Storyline

The firefighter Chris Conley buys an isolated old house in the middle of nowhere with neither telephone nor electricity and moves with his estranged wife Maggie expecting to save their marriage and restart a new life. A few months ago, Maggie was pregnant and lost her baby of eight months when Chris pushed her during an argument. The real estate agent Rob Bradley explains that the house is split in two and Maggie and Chris will need to share the space with the tenants Mr. and Mrs. Anderson for at least one more month when the old couple will leave the house. Chris finds a job in the nearest town and leaves the unstable Maggie alone to unpack and decorate the house. Maggie overhears a telephone and weird noises in the house and soon she meets Mrs. Anderson and learns that Mr. Anderson is an abusive husband like she believes Chris is.

House of Good and Evil
8 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After a family tragedy in the chaotic city, Chris and Maggie Conley, in a last-ditch effort to save their dying marriage, purchase an isolated home in the deepest woods, to which they quickly discover evil has a key.

What do we have? A great looking picture, solid acting and plenty of atmosphere. And for what it's worth, the poster is wonderfully designed. So nice to see something artistic and not the same old tropes.

The film is a bit of what you might call the "slow burn", not really picking up until about 53 minutes in (and then creating tension by using music derivative of ABC's "Lost" before slowing back down).

Director David Mun has a long list of credits going back to 2001, mostly in technical categories (lighting and electrical). This is actually his directing debut, which makes it even more impressive.
