The Shinning, at the Cemetery
8 June 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The family man and aspirant writer Richard McCarthy (Linden Ashby) is visited by the estate attorney Dean Routsong (John McCook), who tells him that he has inherited a family estate in Springfield. Richard travels with his wife Amy (Gabrielle Carteris) and their son Matthew (Joseph Castanon) and discovers that the spot is a family cemetery. When Amy asks the attorney how much the land is worth, Dean answers 2.5 million-dollars. However he advises that they must run the business for at least six years, otherwise they can not sell it.

The family moves to the house and Richard intends to use the environment to find inspiration to write horror novels. However, Richard locks himself in a room with a typewriter, where he hears voices and whispers; and becomes obsessed to write his novel. Amy sees a ghost in the house while Matthew befriends the boy Peter (Kyle McCaffrey) that stays in the cemetery with his mother. Sooner Amy learns that Richard has also inherited his family legacy: a tradition of murders.

"Plot 7" is a surprisingly good low-budget horror movie. The story is a kind of rip-off of "The Shinning" but in a different background, with a writer isolated with his wife and son in a family cemetery driving insane and becoming a dangerous murderer. The acting and the make-up are decent; however, the twists in the very end make the screenplay interesting. If the viewer sees this film with low expectation, he or she may have a pleasant surprise. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Cemitério Macabro" ("Macabre Cemetery")
