Storyline

Having recovered from a shattering emotional breakdown, college professor Ben Marshall relocates to the countryside with his wife and young son, hoping for a fresh start. He has a teaching job lined up and a new home to move into; things finally look to be going Ben's way. Until, that is, he starts to feel that something isn't quite right in the house. Finding himself plagued by spectral visions, Ben becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth behind a local mystery that appears to be putting the lives of his family in danger. Written by Michael Blyth - London Film Festival 2013

Moody Indie that strikes a nerve
16 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Very well made British thriller from a directing/writing/producing team I hadn't heard of before. Lots of attention to detail has gone into this film, from the sound design to the smart, layered writing that has a few tricks up it's sleeve. On top of that the score by Lorne Balfe, who I have followed for a while is very inventive and has a lot of character. The two leads we're well cast in their roles and much enjoyed seeing Paul Kaye in a very different role to what he has played in the past. Nice to see a film that keeps the horror psychological rather than in your face. This low budget film has production values that punch well above its weight. Looking forward to see what they come up with next.
