One the very, scary best
11 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absolutely terrifying thriller about two brothers stranded in the woods who stumble across a decaying mansion, and decide to spend the night. Big mistake. Brandon DeWilde stars as the younger brother, and veteran character actor Graham Denton plays the local sheriff. Director John Newland and his team use massive backlot-built rooms to very suspenseful effect, with lots of contrast between light and dark. A bit of a supernatural element has the sheriff's oil lantern going out each time he enters a certain upstairs room -- and the light comes back on when they are out of the room. Great musical score to go with a great episode, based on a short story by Robert E. Howard. However, I doubt his version had a happy ending.
