Storyline

Sixteen years ago, a series of brutal murders shattered the peaceful farming community of Painters Mill, Ohio. A young Amish girl, Katie Burkholder, survived the terror of the Slaughterhouse Murders. In the aftermath of the killings, the town was left with a sense of fragility, a loss of innocence, and for Katie, the realization that she no longer belonged with the Amish. Now, a wealth of experience later, Kate Burkholder is back. Her Amish roots and big city law enforcement background make her the perfect candidate for Chief of Police. She's certain she's come to terms with her past--until the first body is discovered in a snowy field. Kate vows to stop the killer before he strikes again. But to name him, she would betray both her family and her Amish past and expose a dark secret that could destroy her. Written by Anonymous.

Too soft but Gripping and Neve Campbell saves the movie
22 January 2013 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

When I heard this movie was gonna be made, I was excited because I just wanted to watch Neve Campbell .Then I tried reading the book(Sworn to Silence) before although the movie would have missed many good things. After watching this, it was like people said "Books are better". This movie has cut gruesome material and reduced intensive moment.until a climax at the final sequence recovered these mistakes.

Nevertheless, Neve's performance has saved this movie. She's convincing as a police chief who was traumatized but she has grown up with strength and intellect to solve the case.

This movie is not like any typical crime show or Scream (there's a murder but without gore and surprising ending) but it will be much better if it becomes a TV series or has sequels which could focus on the other characters (Glock, T.J, Skid, Mona etc.)
