Fantasia Fest Review
29 August 2020 | by beetlejuice82008See all my reviews

I just finished viewing this film as part of Fantasia Fest 2020. It's a very solid horror movie.

The film tells the story of two siblings who return to their family farm to take care of their dying father and to help out around the farm. I won't spoil anything from there, but they soon start to realize that something isn't right with their farm.

I enjoyed writer/director Bryan Bertino's previous film, The Strangers, and like that movie he uses the eeriness of the farm settling to build atmosphere and tension. And just like The Strangers, this film also features unwanted visitors, but just in a different way.

It has a lot of quieter moments to build tension and it does payoff when some of the scares come into play. There were a few things that I wasn't expecting/didn't know which direction they were going to take.

With good performance along with the atmosphere and cinematography, I really dug this film. Check it out when it becomes available.
