"The Harrow" possesses an older film noir/psychological thriller style that you don't get every year. If you like slow build/"Memento" like stories with the flashback/present structure, you'll really enjoy "The Harrow". I was pleasantly surprised how the characters pulled me into their worlds, and there's a great sense of menace that hangs over the film, even though you know from the get go the beautiful Gale (played by the stunning Maggie Geha) is to meet a horrible end. The sister, Ruth shows up years later (a great performance by Sonya Harum) and she stirs the pot of the haunted Miller (a solid performance by Tom McKay, from the Hatfield McCoys TV show) and his memory slowly comes back to the horror of a fateful night that took his lover, Gale from him. There is a great twist at the end, but don't want to spoil it, but the ending is all the more meaningful because of the dramatic build up to the end. It's not horror movie material, but its definitely great dramatic/psychological thriller material if you're looking for a really good story with great performances and solid direction. It's also a beautiful film to look at if you love great cinematography.
