Storyline

Jill (Brianne Davis), a girl angry about being blind and struggling with her faith, unexpectedly inherits an old mansion from her estranged aunt (Janice Knickrehm, "Halloween 6"). She and her friends go there to check it out. On the way they have a strange encounter with the creepy Hank (Ezra Buzzington, "The Hills Have Eyes"). At the house, unnerving things start happening and Jill starts "seeing" things. Her friends become concerned about her sanity, leaving Jill feeling even more isolated and under the spell of the force in the house. But when Jill disappears, it's too late for her friends to stop what is already in motion. The ghost that brought Jill to the house and a soldier from the past (C. Thomas Howell) are going to reveal their secret, forcing Jill to face her greatest fears, changing her forever. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When the "Family Bible" is opened, they find that several sections have been marked by the former owner due to their importance to her. The first page has a sentence marked in red. It appears that a red pencil was used to highlight the biblical phrase so she could find it more easily in the future. If we assume that red pencils were in existence in the 1800s, then this is plausible. But, when they refer to the next two sections that the Bible's owner highlighted, we see that the sections are no longer highlighted in red pencil. Instead, the prop manager has allowed certain sections of the bible to be typed in red, rather than the usual black ink. It is obvious that the pages were typed on a computer, with the pertinent phrases allowed to stand out with red ink. It is impossible for an original family bible that was over 100 years old to have only the phrases of interest to the owner typed in red ink. See more »

Terrible writing. Terrible cinematography.
31 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My husband is a writer & I have worked in film (on numerous films as well as television series for CBS). I like indie-films & am all for supporting locals. My husband & I suffered thru 80 mins of this film which really made NO sense. The screen play was scattered at best. There was nothing frightening. It was just random. The flashbacks really didn't make sense - they didn't really contribute to the supposed point of the story. Add to the horrendous screen writing, the uber amateur photography and it just screamed beginner. I am shocked it was presented in a film festival. Not to be harsh but I have seen better cinematography and screen writing in productions produced by groups of high-schoolers. Now I know why I haven't heard of David & Julie Sapp in the professional circles in Utah.
