A young couple moves into a house that may or may not be haunted
The House on Pine Street is a genuinely creepy film that hearkens back to a more suspenseful tradition. There's no gore and very few jump scares, but it definitely made me intensely uneasy. It's a slow (in a good way) portrait of a woman whose state of mind is cast in doubt from beginning to end. Jenny (compellingly played by Emily Goss) is demonstrably not happy about being back in her Kansas hometown, living near her mother, away from her life in Chicago, and, most importantly, being pregnant. The film keeps you wondering arguably to the end about whether what's happening to Jenny is supernatural or psychological. A previous reviewer is definitely on point about the similarity of The House on Pine Street to Robert Wise's 1963 film The Haunting (and the Shirley Jackson novel on which the film was based). It also reminded me of Rosemary's Baby.
