Storyline

Ivy and Echo are not your typical mother-daughter team. Ivy, once an intuitive psychic, makes an easy buck as a bogus tarot card reader; 14-year-old Echo likes old-timey music, hunting, and black lipstick. When reclusive Kurt moves down the road to restore an abandoned farmhouse, an accident leads to Echo's murder, and suddenly three lives collide in mysterious and wicked ways. Kurt assumes he can hide his secret under the ground. But Echo burrows into his head until he can feel her in his bones. As she haunts his every move, trying to reach her mother from beyond, Ivy must dig deep to see the signs and prove that love won't stay buried.

Excellent thriller/horror with a whole new style.
12 June 2020 | by BoristhemoggySee all my reviews

You get sick of the same old pap from Hollywood with no new ideas or style. Then along comes this little film from a 3 person family who blow Hollywood out of the water. Now I'm going to be realistic and say while the dialogue was fantastic, the editing needs a wee bit work as a few places I felt the pace started to drag. It didn't ruin the film but was noticeable. The acting was as good as you'd want without being oscar worthy, and the score was nothing short of excellent. The filming, you'd think it had been done by a Hollywood heavyweight. Aside from all this...the story was immersive and engaging. I really enjoyed this I hope they make another one.
