Storyline

The virgin teenager Tara is outcast in school and neglected by her mother. While riding her bike back home from school, she is drugged, kidnapped and brought to an isolated mansion by the insane pianist Anton. His cellist wife Judith lures Tara to obtain personal information, and then they lock her in the basement where she meets their son Johnny trying to commit suicide. Tara discovers that the creepy couple lost their son drowned in a lake twelve years ago, and have made a pact with a demon to bring him back to life. The price would be the sacrifice of twelve teenagers, and Tara is the last one. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Grief makes you do crazy things
8 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This really is a sad story. It's about a man and a woman who lost their only child and carry a certain amount of guilt and will do whatever it takes to bring him back. Even if it means making a deal with the devil. The ending really got me too, I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet. Bit I imagine for those who already saw it the ending somewhat caught them off guard too the first time they saw it.

Every director has their own little trademark and this is defiantly has a William Malone feel. I can see some cues from 'House on Haunted Hill' here which makes this creepy. I always liked Lori Petty because she's a little off beat in everything she does, and it's kind of interesting to see her with hair.

Although I gave it a 7, I really enjoyed it. It does have it's short comings for me, but it is fun to watch.
