Michael left home when he was a teenager and never looked back. Now, after the death of his sister, Chloe, he's returning home with his fiancee Juliette and his angst ridden nephew Brandon. On arrival, they realize that home isn't exactly what it used to be. With high walls surrounding the house and security cameras in every nook and cranny it's more of a military compound than anything else. Enter Gary, Michael's estranged father who, while happy to be reunited with his son and grandson, seems more distracted by other things. As the strange family reunion commences, an uninvited guest shows up and we learn bits and pieces about the real reason behind Chloe's death and why Brandon is so closed off from Michael. This fractured family will have to come together to fight the ghosts of their pasts and make it out alive!Written by

A refreshing addition to the thriller/horror genres
While Compound Fracture reaches more into the thriller range than horror, it still manages to create a creepy, isolated environment with a few good scares while weaving a twisted tale around the Wolffsen family. The story was interesting and not the typical rehash of stories already told one thousand times. It does well to not lead you directly to the ending and keeps you guessing. Most of the characters have depth and their personal struggles are shown juxtapose to the real threat lurking around them.
I found Compound Fracture to be a very good film, that was even better the second time around. The writer included little intricacies and allusions that I had not picked up or even noticed the first time watching. If you are tired of seeing the same old thriller/horror movie with one dimensional characters and story and are looking for something unique to refresh the genre, Compound Fracture is one movie you do not want to miss.
