You know the routine by now: a young family moved into a house with a history and before long are assailed by all manner of weird goings on in the form of spectres and sinister events. It soon transpires that the past is very much present and the new tenants will soon have a fight for survival on their hands...
THE UNSPOKEN - which I saw under the alternate title of THE HAUNTING OF BRIAR HOUSE - is an extremely routine low budget horror film from Canada. The plotting is entirely familiar and the scare sequences well choreographed in advance. Even worse, there's an obvious murder mystery aspect which makes things feel even more stereotypical (anyone who's seen the Daniel Craig film DREAM HOUSE will know what to expect here).
A couple of gory moments are stirred into the mix but the ultimate pay-off is disappointing. Watch out for Neal McDonough, cameoing as the sheriff.
