A woman is sent to a mental institution after stabbing her classmate in an attempt to conjure an evil spirit called, Mercy Black. Fifteen years later she's released, and must save her nephew, who has become obsessed with the phenomenon.
A newlywed couple, move into a new house across the country, only to find out that their marital issues are the least of their problems. Unbeknownst to them, their grim and lascivious landlord has been spying on them from day one.
This movie reminded me a bit of the movie The Strangers in a good way. While we didn't get a ton of backstory on the family, the Mom's character was very likable. Her acting was quite good which makes sense as she is Emmy nominated actress. The story was fairly straightforward and had some scary moments with good tension and scares. My only gripe was the Dad character who seemed unbelievably gullible to the point where it didn't even seem realistic. A few small plot holes but overall a decent thriller movie!! Worth a watch
