After a stint in a psychiatric facility Jessica, her husband and a friend move to remote farm they have recently purchased. There they find a young woman by the name of Emily living in the house and they invite her to stay. When Jessica goes for a swim in the lake, she sees a body just below the water's surface. When they go into the village to sell some old furniture, they learn that a woman by the name of Abigail Bishop drowned in the lake and her body was never found. Local folklore has that Abigail is now a vampire roaming the countryside. A mute blond girl leads her to the body of a dead man but the body is not there when Jessica goes for help. Jessica and those around begin to wonder if she is losing her mind.Written by
This is, without question, the most frightening film I have ever seen. I long for the days when Hollywood could make a truly scary film on a cerebral level, without resorting to buckets of fake blood and wanton slashing. The scariest thing about scary movies is what you DON'T see. This one pushed all of my fear buttons, i.e. fear of the unknown, fear of inescapable doom, fear of the dark, fear of the mysterious "other." Don't take my word for it. See this film sometime for yourself and then just try to sleep with the closet door open.
