Antidepressants do not have the effects attributed to them in the show, nor do they come in the kind of shape and color indicated by the prescription bottle. The type of medication that would help for hallucinations and mellow out a person removing highs and lows, are anti psychotics. See more »
Something happened on this property. Something so terrible, it stained the land. Certain acts of psychic violence... The truly evil ones echo throughout time... Like ripples spreading across a pond.

After watching a few disappointing horror films the past couple of weeks this came as a pleasant surprise. The horror element is there but really this is more of a psychological thriller. Special mention goes to the orchestral music score which works well to set the mood throughout.
Quite a short movie at around 75 minutes yet probably to the films advantage. Red herrings are thrown in here and there, the plot twists and turns and keeps you guessing. Some of you may figure out what is going on but the reveal is not entirely obvious.
I was never bored, not once. Is the house haunted? Is she going mad? Are the neighbours stalking her? Could the husband be up to something? As the intrigue builds you feel very included searching for the answer. The ending satisfied. No gore required. No silly ridiculous twists that make no sense, just a satisfying conclusion to a very enjoyable film.
As a cinematic release this may not do very well. As a film to watch cuddled up on the sofa at home it is a first class thriller that dare I say Hitchcock would approved of.
