Storyline

Maddie Usher is the single mother of Jonah, a mute autistic boy who can only communicate through imagery. In an effort to change their quality of life, Maddie purchases an old house in the quiet suburbs. Upon moving into the empty dutch colonial, Jonah's demeanor completely changes. The young boy's behavior becomes violent and his savant-like skills at drawing reveal a preoccupation with the form of a terrifying, bald, naked man. Jonah's doctor insists it is simply the stress of moving into a new house yet this does little to ease Maddie's worries. Soon Maddie realizes the problem lay not within Jonah, but within the house itself.

Holy Crapola!
25 October 2012 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

The story lulls you in to a somewhat peaceful state and then suddenly you have the crap scared out of you in the blink of an eye. This is a tremendous psychological thriller about a mother and her autistic and mute son. Maddie mother wants to make a change in her and her sons Jonah's life. She buys and beautiful house in the suburbs. As her sons behavior slowly changes, she still does not realize the secrets this pleasant looking house still has for her and son.

Adam was able get grab the feel of many of the psychological thrillers of the 70s. He has chosen the perfect house for the setting of this thriller. Casting of the actors was superb for this shocker! Can't wait to see what he has in store for us with his next movie! Loved it
