Superior slow burner combination of supernatural horror and tense thriller
13 October 2014 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Down on her luck Sara Kimmick (a sturdy and sympathetic performance by Caitlyn Fletcher) has to move into a rundown house owned by her senile Uncle Steven (a convincingly doddery portrayal by Samuel L.M. Cole) after her husband meets an untimely death. Pretty soon strange things begin to happen. Is the house haunted? Or is something more real and evil afoot?

Writer/director John Orrichio does an ace job of not only crafting a creepy and unsettling atmosphere, but also generates a substantial amount of suspense as well. The tricky and intricate narrative keeps the viewer guessing on how the multiple story lines will ultimately tie together at the end. The gradual pace casts a hypnotic spell. Moreover, this movie further benefits from two excellent indie actors bringing their considerable A game to the proceedings: Roberto Lombardi forcefully projects a truly terrifying blend of intensity and ferocity as ruthless and sadistic debt collector Thomas Callan while Edward X. Young cuts a deeply unnerving figure as a sleazy and sinister funeral home director. In addition, there are sound contributions from Jerry Ross as helpful psychic William Manning, Suzi Lorraine as Callan's cowed abused girlfriend Samantha Raymond, Linnea Sage as Sara's loyal gal pal Kelly Davis, and Christina Sampson as the hard-nosed Detective Robinson. Ira Goldberg's sharp cinematography boasts a few breathtaking aerial shots and provides an impressive polished look. Anthony Belluscio's shuddery score hits the spine-tingling spot. Well worth seeing.
