User Reviews

Problematic and overly troubling ghost effort
22 February 2016 | by kannibalcorpsegrinderSee all my reviews

Tortured over the death of his fiancée, a troubled man moves into a lonely farmhouse they were intending to move into together and immediately becomes tormented by her ghost as he tries to move on with the help of a neighbor to solve the mystery.

This one certainly had some fine moments to it when it really tried. What really helps this one is the rather strong sense of suspense that runs throughout here which is mostly featured through the interactions within the house. Brought along nicely by the tragedy that sets the whole thing in motion, the effect of being there with the continuous amounts of shock jumps in here with the visions of his fiancée tormenting and torturing his new attempted romance. While mostly being relegated to brief spurts that turn out to be dreams when they do occur, the scenes of the ghost girl walking around the house performing chores and getting trapped around in the various rooms here definitely make for a rather intriguing time here with the way they start the film going about the different intentions of getting back together with him. Even later scenes of them around the house tormenting him have a rather nice time here, while the finale is where this one really picks up with the notion of finally letting the grief of the situation manifested in her ghost terrorizing him in long, drawn-out scenes that take nice effect of the strong storyline and great atmosphere to end this on a nice note. Still, there's plenty of areas here that definitely hold this one back quite heavily. The biggest issue with this one is the fact that there's just not a whole lot of time actually spent on the haunting moments throughout the first half here are just so brief and quick that it can't really showcase them at all. The scenes are over in such a blink that it doesn't really register for much of the time that it was supposed to have been a terrifying experience he had when she quickly flashes around into an ugly ghost or throwing the different women ghosts as well which makes this all the more frustrating that hardly anything gets involved with these scenes. The utterly irritating ploy about them nearly always being a dream doesn't help them all that much either, and along with the bland pace and drama-like feel that runs throughout the majority of the time here which are even bigger crippling factors. As well with the inability to really tell what made the other ghosts appear or their influence on the story, these here all hold this one down.

Rated Unrated/R: Violence and Language.
