2 men are chained up in a basement. The captor has cameras aimed at them and is streaming it on the internet - turning it into a "trial" on the held, retired judge's last court case. The viewers become the jurors.
When Simon brings his twelve year-old son, Finn, to rural Vermont to help flip an old farmhouse, they encounter the malicious spirit of Lydia, a previous owner. And now with every repair they make - she's getting stronger.
I was expecting this film to explore the male/female dialectic. What caught me was the story of a fragile woman under the thrall of an older "controlling" man. So, the sex in their relationship I could relate to, great for him, endurable for her. But it seems that she forbade him a true sexual and loving union in bed. I did not see him as the villain there or, frankly anywhere else. He persevered in trying to understand what was going on with her. If she was to portray what women should be, shoot...thinking this movie was a male, pretending to be, enlightened.
