An American nanny is shocked that her new English family's boy is actually a life-sized doll. After she violates a list of strict rules, disturbing events make her believe that the doll is really alive.
Five interlocking tales of terror follow the fates of a group of weary travellers who confront their worst nightmares - and darkest secrets - over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway.
Will and Eden were once a loving couple. After a tragedy took their son, Eden disappeared. Two years later, out of the blue, she returns with a new husband... and as a different person, eerily changed and eager to reunite with her ex and those she left behind. Over the course of a dinner party in the house that was once his, the haunted Will is gripped by mounting evidence that Eden and her new friends have a mysterious and terrifying agenda. But can we trust Will's hold on reality? Or will he be the unwitting catalyst of the doom he senses?
This is beautifully acted and the pacing was done beautifully too - a mark of a good director! Early on, the setting starts as a normal get-together with friends - all too familiar when most of us here have experienced this kind of setting. The right mix of diversity was captured well in the film. The main character Will has flashbacks of his son's death and he seemed to be the odd one out not really enjoying the party. He senses that something is not quite right about the event but can his senses be really trusted when he is still grieving about his son's death?
Overall, this movie was made very well and it lingers in your thoughts asking what would you have done as a reaction to Will's behaviour. The casting was done correctly in this film and execution is good for a thriller movie. I would recommend this watching with your group of friends while sharing a red wine!
