In London, the aspiring stand-up performer Mark Crowe is financially supported by girlfriend Jill Scott that works in a call center. They find a room that they can afford rent in the isolated house of the old couple Henry Baker and Josephine Baker. Mark stays in the room expecting to write gags while Jill works but he is disturbed by the noise of the Baker's baby or by Henry. Soon there is a friction between Mark and Henry, but Jill convinces her boyfriend to stay in the place. Jill's snobbish brother Jason Scott offers a job to Markr but he feels offended. One day, Mark snoops around in the house and discloses a creepy secret about Henry and Josephine Baker with tragic consequences. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Way better than I expected.
21 January 2017 | by logismumSee all my reviews

A bit slow to start with and not overly captivating until short exposures into what is to come, flash, they keep you interested and the last half an hour is horribly good.. This film went from what seemed like it might be a monotone drab, expectedly boring film to a thriller/horror with a few rather disturbing scenes, that old man is probably going to be in my worst nightmares, I do feel disturbed for life after watching this, and psychological thrillers are my favourite genre, so.... A satisfying end, exposing how vastly different Jill was, to who she was when they first moved in with the older couple. The old man is an actor I would like to see more of, IF I can get past the hauntings of this film, he is a great actor. The main girl Jill, is really good too, she is very believable, the rest just do their jobs.

This has the squirm factor that may trigger some people, not for a family sit down!
