Film archivist David (Rupert Evans) has been having a rough time lately, as he suspects that his wife Alice (Hannah Hoekstra) has been cheating on him with Alex (Carl Shaaban), one of her work clients. This stress is compounded when David's work partner Claire (Antonia Campbell-Hughes) gives him a reel of to-be-archived footage that shows that his house was the setting for a brutal murder in 1902. Becoming progressively more unsettled and unhinged, David begins to believe that a spectral presence is in his house and ends up following his wife to a nearby canal, where he discovers that she is indeed having an affair with Alex. When Alice goes missing shortly afterwards, David contacts the police- only to become the prime suspect in her disappearance. As the police grow more convinced that David has murdered his wife, he struggles to find proof of his growing suspicion that something otherworldly was instead responsible.Written by
Its been a while since i gave a horror/thriller such a good score but its hard not to score this film high as this masterpiece from ivan kavanagh which is a very clever tale of a missing person with a twist of supernatural, with plenty of suspense scenes that get you to edge of your seat or behind a pillow and a story that will grip you till the end of the credits where you will still be sitting there after the film has finished in silence while this film is still taking effect. Rupert evans (david) is superb and he takes you through so many emotions that you don't know what to do or how to handle it, calum heath (billy) is a star in the making. I advise you to watch this but turn your phone off and do not be disturbed for 93 minutes of nothing short of cinema magic but be warned its not for the faint of hearted!!
