Storyline

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?

Slow climb to the top but worth it
8 May 2017 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

I almost gave up on this after an hour but I'm really glad I didn't. It builds to a shocking conclusion in the last 20 minutes. If you're a fan of cheap jump scare movies and have the attention span of a chimp then you won't like this. For those who appreciate a good slow burn then this one is for you.
