Juvie delinquents, ghosts, sordid pasts, oh my....
11 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Overall, I found this movie dull, but it could have been saved with more in-depth characters. We really don't know much about the troubled young adults who come to the Barn Theatre for "rehab". We know what happened to Vivian, but we don't really know her.

In addition, it just was not scary. It really needed some more haunting moments.

Cary Elwes shines as the tortured soul trying to save a dying little theatre, while running from his own demons - his performance at the end is intense and moving.

A painfully slow-paced movie saved by good acting. Worth watching if you can be patient with it's slow pace.
