Storyline

Guy Cooley moves to an old farm in Princeton with his wife Jeanne Cooley and their two daughters, Molly and Lucy, to build eight windmills to generate clean power to the city. He was hired by the local Samantha Porter, who owns with her relative Jonas Dodd the lands in the woods where the facility will be built. The Cooley family has a cold reception in town, and while voting for the approval of the project, the old woman Gretchen Caswell votes against the construction with many followers and mentions the historic importance of the spot and the name of Martha. Jeanne researches and discloses that two hundred and fifty years ago, a girl called Lucy Keyes got lost in the woods and in spite of the efforts of her mother Martha Keyes and the locals, she was never found. When the ghost of Martha comes to the fields around their property calling for Lucy, Jeanne realizes that the legend is true and that there are many hidden secrets in that location.

Slow Moving
15 April 2020 | by shmarieSee all my reviews

I was tempted at many times to shut off this movie as it was very slow moving and, although I was intrigued at moments throughout due to the sense of foreboding, it didn't allow me to connect with many of the adult characters and- since I tend to watch movies on Amazon Prime late at night- it wasn't enough to hold me in suspense as much as I had hoped (I have been pleasantly surprised before). Towards the end of the movie I did start to feel grateful that I hadn't switched it off. One good selling point is that it is based on a local legend (apparently), so if you are from the area in which said legend did allegedly take place, I would recommend it for you. But this is NOT a masterpiece. That being said, it does beat some of the stinkers you get for free on Amazon prime.
