Storyline

Kenneth Richardson is a tormented writer, possessed, affected by a haunted machine. His wife Beth has a volatile relationship with him resulting from the haunted typewriter that has consumed Kenneth's life. Joey is a mentally challenged man with the mind of an eight year old, befriended by Kenneth. Nana is Joey's mother and protector. Jennifer Gesner is a Goth chick, who aligns herself with Kenneth to achieve the most horrifying ritual of Satan worship. Isabella Conti becomes the housekeeper for Ken and Beth, an innocent young lady caught in the web of horror and terror as Ken's life dramatically transforms into a life of misery. Ted Richardson is the father of Ken. Written by John Orrichio

Great Movie!
1 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Aside from the negative feedback of some on here, I decided to watch this movie anyway. Not sure why people are complaining, but I thought it was very good. It was different than a lot of the horror films out there and I thought the actors/actresses did a great job. Interesting ending! It seems as though the movies that are good have low ratings which is why I decided to watch this. I generally don't even comment on here, but I felt this one deserved it. Another independent film I recently watched and thought it was pretty good is "The Cellar Door". It has a low rating as well. In my opinion, people don't appreciate good quality independent film.
