Storyline

Will and Eden were once a loving couple. After a tragedy took their son, Eden disappeared. Two years later, out of the blue, she returns with a new husband... and as a different person, eerily changed and eager to reunite with her ex and those she left behind. Over the course of a dinner party in the house that was once his, the haunted Will is gripped by mounting evidence that Eden and her new friends have a mysterious and terrifying agenda. But can we trust Will's hold on reality? Or will he be the unwitting catalyst of the doom he senses?

Goofs

The fine wine served at the beginning of the party is referred to as an "'85 Rothschild." However, this is not enough information to identify the bottle as there are two highly prestigious wines associated with the name "Rothschild": Chateau Lafite-Rothschild and Chateau Mouton-Rothschild. To distinguish between the two, they are commonly known as "Lafite" and "Mouton" respectively. However, the bottle that WIll pours from appears to be a Lafite, so the error could be deliberate.

wasted potential
17 September 2018 | by axapvovSee all my reviews

I don´t mind the slow build-up, I think it´s justified, kind of like the calm before the storm. The problem is how much of it is wasted. We focus on the main character´s grief, which in the end isn´t that important, while the other characters are completely ignored. One tiny conversation with each one of them, that´s all we know. The girlfriend Kira literally disappears for an hour. It often feels like Will is all by himself in that house. Suspicion gets bigger but none of the guests seem to care about anything. There are some small comments, of course, but we have 5 or 6 characters devoid of any personality or will. I feel like some events could have been much stronger if those characters weren´t merely filling the space.

There are some fine things, though, I´d never wanted to punch John Carroll Lynch so hard in the face. The same goes for Lindsay Burdge.
