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.

Great horror film, better than most I have seen in a long time
25 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

I recently saw the world premiere of this film at the Thriller! Chiller! film festival in Grand Rapids, MI. Although I did not get a chance to see many of the films over the three day weekend, this was definitely the best of the ones I caught, and in fact it went on to win best feature. In fact, I can honestly say it is one of the best of its genre I have seen, on or off the big screen, in a very long time. The film maker has stated in interviews that he was going for the 1970s horror film vibe and particularly those which built up intense emotion without the use of a lot of gore, and that is exactly what he accomplished. Besides being a great story, the quality of the film itself (cinematography, acting, sound, etc.) were great, and if I had seen it in another venue I probably would have thought it was a studio film. I love horror, but not much scares me film-wise, but I was definitely on the edge of my seat for much of this one. I am really looking forward to what's next for the film-maker!
