) and the landlord tells him that the house is crowded by discreet persons. John does not see any other tenant but a bizarre old woman (Susan Engel) in the house and during the nights, he sees weird things on his television and hears violent knocks on his door. When John calls Veronica, she notes that he is near a breakdown after many sleepless nights and decides to stay with him. However, Veronica vanishes during the night, leading John to an ultimate decision.

"Lie Still" has an extreme low-budget, but a good direction, great acting and a scary nightmarish atmosphere with suitable use of lighting. The plot is disclosed in slow-pace, succeeding in transmitting the distress and confusion of the lead character to the viewer. Unfortunately the movie fails with the disappointing conclusion, and the viewer never knows what John might have done to be in the limbo (or hell). Or is he just stressed and imagining the situations? What is the meaning of the tombstone with the words "Lie Still"? But on the contrary of other reviews, I would like to see another movie of director Sean Hogan to have a better evaluation of his work. If this director has the chance to read my review, I would appreciate receiving an explanation about the open conclusion of the story. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Noites de Agonia" ("Nights of Agony")
