An antiques collector inherits a house from his estranged mother only to discover that she had been living in a shrine devoted to a mysterious cult. Soon, he comes to suspect that his mother's oppressive spirit still lingers within her home and is using items in the house to contact him with an urgent message. Written by
The Last Will And Testament Of Rosalind Leigh is a very low-budget dramatic haunted house short story stretched out into a feature. Our antagonist is Aaron Poole as Leon Leigh. He's come to his mother's house, which he's just inherited. The films begins completely focusing on the atmosphere. The entire film takes place inside the house, in which you are literally surrounded by creepy, old religious artifacts.
The story slowly begins to get interesting but everything leads to dead ends and in the end, everything becomes pointless anyway. It almost makes you wonder if you've just been tricked into watching a student film. While the religious cult themes worked and the set design was brilliant, everything else seems held back by budget restraints or care. The screenplay, if there was one, was terrible but the director shows an eye for shot composition and a talent for creating an atmospheric mood.
