Janey Andrews lost her family in a crash. She's alone in the world. A judge sends her to a meditation retreat for assault despite her plea of self-defense. The all-female retreat is in the middle of the woods run a doctor and his two sons. The women are forbidden to speak or even make eye contact. Janey tries to escape but she's captured by one of the sons although he seems to be afraid of something in the woods.
It's a watchable Canadian indie horror. It starts off with a creepy notion of these women being controlled by this weird doctor. It could have gone down many different paths. It tries to do something with sound. At least, it's unusual. It does need to decide whether the creature is attracted by sound or is hurt by it. It may make more sense for everybody to be quiet including the men. It may be even better if the doctor's introduction is done in a sound-proof room. The sound idea has issues that needs to be addressed. As for the creature itself, it is not the best although I'm sure the low budget restricted the movie. The main problem is the way the creature moves and the way it is filmed. It isn't scary. The blood looks too red especially in the dark. This horror has an intriguing premise and it needs more work to hash it out.
